NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Shawn "Big Sexy" Smith, the newest Utica celebrity, got some support Monday night by some local kids and parents at the Kids Fun Zone in New Hartford.

Free pizza and drinks were served and kids got to enjoy the playground and lazer tag for free, as fans  watched and waited for Shawn's big appearance.

Robert Hickey, the owner, said he's a supporter of The Voice, " I want to give back to the kids and community and hopefully get some repeat business."

Shawn did not appear on Monday night's show but will be on Tuesday night's, when the battle rounds wrap up.
