Sharon Mathai is a New York-born Indian-American singer from Dallas, Texas. She was one of the contestants on the second season of the NBC show, The Voice (2012). With her family’s history in medicine, she was on the fast track to medical school when she decided to give it up for a career in music. Her parents, originating from Kerala, India, were hesitant at first, but they quickly changed their tune when three Voice judges turned their chairs to compete for Mathai. Impressing the judges with Adele's Rumour Has It, she happily joined Team Adam Levine.
