Durell Anthony vs. Zania Alaké - Bee Gees' "Emotion" - The Voice Battles 2021
Hometown: Atchison, Kansas
Resident: San Diego, California
Hailing from a family of musicians, Durell started singing in church at a young age. He wasn't able to keep up with sports due to his weight, so music became his focus throughout school. Durell went to college on a vocal scholarship weighing nearly 300 pounds and decided to get serious about his health and his artistry. Fitness became a passion for him, and after graduating, he became a counselor at a weight-loss summer camp, where he met his wife. When summer ended, Durell started gigging at weddings and eventually turned music into a full-time career. Durell and his wife now have two young children and live in California.
