YOUR TURN: Memphians should support The Voice contestants at home

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – This week's "Your Turn" goes to Wayne Leeloy.

Leeloy is excited about the Memphians who are competing on the NBC singing competition, "The Voice." From Memphis, we have Patrick Dodd, Kris Thomas, Sarah Simmons and Grace Askew competing to win fame and a guaranteed recording contract.

Leeloy is already thinking that we need to support these artists better when they return to Memphis. After all, they can't all win. In his words:

If the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau is benefiting from millions of eyeballs and the influence of Memphis music on these artists, I suggest they do their part to support them when they come back home. These musicians slog it out night after night in the clubs on Beale St. and beyond. Time to step it up y'all.

That's Wayne Leeloy's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
