Vicci Martinez to speak at TCC 2014 Commencement

Vicci Martinez will speak at Tacoma Community College’s 2014 Commencement ceremony Saturday, June 14 at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center. A Tacoma native, Martinez attended TCC. She stepped out of her comfort zone to begin her career as a singer, appearing on Season One of The Voice. This opened several doors for her, including Public Records, where she made her debut album.
From there, Martinez worked with some of the best musical professionals in the business and performed her new songs on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She and her manager traveled to any radio station, venue, and TV station willing to promote her music. Finally, KS95 in Minneapolis played Martinez’s songs, moving her up the charts. The music video for her song “Come Along,” set in Seattle, earned over 1 million views on YouTube and sold over 250,000 singles.
Despite going worldwide, Martinez maintains a strong connection to the Tacoma community and last year served as the voice for TCC’s “Reach Higher” campaign. Martinez will give a speech and perform her music at the TCC 2014 commencement ceremony.
