Last night when Rose Short sang ‘Maybe I’m Amazed‘ by Paul McCartney, we were all left amazed by her singing prowess. She has proven time and time again that she is here to win it and we think she might have a chance. From being a corrections officer at the male maximum security prison to being in the top 11 of The Voice, it’s about time we get to know her better…
Rose Short was a musical child
Rose started singing when she was 5 years old in Germany, where her father was stationed with the military. Growing up, she often performed at community events on the base. Once her family moved to Texas, she became a part of theater and choir. Her family eventually moved to Texas, where she became involved in choir and theater.

She was a corrections officer at a male maximum security prison
Before auditioning for The Voice, Rose had bills to pay she became a corrections officer at a male maximum security prison at Alfred D. Hughes Unit prison in Gatesville. Yeah, you heard that right and she did it for 8 years.
“Everything has to be inspected, you’ve got to take your shoes off, they got go through your bags, you have a sandwich, they have to open up the sandwich… In the prison you can have something from fraud all the way until murder and I’ve been in situations where we had the radio for help and I had someone put the hit out on me…”Rose Short, The Voice.
Rose Short previously auditioned for American Idol
And she also performed Aretha Franklin’s classic “Ain’t No Way on Showtime at the Apollo’s amateur night. Unfortunately she never made a splash she deserved in either but if we go by fan speculation and Kelly Clarkson, American Idol winner and judge of The Voice,
“You should be in the finale. You could win this show, you’re that great.”Kelly Clarkson on Rose Short.
Chief Sports Grill is team Rose
Before The Voice, Rose used to perform at Chief’s Sports Grill in Killeen for years. Recently, the bar has been hosting watch parties to support her on The Voice, posting on Facebook,
“Let’s support our own as she showcases her amazing voice on the national stage. Be at Chief’s on Monday for the live head to head competition and then again on Tuesday for the live results show. We’ve already got our Team Rose signs ready! Hope to see you all there as we cheer on and vote for this incredible young woman.”Chief’s Sports Bar, Killeen.
