THE TAKE 5 SERIES
Best known for 2018 single “Let Me Come Home,” an original holiday song, OneUp is a pop/soul musical duo. Many may recognize them from their Season 15 appearance on NBC’s The Voice, where they made history as the show’s first ever same-sex duo.
While the couple is used to the national stage, quarantine has not stopped them from staying in touch with fans: the couple has been sharing short clips of themselves dancing and spreading positive messages on their social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram. A video of them dancing and painting to Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy” has gone viral as viewers resonated with the much needed message.
