Rob Thomas of Bedford Joins Cast of 'The Voice'

The news appeared in US Weekly on Tuesday.

Singer songwriter Rob Thomas of Bedford will be mentoring undiscovered talent on NBC's "The Voice," US Weekly reports.

If you're not familiar with the show, singers from across the nation compete for the chance at winning a recording contract. Thomas joins CeeLo Green's team and will offer contestants advice on their live performances.

"I'm really excited to work with CeeLo and love the idea that I may be in the room with a future superstar that the world has yet to discover," the Grammy-award winning singer told Us.

Other mentors include Mary J. Blige and Michael Buble.

Thomas has recorded almost 20 top ten singles as a solo recording artist and frontman for the band Matchbox Twenty. He and his wife, Marisol, moved to Briarcliff Manor before settling in Bedford, according to Westchester Magazine, because, he told the magazine in a 2011 interview, Bedford felt "unpretentious."

"With all the money here, everybody is in jeans and boots," he said then.

Thomas and his wife, Marisol also established the Sidewalk Angels foundation to provide grassroots groups including no-kill animal shelters and animal rescue centers needed funds, according to its Facebook page. In addition, the charity supports the fight against homelessness and childhood health.

Thomas is currently preparing for the September release of his newest album with Matchbox Twenty, North.
