From ages five to 10, he posted videos online and was featured on many TV shows. He was even featured in a Michael Jackson stage production that toured the nation. In 2014, he moved to Los Angeles with his family and has had a recurring voiceover gig and also performed opposite Wesley Snipes on NBC’s “The Player.” He has taken some time to focus on school and perfecting his talents by writing and working in the studio.

The three-time Emmy Award-winning “The Voice” returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the blockbuster vocal competition show’s new season. Grammy Award-winning artist Gwen Stefani returns as a coach this season, joining megastars Alicia Keys, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and host Carson Daly.
The show’s innovative format features five stages of competition: the first begins with the blind auditions, followed by the battle rounds, the knockouts, the live playoffs and, finally, the live performance shows.
In the live playoff rounds, the Top 20 artists compete to secure a spot in the live shows. Artists perform live, and America votes to save their two favorite artists from each team. The coaches then save one remaining artist to complete their roster. The remaining contestants move on to the final phase of the competition – the live shows.
