Former The Voice contestant Angie Johnson, 32, went from Air Force tech sergeant to stardom after a video of her performing for troops in the Middle East was posted on YouTube. “I just want to make records to be able to support my family,” she says. “Any other accolades would be icing on the cake.”

Johnson, who will sing the national anthem at this weekend’s Cheez-It 355 NASCAR race in Watkins Glen, N.Y., credits her “Kentuckanese” heritage (dad’s from Kentucky; mom’s from Japan) for her military and musical success. “I can go with the flow. I adapt to different situations.” And, she adds, “I can eat a lot of really weird foods.”
