Cee Lo Green of NBC's The Voice will manage second place finisher and Clearwater native Juliet Simms

julietsimms-wildchild.gifJuliet Simms, the Clearwater native who earned second place in last spring's cycle of NBC's singing competition The Voice, will be co-managed by her coach on the show, R&B /rap/pop star Cee Lo Green.

Simms, 26, will release her first post-voice single, Wild Child, on iTunes Dec. 11; her album is expected to drop in spring 2013.   

She came within a hair of winning The Voice in May, only to land in second place behind Jermaine Paul, a former backup singer for Alicia Keys.

But Simms, who was a favorite to win throughout the show, struggled with a cold and hit the stage having never rehearsed the songs she had to sing in the show's final performances.

Despite earning a deal with Sony as a teenager, leading her area band Automatic Loveletter through three record labels and multiple appearances on the Warped Tour, Simms was below-the-radar enough to compete on NBC's show.

See a clip of Green describing why he took on co-managing Simms in the clip below.
