Montgomery native secures spot on 'The Voice'
WSFA/NBC - A Montgomery Native has made her way onto season 11 of NBC's popular singing competition, The Voice.

According to NBC's website, Bowden starting singing in the ninth grade competitively for pageants.
Bowden also participated in sports like basketball and cheerleading but began to suffer from chronic back and knee pain which kept her from competing. Doctors believe the pain may be related to arthritis, which is said to be rare for someone her age.
Bowden says music has helped her cope with the pain. Charity now holds an annual charity event called 'Angels for Change', founded to benefit people with special needs.
