She won't be competing, but Greenville native Christie Dashiell will have another chance to showcase her musical talents on national television.

Her singing group Afro Blue was eliminated from the NBC show "The Sing Off" last week. However, Dashiell's parents say the producers have invited Afro Blue to perform during tonight's live season finale with singing legend, Smokey Robinson.

"This has been a great opportunity and a wonderful learning experience for them all and will open some doors as they pursue their musical careers," Rhonda and Carroll Dashiell wrote in an email to WITN's Heather King.

The Dashiells say Afro Blue will also tape a performance for a Christmas special that will air on NBC.

Afro Blue made it to the final four in the competition, which started with 16 singing groups.

Eventually they moved into the final four and will compete again next Monday where the audience will vote on which groups will advance.
