R&B singer-songwriter Tje Austin announced on Facebook that his song “I Can’t Breathe” is a John Lennon Songwriting Contest Finalist Winner (session II) in the R&B category.
You may remember Tje from his appearance on the very first season of The Voice. A member of Team Cee Lo, he was eliminated when he went head-to-head with fellow Austinite Nakia.
In his Facebook post, he also shared that fellow Austin artists The Watters placed in their category as well. The husband and wife duo, turned jazz quartet, turned seven piece Americana soul band took honors in the Rock category!
Tje and Nakia aren’t the only Austin musicians to appear on reality TV.
