UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - April 23, 2015 - Country music superstar and coach Blake Shelton will perform his newest hit single "Sangria" on the Monday, April 27 telecast of NBC's Emmy Award-winning musical-competition series "The Voice."
In addition to Shelton, Matt McAndrew, whose immense talent lifted him to runner-up status in season seven, will also perform on Monday's show. For the Tuesday telecast, both platinum-selling recording artist Jason Derulo and burgeoning singer-songwriter Rozzi Crane will perform.
Among his many awards, Shelton is the reigning five-time Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year and an Entertainer of the Year winner. His most recent album, "Bringing Back the Sunshine," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and country albums chart. "Sunshine" has already yielded the hit singles "Neon Light" and "Lonely Tonight," featuring Ashley Monroe, which became Shelton's 13th and 14th consecutive No. 1 singles and 19 total.

With Adam Levine as his coach, McAndrew's cover of Hozier's "Take Me to Church" landed in the top 5 of the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart last year, while his original single "Wasted Love" (Republic Records) not only debuted in the top 5, but immediately clinched the #1 spot upon release. The track would go on to sell more than 100,000 digital downloads in less than 24 hours, making a seismic impact on the industry.
With its elegant piano, distinct melody and impassioned performance, "Wasted Love" formally announced McAndrew's arrival as a striking singer and powerful pop presence. For his upcoming "Voice" performance, McAndrew will perform his new single, "Counting on Love."
Derulo's forthcoming album, "Everything Is 4," is due out June 2 and highlighted by the Ian Kirkpatrick-produced "Want to Want Me," which became the most added track in the history of Top 40 radio, besting the records of pop royalty such as Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Madonna and Katy Perry. Derulo's "Want to Want Me" was added to 156 monitored pop stations, shattering the previous record of 126 held by Justin Timberlake. The song is currently #4 on the iTunes chart and is nearly gold six weeks after release.
Crane, the first artist signed to Adam Levine's label 222 Records, released her first EP, "Space," on Feb. 16. "Psycho" is the debut single from the EP. Most recently, Crane was chosen as Elvis Duran's Artist of the Month and performed the single on "TODAY." For the last three months, she has served as the opening act for Maroon 5's recently wrapped sold out North American arena tour.
Born in San Francisco and raised in Los Angeles, Crane immersed herself in music growing up, obsessing over influences as wide-ranging as Lauryn Hill and Fleetwood Mac and Destiny's Child and Amy Winehouse. She artfully skips between pop, R&B, alternative, and hip-hop, crafting a sassy, sexy, and soulful sound of her own. Rozzi's soon to be released debut full length album is the next milestone on her musical journey. The collection that features songs with Ryan Tedder and Linda Perry among others, is expected to be released this summer.
