Before the show, Dia was previously the lead singer of the band Meg & Dia which featured her older sister Meg Frampton.
The Voice USAEdit
Frampton, despite being scared, impressed at her blind audition with her take on the song "Bubbly" by Colbie Caillat. Out of the two coaches - Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green - who turned around for her, she chose Shelton as her mentor.
Frampton wowed the public with her sweet vocals on such songs like "Losing My Religon" by R.E.M. and "Heartless" by Kanye West. Despite all that and being a fan favorite, she finished second to Javier Colon on June 29, 2011.
As of July 7, 2011, all of the songs Dia performed on The Voice have sold 480,000+ downloads.
Post The VoiceEditDespite finishing second, Frampton's first single, "Inventing Shadows", which she performed on the show, debuted at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her debut solo album, Red, was released on December 6, 2011. She has toured extensively since then even opening for her coach Blake Shelton on his headlining tour in 2012. One of Dia's songs off of Red, "Walk Away", was featured in a Kia car commercial during season 3 of The Voice.
