Decatur High’s Sydney Rhame had a spectacular debut on Monday, Oct. 5, on NBC’s “The Voice.” She advanced through the “blind auditions” round and won a spot on Team Pharrell.

Her mother, Decatur School Board member Julie Rhame, also appears with her family during the taping of the episode.

According to her biography, Sydney Rhame began writing music when she was six years old and has written more than 100 original songs. She plays the piano and the guitar.

“Famed Vocal Coach Jan Smith of Jan Smith Studios, whose notable client list includes Justin Bieber, Usher and Sugarland, took Sydney on as a client in 2009 to further develop her as a performing artist,” her biography notes.

    Thanks Dan. I missed the show but enjoyed the replay. Sydney did a great job with a difficult but beautiful song. She sure has changed a lot from those free shows on the square. I see her singing some Crystal Gale songs, not in the finale (hopefully) but to reach C&W fans. Best of luck.
