Help Newtown resident Bruce Coviello get on ‘The Voice’


Vocalist and music teacher Bruce Coviello is in the running for a chance to audition for NBC’s “The Voice.”

And he needs your help to get it.

Coviello, of Newtown, is competing in Extra’s “The Voice Bootcamp Experience!” The winner gets a makeover by “The Voice” stylists, a lesson with a vocal coach from “The Voice” and a one-on-one audition with the show’s casting director.

But first, he ‘ll need to score enough viewer votes AND ace his audition with Mario Lopez and Maria Menounos. The “Extra” hosts get to decide who goes on to the “The Voice” bootcamp.

To vote for Coviello (pictured above, second from left), go online.

Music is already a big part of Coviello’s life: he leads his own band, The Bruce Coviello Group, and he has been teaching music in Connecticut schools for 36 years.
