Is Moriah Formica still on The Voice? With a new episode airing tonight, fans have been wondering about Moriah Formica from The Voice. To learn more about the young contestant who could win it all, here’s our Moriah Formica wiki.
Who is Moriah Formica?
Moriah Formica’s age is 17 (her birthday just passed). She’s from Latham, New York and is a student at Shaker High School. According to her NBC profile, Mariah was raised on rock music and her father played ’80s metal around the house growing up. It’s what led her to playing guitar, which she taught herself how to do! At the tender age of nine, her first performance was at a graduation party, which surprised her family.
Moriah Formica Family
Not much is known about Moriah’s family, except that she has supportive parents and her brother, Gabriel. According to Times Union, it was Moriah’s brother who told Moriah’s 5th grade Latham Ridge Elementary School teacher that she could play guitar. She was described as the quiet, shy girl in the back, until one day her brother volunteered her to play “Eye of the Tiger” on the guitar. She was embarrassed but once she started, she enjoyed herself.
“And I ended up playing the guitar for the school choir show, and I just fell in love with it,” she said to Times Union. “I knew that I was supposed to be entertaining people, and I knew that I was supposed to be doing music — right then and there.”
She Joined a Music Program
At age 11, Moriah joined the Modern Day Music Program, a musical school that lets kids play music and join bands. Thanks to the program, she met Michael Sweet, the lead singer of ’80s metal band, Stryper. She not only opened for one of his shows but she also had the opportunity to sing on his recent album.
Moriah Formica’s Boyfriend
While she may not have a boyfriend, she does have a best friend! It can be lonely on the way to the top, so it’s good that Moriah has someone she can rely on and have fun with.

Moriah Formica’s Instagram
If you’re a fan and want to follow Moriah’s journey or show her some support, then her Instagram account is the best option. She has over 5,000 followers right now but that number might increase, now that she’s doing better on The Voice every week.
Moriah is currently on Team Miley and she’s ready for the Playoffs this week. She has a voice that has been compared to Pat Benatar and couldn’t believe how much faith Miley had in her, saying, “Well, this is gonna be a cliché answer,” she said, “but the whole thing is kind of surreal. And it’s just an incredible feeling, to be honest – just the fact that Miley believed in me enough to put me through, and be able to continue, is a humbling and amazing feeling. I couldn’t be happier.”
On November 24, Moriah is scheduled to sing for her hometown fans at Jupiter Hall, Crossgates Mall, Guilderland.
