MOUNT OLIVE – Nelly’s Echo from season three of NBC’s The Voice will perform at Mount Olive College on Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. in Southern Bank Auditorium. The public is invited to attend this free event.
Nelly’s Echo, formed by Nelson Emokpae (lead singer) in early 2007, originates from the premise that music is a two way street. “Nelly” refers to the musician/music and “Echo” refers to the audience’s appreciation of the music. Nelly’s Echo is neither a band nor a solo musician, but a concept of the musical experience associated with its creator Nelson. Nelly’s Echo has self-released two successful albums, performed at over 100 colleges in the past year, entertained the troops in Cuba, and is returning to the studio for the third album.
Nelly’s Echo is blessed with extremely talented musicians who realize they are much more than a couple of infectious songs. They understand that they can use the gifts they’ve been blessed with to bless someone else’s life or situation. They appreciate that they can be the voice for the soft spoken in a sometimes very noisy world. They recognize that they can be that medicine for the aching heart, and a trumpet for the joyous soul. Cognizant of the fact that good music is a road map in navigating the tricky journey of life, and that music inspires to do great things, it should come as no surprise that once you listen to Nelly’s Echo’s music, it will be an integral track to the soundtrack of your life!
