Anthony Riley, a former contestant on the most recent season of NBC’s The Voice, was found dead in his apartment on Friday. He was 28.
He was found dead in the basement of the apartment where he was staying and authorities believe that his death was a suicide.
Riley was a popular street performer from Philadelphia who competed on season 8 of The Voice. The singer gained national fame during his blind audition when all four judges turned their chairs around unanimously accepting him onto the show. He was a part of Team Pharrell but left shortly after the first battle round to get his substance abuse issues under control. After leaving the show Riley completed rehab and began working on an album.
