'The Voice's' Biggest Upset Yet
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
"The Voice" results are in and Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, both of Team Adam, are shockingly going home. These were easily the most surprising results "The Voice" has seen thus far in Season 4. Judith, a former backup singer for Michael Jackson, was an early favorite. On Monday night, the singer took on Will.i.am's "#thatPOWER," featuring Justin Bieber. It was a risky move, but Judith had newfound confidence after singing "The Way You Make Me Feel" last week and getting through the emotional performance. Judith was supposed to be Jackson's duet partner for his "This Is It" tour, which was canceled when the singer died unexpectedly. She attracted global attention when she sang the lead on "Heal the World" during Jackson's funeral, but didn't want to seize any of the many opportunities offered to her in the wake of the King of Pop's death. Early on in the competition, Judith was named "the one to beat on the entire show," according to Newsday, and her departure from ...

In fact, 12 of 15 Republicans who answered the late-night survey thought Romney had won by “a large margin,” while two of the three Democrats who answered the question thought Romney had won by a slim margin. A lone Democratic respondent thought Obama won by a wide margin. “Mitt Romney appeared confident and presidential,” one Republican surveyed said. “Obama appeared frazzled because it's been years since his prepared statements have been challenged.” In response to the question, ...

Ohio ministry supports families of prisoners
The Wichita Eagle - almost 5 years
AKRON, Ohio — Linda Davis remembers the hurt and disappointment in the eyes of a young woman who was told she couldn’t visit her loved one in a correctional facility in Grafton, Ohio, because she had a hole in her jeans. “She had driven two hours, only to be told that she couldn’t visit. She had a young child with her,” said Davis, who was at the facility visiting her son. “I felt bad for her and her loved one that she was trying to visit. How many people know that they can’t visit a loved one who is incarcerated if you have a hole in your jeans?” Davis and her husband, Edwin, are on a mission to help families navigate the rules and regulations of the criminal justice system and to give them support via LOOP (Loved Ones Of Prisoners) Family Ministry. The Clinton, Ohio, couple recently established the ministry as an outreach of Hartville Church of God, where they are members. Read more
