It takes quite a bit of confidence to audition for a massively popular show like The Voice. Even still, Asher HaVon was feeling quite unsure about his place on the show. This was even true during his audition with Set Fire to the Rain by Adele. This was the case, in part, because of a very surprising reason. Even though Asher is an amazing singer, he hadn’t sung in two years at that point. Between this, and Asher still getting used to living openly as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, he found himself in a tough spot.

“Going into the show, I was broken. I was so broke, and I was lost,” Asher says. “I was confused about what I was supposed to do, not understanding my destiny, even though for such a long time, I’ve been told, ‘You’re such a great singer.’ But when it doesn’t happen, you think, ‘Maybe I’m not. Maybe I should do something else.'”

Thankfully, Asher pushed past the voice in his head that told him he wasn’t enough. As you can imagine, he’s very grateful for that. This is true not only because Asher HaVon won The Voice but because of the bond he’s developed with his coach, Reba McEntire.
