What’s Happening With Local Celebrity Dez Duron Since His Stint on “The Voice”?

He wowed the judges on “The Voice” and since then, Dez Duron has been in Los Angeles working on his own music. And he tells KEEL News he’s done some recording recently at Blade Studios. The story of how he got onto the show was interesting.

“I was at football camp. I got a call from my manager just saying they wanted me to come try out for this show called ‘The Voice,’” Dez says.  “I’d never seen it, never heard of it. So I flew out there, auditioned for it, came back home, watched the whole season on Hulu in two days, and dropped out of school when I found out I’d made it to the blind auditions.”

He didn’t make it onto the show that time, and he had no plans to try again. But he got a call six months later, and decided to give it a go. “And it worked out for the best,” Dez says. He tells us he had a great experience on the show, too.

“You meet a lot of great people, you learn a lot. You feel a lot of love from your hometown.” He says he and “X Factor” contestant Willie Jones — who’s also from Shreveport — are both grateful to the local community for voting for them.

You can catch both of the young talents when they perform in a Broadway-style musical written and produced by Dez’ dad, Shreveport Community Church Senior Pastor Denny Duron. There are four performances coming up this weekend: 7 p.m. tonight, 2 and 7 p.m. tomorrow, and 7 p.m. Sunday. Reserve your FREE tickets here.
