Singer-songwriter, Erin Willett, will be attending our 7th Annual Sideline Pancreatic Cancer Dinner and will perform her hit song ‘Out of The Darkness’ as well as our Sideline Cancer theme song: Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’.”
Erin Willett is a singer/songwriter from Gaithersburg, MD. She was a semi-finalist on NBC’s hit show “The Voice”, and was one of the final two contestants on Blake Shelton’s team during season 2. Following the show, she released her self-titled debut EP which is available on iTunes.
Erin has opened for notable acts including Third Eye Blind and Adam Lambert. She continues to give back as an Ambassador of Hope for The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, an organization fighting the disease that took her father’s life in 2011. She hosted and coordinated a weekly live music night at Umami Burger Williamsburg. #BurgerJam aimed to bring a creative outlet for singers and songwriters in the Brooklyn community, in addition to providing locals with a free showcase to discover rising talent in the New York City area. In the fall of 2015 #BurgerJam went on a hiatus so Willett could compete in Season 17 of NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
During the airing of the show yahoo.com exclusively premiered her new single “Out of the Darkness” chronicling her struggle with depression and self-discovery. At the live finale Erin lost an astonishing 87 pounds and the following day billboard.com exclusively premiered the music video for her single.
