NBC's hit music competition show “The Voice,” in conjunction with REPUBLIC RECORDS, reached a milestone of 20 million ITUNES music downloads Monday night, dating back to its first season (iTunes.com/TheVoice) just three and a half years ago.
In reaching this remarkable achievement of 20 million downloads, fans of the EMMY AWARD-winning musical competition series have clearly embraced the series as a vital showcase for outstanding talent. The show’s eclectic performances range from original material to staples of country, pop and rock, among other musical genres.
“All of us at REPUBLIC RECORDS are thrilled to be part of this major milestone on ‘The Voice.’ An achievement like this is only possible through the hard work, commitment and collaboration from everyone including NBC, ITUNES, MARK BURNETT and REPUBLIC RECORDS. We are so happy to be a part of ‘The Voice,’” said REPUBLIC RECORDS GM West Coast/EVP TOM MACKAY.
“The Voice,” currently in its seventh season, launched on NBC in APRIL 2011 and is both a ratings force and cultural phenomenon in mining undiscovered talent. Artists work closely with both key advisers and their superstar coaches.
The show’s innovative format features five stages of competition: the first begins with Blind Auditions, then Battle Rounds, Knockouts, Live Playoffs and finally, Live Performance Shows.
