An Eagan native got his shot at fame last week as a contestant on NBC’s “The Voice,” a reality singing competition judged by a host of celebrities.
Nicholas Mrozinski, who used the name Nicholas David, was chosen by judge Cee Lo Green after performing Ben E. King’s classic “Stand by Me.”
The St. Paul resident and Eagan native had gathered a small national following under the nickname “the feelin” prior to his television debut.
An eclectic singer-songwriter whose music incorporates everything from folk and blues to reggae and New Age, has released five CDs and performed at First Avenue and Pantages Theater in Minneapolis, among other venues. His music has been played by radio stations across the nation.
Mrozinski is a graduate of Eagan High School where he began to cultivate his vocal talents.
