YUKON, Okla. - An Oklahoma singer-songwriter wants to prove you can fulfill your dreams no matter your age.
"I'm anxious to let the world see who I am, and see what I sound like, and hope they accept me," Brice Davis said.
Davis is headed to Atlanta next week for a private audition on "The Voice."
His passion for music began after watching Elvis Presley perform on television.
"As soon as I saw him come out, and everybody applauded for him because they enjoyed it, that really inspired me,” Davis said.
A third-grade talent show earned him some early success in front of an audience.
"I used to get up in front of the kids at lunch, I would sing 'Hound Dog.'"
In the past, he had a steady singing gig at a theme park in San Antonio and once signed with Warner Brothers.
At 42-years-old, he says he's finally ready to make music his priority.
"I was doing heat and air and working just a 40 hour week, and realized that's not who I am," Davis said.
Now, he plays in front of his peers at local bars and events.
"When he sings, it's like you're the only person and he's singing to you. And then you realize there's more people in the audience, and you turn around and look, and they have the same look on their face," said J.R. Palacios.
It is the four judges of "The Voice" who will decide if he makes it onto the show.
"I'm very excited about representing Oklahoma. I've got big shoes to fill,” Davis said
Season 8 of the Voice airs Feb. 23 on NBC.
