Amber Carrington (born in Fort Worth, Tx on March 4, 1993) is an American country music artist who gained fame as a semi-finalist on Season 4 of NBC’s “The Voice”, where she finished in the Top 5. Carrington’s family moved to Rockwall, Texas when she was 9 years old, and it wasn’t long after that she started singing in public. Initially, she felt most comfortable singing in church, alongside her father but as her confidence grew, she sang for her peers at school, and started sharing the stage with her grandfather (aka “PawPaw”), along-time musician himself. Carrington spent the next few years singing at a variety of venues including Rodeo City Music Hall, Grapevine Opry, and Johnnie High’s Country Revue. In 2011, she won the talent contest at the Big D Opry at Gilley’s in Dallas and in 2012, she took first prize in Rockwall’s Got Talent. She was also invited to Los Angeles to sing with Katharine McPhee and Kenny G. While there, she was accompanied by music producer/performer David Foster.
Between her music, many friends, and a town she came to call her own, Carrington enjoyed her teen years and graduated from Rockwall High School in 2011. Only a few months later, breast cancer took the life of Carrington’s mother, Shonda Gaylord. After a brief time off, Carrington threw herself into her music even more.
Amber Carrington auditioned for TV talent show NBC’s “The Voice” for season 3 and then again for season 4 progressing all the way to the semi-finals. Proving her vocal versatility, while on “The Voice” Carrington performed songs from a range of artists, including Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Patsy Cline, Maroon 5 and many others. While on the show Carrington got the chance to sing along side country music’s Lady Antebellum as well as her coach Adam Levine.
