Who Is Jershika Maple?

Her hometown is Shreveport. She currently lives in Killeen, Texas. NBC's The Voice says She grew up singing in church, but her dad was in the military so her family was constantly on the move. As she hit the teenage years, her family settled down and she was able to concentrate on her music. She joined choirs all around the region and developed lots of friends in music. She's been working as a security guard until she made it onto the show. She does singing gigs at night and on the weekends. She is popular in the local gospel community, but she would love to pursue music as her full time passion.
