About the Artist, Derrick Clifton
Derrick Clifton has been drawing since he was very young. While attending college, a professor encouraged him to take a ‘pick something and do it well’ approach with his art. Derrick decided to develop his style by working exclusively with charcoal. In 2005, while living in Colorado, he accepted a commission to draw something that he had always avoided, the portrait of a face. He returned to Nashville in 2006 and began drawing portraits for many clients that share his love for intensely ‘colorful’ black and white art. He has since displayed his portraits in many public galleries, including The Smithsonian Portrait Gallery, the Church Street Gallery in Murfreesboro, and Picture This Gallery in Hermitage, as well as being featured in the Nashville Art Crawl and gracing the walls of many homes and private galleries. Most recently, he has paid tribute to many of his favorite singers and musicians, with his ‘Greatest Singers’ and ‘Greatest Guitarists’ series.

About John Oates
John Oates is no stranger to success. Since the formation of his partnership in the early 70’s with Daryl Hall, Hall & Oates have gone on to record 21 albums which have sold over 80 million units making them the most successful duo in rock history. They have scored 10 number one records, over 20 top 40 hits and have toured the world for decades. Their involvement in the original “Live Aid” concert and the ground breaking “We Are The World” charity recording have further established them as legendary artists who have personally and through their music, stood the test of time. Their influence on modern pop music has been cited by numerous contemporary bands, like the Gym Class Heroes and the Killers, who have credited and acknowledged H&O’s considerable contribution to American music.

Hall & Oates to Appear on “The Voice”

Hall & Oates to Appear on the Finale of “The Voice” with Justin Bieber, Lady Antebellum, and Flo Rida

Daryl Hall and John Oates will perform their first ever #1 single, “Rich Girl,” on the season two finale of “The Voice,” Tuesday, May 8 (9-11 p.m. ET) on NBC. The stellar line-up for the program also includes Justin Bieber, Lady Antebellum and Flo Rida. Entertainment Weekly just selected the broadcast as the “Must Watch” show of the week!

“The Voice” is a vocal competition show featuring celebrity musician coaches Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. Carson Daly hosts and serves as producer, and Christina Milian serves as social media correspondent. The show’s innovative format features three stages of competition: the first begins with the blind audition, and then the competition enters into a battle phase, and finally, the live performance shows. In the end, each coach will have one star artist left ready to compete against the other teams’ finalists to be named “The Voice” – the winner will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
