The community is rallying support for a local man who is trying to take his talent to the next level.
Matthew Lunsford is planning to audition for the popular reality talent competition The Voice on Jan. 23 in Memphis, Tenn.
"It's a mix of excitement and being terrified," he said.
Lunsford started singing as early as he could remember. His father was a choir director when he was born and as it was told to him, his father would harmonize with his baby sounds to train his ear. Lunsford said he is blessed to have a musical family.
