A singer-songwriter in New Jersey is back to making music, after setting her music career aside during the pandemic to return to her job as a nurse.
Felicia Temple, a former contestant on “The Voice,” had her tour interrupted last year. Temple came home to New Jersey to work at the COVID-10 intensive care unit at Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck.
"In the beginning it was terrible. I had never seen anything like that in my life. And I hope I never see anything like it again," she said. "We were in war mode pretty much. So, to come back to see this, it was really shocking."
She is still working as a nurse but is looking to the future in music with a new song. Temple says she believes being a nurse has helped her become a better performer.
"You've got to be confident and walk into a room and speak to any and every one, and convince them that you know what you're doing and that you're going to take good care of them. And when you are on stage ...that confidence you have to exude ... It's the same thing in nursing," she said.
Temple's EP "Bedroom Chronicles Part Two" will come out later this month.
