While at his daughter’s dance recital, Trace noticed one performer in particular: Maureen Maltez. Apparently her voice just blew him away. Trace said:
She was such a good singer and she just sang — one of those kinds of people when she gets on stage to sing, she doesn’t hold anything back.
He was so impressed that he actually approached her and gave her compliment, which we all can be sure she’ll never forget. But it goes on from there. Trace’s duet with Colbie Caillat was set to release and he needed someone to take her place during some television performances. Well, he just couldn’t forget about 23-year-old Maureen, so he went to her school to try and hunt her down.
I said, ‘You, come here and she walks over and I hand her the CD and I said, ‘This is a song I recorded and I want you to learn this harmony part on here. I want you to learn this, and I’m going to come back down here tomorrow with a piano player and we’re going to sing it together.’ I said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry. Do you want to do this?’ She said, ‘Absolutely.’
And the rest is history. They both went on to perform on The Today Show, Fox And Friends, and more. Check out their performance at The Hard Rock Cafe in New York below.
