Sharon Corr leaves 'The Voice'
Dundalk singer Sharon Corr won't be appearing in the next series of The Voice as she will be touring to promote her new album 'The Same Sun'.
Sharon, who was a judge for the the past two series of the popular music show, announced on her website last week that she won't be available for recording of the new series as it clashes with dates on her world tour.
'All good things come to an end,' she told fans. 'I have absolutely loved being a coach on The Voice of Ireland. The first two seasons were quite the roller coaster ride – we took it from concept stage to the number one television program in the country and I could not be more proud.'
She also revealed that she is 'very excited' to be releasing her new album.
