“I didn’t want anybody to know,” said Renee, the 31-year-old singer from Inglewood, who is one of eight contestants headed to semifinals on Monday, Dec. 11.
The comments were made on videos that “The Voice” uploads to its YouTube Channel and Facebook page, with the purpose of allowing viewers to put in their two cents.
“I’ve had a lot of racial comments geared to the fact that I’m an African-American woman and I want to make country music, which they feel is more of a Caucasian-based genre of music,” Renee said. “I’m being told I can’t pursue it because I’m black, or that they don’t want to see a black hyakkendana-hashigozake.comrson rapping country.
“I don’t even rap,” she said. “But it’s really hurtful because, at the end of the day, all I want to do is sing.”
If there’s anything she’s learned from comhyakkendana-hashigozake.comting on “The Voice,” it’s she’s stronger than she thought.

“You have to be a strong individual not to let things like that get to you, and I’m finding that out about myself,” she said. “Sticks and stones break bones, but words they will not hurt me. I know who I am.”
