"Hey, did you hear about that dude Ray Boudreaux from Lafayette that was on The Voice last night?" That was the question a lot of folks were asking around office water coolers and campus lunch tables today as the buzz in Acadiana continues to build over a man who, until last night, had been performing at various venues around town as a virtual unknown.

A lot of south Louisiana televisions were surrounded by members of the Who Dat Nation Monday night, primed and ready to watch their New Orleans Saints take on the Miami Dolphins in a battle of two unbeaten teams. Little did we know that Lafayette's own Ray Boudreaux would put our region on the national stage with his stellar blind audition for NBCs "The Voice" forty minutes before Drew Brees & Co. took the field.

Immediately, people rushed to Google to ask, "Who is Ray Boudreaux?" After all, this was someone from Lafayette representing south Louisiana on national television! (Don't worry, we've got you covered here.)

For those who want even more insight on the 25-year-old aspiring singer from Acadiana who is following his dreams, we invited Ray (known by many as "T-Ray") into our studios for his first one-on-one interview after his blind audition last night (Sept 30) on The Voice.

He sat with Digital and told us what made him try out, why he hopes this experience may lead to bigger opportunities and the first thing that came to mind when Blake Shelton's chair turned around during his audition.

In case you missed his blind audition last night, check it out below. Also, support Ray by downloading his performance of Bill Withers 'Use Me' from iTunes now!

We're rooting for Ray and wishing him the best of luck as he proudly represents Lafayette on the big stage!
