Last night on “The Voice,” a new champion was named. This year’s winner– marking the first win for Team Alicia Keys– is soulful singer Chris Blue.
The 26-year-old Knoxville native wowed judges with his controlled vocal runs and impressive falsetto, so who better for him to sing with on the finale than superstar singer Usher?
Each of the finalists were paired up with an accomplished musician for a final performance, and Chris and Usher were a perfect match!
The two not only have similar styles, their voices are actually similar, making for a seamless blend.
But their performance was more than just musically impressive. The message was touching, powerful, and incredibly timely in light of recent tragedies across the world.
Chris and Usher decided to sing “Everybody Hurts” by REM. Their performance was dedicated to victims of the Manchester bombing.
“If you think you’ve had too much of this life, hang on,” sings Chris.
“You’re not alone,” adds Usher.
The message is one we truly all need to hear.
Watch the incredible finale performance below, and share.
