She is mom to daughter Zoe, as well as a business owner, author, magazine founder and podcast co-host.   Corrie Donovan is an American soprano and has been praised for her “soul- stripping, lyrical” interpretations and her “polished and distinctively powerful” performances. Donovan, a 2009 TCU alumna, has performed most recently at TCU School of Music at the Bass - Celebrating Leonard Bernstein. Growing up, she spent summers in her father’s homeland, Scotland, where she regularly sang traditional Celtic music, which influenced her approach to music and life.   Jamey Ice was born and raised in Fort Worth, and his music career started in the 6th grade when he was first handed a guitar. His debut performance was at his middle school talent show, where he and his friends performed “Sweet Home Alabama.” Sixteen years later, Ice is still with his band, Green River Ordinance, and has performed all over the world. The local entrepreneur enjoys spending time improving the community, and loving his beautiful wife and daughters.   Darron Turner is widely respected by his peers and students for his leadership and student engagement.

"The Voice" Contestants
Eric Carter is a junior transfer student majoring in music with a concentration in vocal performance from Dallas. Prior to TCU, Carter attended Long Island University and had the privilege of performing at Carnegie Hall with The Cecilia Chorus of New York and the Long Island Sound Vocal Jazz ensemble. Carter’s love of music started at birth. His mother jokes that as a baby, even when he cried, he could carry a tune.    Grace Franko is a senior Spanish major and psychology minor from Clarendon Hills, Illinois. Her greatest passion is music and she has been singing and writing songs since before she can remember. Her sophomore year, Franko suffered a vocal cord injury that left her unable to sing. Now that she has recovered, she is excited to perform. After graduation, Franko hopes to return to the suburbs of Chicago to start her career.   Julia Owens is a freshman education major from Palo Alto, California. She has been singing as long as she has been able to talk! For the past two years, Owens was a finalist in the South Bay Teen Idol competition and she is a member of TCU’s License to Trill a cappella group. Owens is happiest when she is on stage and singing. It is her dream to become a kindergarten teacher after graduation, and to continue singing whenever she can.    Shadman Rakin is a sophomore international student from Dhaka, Bangladesh, majoring in psychology. He is a self-taught musician who can play multiple instruments, compose and sing.
