One Question Interviews: Black Swift

Sally Grayson (Black Swift)

SPB: What did participating in The Voice bring you, both personally and artistically?

When the talent scout approached me asking if I would audition for The Voice of Germany, I was very skeptical. I honestly really didn't think that this was something for me. I'm more of a punk rocker and not a pop singer. But, I decided to give it a go and try it out nonetheless, and I have to say, I'm very thankful I made that decision. 

The crew at The Voice of Germany are fabulous people and I was treated very respectfully as an artist. They want their "talents" to be and stay authentic and that was very important to me. As it was my first television performance I grew and learned about performing in all different environments. As I progressed in the show, the stages got bigger, as did the crowds. Minus the moment in between, when I sang a song privately to Michi and Smudo from Die Fantastischen Vier and Robbie Williams. I gained some great fans through being on that show, and I think probably subconsciously have set my goals higher after mingling with the stars and getting a taste of those bright lights. Artistically, I remain who I was before--meaning authenticity remains intact, but personally, it was a great gain for me and for Black Swift!
