'The Voice' contestant Anthony Riley dies at 28
Anthony Riley, a contestant on the most recent season of The Voice, has died, according to media reports. He was 28.
Riley, a Philadelphia street performer, earned a coveted four-chair turn during his blind audition in season eight of NBC's The Voice, opting for Pharrell Williams as his coach.
Riley won his first competition in the battle rounds but voluntarily dropped out of the show midway through the season for personal reasons. He later told Philly.com that he had decided to enter a two-week rehab program for substance abuse.
An NBC rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
