Lee Bullion, 38, of Cleveland will travel to St. Louis, Mo., on July 20 for the second round of auditions for “The Voice.”

In this audition for the popular singing competition show, Bullion will have 90 seconds to sing a song, without accompaniment, in order to move on to the next round of auditions.

Bullion said he is thinking of singing, “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts.

Bullion is originally from Grenada but has lived and worked in Cleveland for the past year as a phlebotomist doing lab work at the Cleveland Medical Clinic.

Bullion, who is a husband and father of four, started singing when he was just seven-years-old and at eight he won Best Male Vocal Solo for the Church of God Peace Cadet Talent.

Since then, Bullion has led worship for various churches, sang on the television show Maranatha Live, and has sang the National Anthem for the Washington Nationals, Delta State and The University of Mississippi.

He is on call to sing the National Anthem for the Baltimore Orioles.

For the first round of the audition process, Bullion sent in a video of himself singing two songs, “She’s My Kind of Rain” by Tim McGraw and “Come As You Are,” which Bullion wrote himself.

Bullion’s video of singing “She’s My Kind of Rain” can be found on YouTube under “she’s my kind of rain 2.”

If he makes it through the second round of auditions and is called back for the third round, he will then sing before the celebrity coaches.

To make it onto the show, one of the celebrity coaches, who listen with their backs facing the singers, must turn around to face Bullion.

If a celebrity turns to face Bullion, then that celebrity will become his vocal coach for the season and Bullion will compete against the other singers on the show.

If more than one celebrity turns to face Bullion, then he will get to choose which person he would like to be his coach.

Bullion said he hopes that, if he makes it onto the show, his coach will be Blake Shelton, because he’s had to fight so hard for his career, or Adam Levine.

The winner of The Voice will be determined by the viewers, who vote through telephone, SMS text message, the internet and iTunes purchases of the artists’ performance, and will receive the grand prize of a record deal with Universal Music Group and $100,000.
