He Performed for Bill Clinton!
The Illinois native grew up in Oak Lawn, Chicago where he went to Harold L. Richards High School. He says his last name truly describes who he is. Growing up, drug dealers and fights were a common sight in his neighborhood. His own dad was in and out of jail often.
Warrior’s singing talent was recognized when he was a teen. At the time, he was part of the famous gospel group, Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago. With the group, he performed all over the world and even for former president, Bill Clinton!
He and his younger brothers were living with his mother and stepdad. He didn’t have a car, which made it very difficult to travel to his various gigs. He watched tutorials online to improve his singing and all of his hard work certainly shows.
He was on The Voice
Jason Warrior is not a new face for a lot of people. In fact, a lot of people might remember him for his time on NBC’s The Voice. He tried out for The Voice back in 2014 but didn’t get called for the Blind Audition until two years later.
With a breathtaking performance of Stevie Wonder’s “Living for the City” at the season 11 Blind Auditions, he won a spot on Alicia Keys’ team. Throughout his time on the show, he survived near elimination after being stolen by other coaches.
He lost the Battle Round to Christian Cuevas, and Adam Levine swooped in to steal him onto his team. After losing to Riley Elmore in the Knockout Round, Blake Shelton stole him. However, he didn’t get enough votes in the Live Playoffs, and Coach Blake chose Courtney Harrell over him. While on The Voice, he prepared by learning 10 songs a day.
He Has a Production Company
After high school, Warrior went to Northern Illinois University on a theater scholarship but eventually dropped out. He was performing in bars around the college and back in Chicago to make some money.
Since his stint on The Voice, Warrior has been working as an assistant speech coach at Dwight D. Eisenhower High School in Illinois. Besides working with the kids in the Cardinal Speech Team, he also has his own production company called Dramatic Studios, which he started in his college dorm room.
Through his production entity, he created a 20-episode web series called The Truth, about young people going through various difficulties. You can watch the entire series on Dramatic Studios’ YouTube channel here.
