Trinidad and Tobago’s own Triniboi Joocie appeared on Season 11, Episode 5 of The Voice UK. Appearing as the first performer on the October 01st airing, Rodell “Triniboi Joocie” Sorzano graced the stage singing his original Soca composition titled ‘Bottle Over Head.’
Visibly nervous, Joocie immediately excited the live audience and piqued the interest of the four coaches; Will.i.am., Anne Marie, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs. Seconds into his blind audition, lone female coach Anne Marie gave the first chair turn and was followed later by Olly Murs. The talented performer, vocalist, pannist and Nottinghill Carnival Ambassador is elated to embark on this journey.
His entry into The Voice UK is intentional as he shares, “I have always wanted to represent Trinidad and Tobago and the entire Caribbean diaspora globally and this competition gives me the opportunity to do just that.”
Joocie has been successfully advocating for Soca in Europe for over a decade. Earlier this year, in June, Triniboi Joocie sang ‘Pan in A Minor’ by Lord Kitchener backed by a 100-piece pan ensemble at the Queen’s Jubilee at Buckingham Palace.
Though, unable to divulge much information on the competition, Triniboi Joocie is excited to embark on this journey with millions of onlookers. Embracing the support, he adds, “As I have advanced to the next stage I am looking forward to showcasing my talents the best way I can while flying the Caribbean flag.”
