Goldsboro native Caleb Sasser is a contestant on this season of NBC’s “The Voice,” and he recently made it past the blind audition.
Sasser, 27, grew up listening to gospel greats and his entire family all performed in the church choir. In his hometown, country living, tobacco and corn fields are prevalent and have become a part of Sasser’s upbringing.
After high school, Sasser earned a BS in music business from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. While there, Sasser met his girlfriend, DeAndrea, who is an opera singer. In 2021, Sasser and DeAndrea decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue music.
Sasser has performed in Kanye West’s Sunday Service at the Los Angeles Coliseum and with Alicia Keys’ choir at the Greek Theater and Sofar Sounds.
Sasser currently teaches voice and keyboard at Isana Academies. He loves soul food and cooking and, as he was growing up, he would say he wanted to be a “singing chef.”
