Tacoma singer and "The Voice" contestant Vicci Martinez will speak and perform at Tacoma Community College’s commencement ceremony on June 14.
Tacoma native Martinez attended TCC after graduation from Stadium High School. She had a slowly ascending musical career until 2011, when she became a finalist on the first season of the NBC talent show, propelling her into national prominence.
The singer released "Vicci," her major-label debut album in 2012. Its single, "Come Along, " featured her "Voice" coach Cee Lo Green.
Martinez served last year as the voice for TCC’s “Reach Higher” campaign.
TCC's commencement ceremony will be at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center.
