Blake Proehl Background
Blake Proehl isn’t your everyday singer-songwriter. He worked his whole life to achieve his dream of making it to the NFL, ultimately joining the Minnesota Vikings as a wide receiver. After a devastating injury during his rookie season, though, his life in football came to a screeching halt.
Proehl isn’t stepping away from that part of his story just yet, but during the recovery period and unexpected downtime, he encountered another surprise: falling in love with music.
His musical journey began with his family, and a video of him sharing his singing voice with his grandmother for the first time unexpectedly went viral on TikTok, surprising even Proehl himself. The 26 million views, and counting, says it all. People are ready to hear more from Blake.
Now, Proehl says he’s committed to making a recovery and continuing his time in the NFL, while being equally committed to his musical journey. His pop and r&b sound has the natural likability of his predecessors. His humility and gentle spirit make it hard not to want to root for him. He just released a new track. Check it out below!
What an incredible single. His voice is absolutely beautiful. The instrumentals are beautiful and pair perfectly with his vocals. He has one of my favorite voices that I have heard in a really long time. Definitely a standout performance by a talented artist and athlete. With this single, he is proving that he has a lot of different avenues to explore and is ready to excel in all of them. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
