‘The Voice’ Runner-Up Dia Frampton to Join Blake Shelton on Tour
Dia Frampton, the runner-up on the first season of 'The Voice' and who wowed judges and viewers with her rendition of Kanye West's 'Heartless,' has popped up on our radar again, thankfully. The sweet singer is continuing her professional relationship with her coach, country music star Blake Shelton. The singer will tour this winter, opening for Shelton and tourmate Justin Moore for 27 shows.
Shelton was not kidding when he said that Frampton became like part of his family through their journey on 'The Voice' and that he would continue to work with her beyond the show. Big ups to the singer for making good on his word and for continuing to foster Dia and take her under his wing. She was thisclose to the big win and we knew we'd be hearing more from her; she's too talented!
The 'Well Lit & Amplified Tour 2012' is set to kick off in January in Toledo, Ohio, and will run through March in Las Vegas. It's scheduled to hit 27 cities in that time frame. Exact dates and venues have yet to be confirmed. However, VIP tour packages will be available for purchase here.
While Dia is not a country singer by any means, we know she can handle herself in front of country crowds who will likely embrace her because she is so good and because she is so tight with Shelton!
Let's hope Dia and Blake duet while on the tour! It would be amazing to hear them sing together again. Fans would love it!
