Chris Blue just gets better and better on The Voice
Chris was the last person to land a spot on season 12 of The Voice. At the time of his audition, Alicia Keys was the only coach with a spot left, and she excitedly pressed her button to add him to her team. The R&B singer stayed loyal to Chris through the Battle Round — she chose him over RJ Collins — and Knockout Round, where she picked him as the winner over Quizz Swanigan. In the Live Playoffs, Chris impressed America as much as he impressed his coach, and was voted through to the Top 12.
Chris Blue has stunned audiences and judges alike with his cover versions of classic songs like Smoky Robinsons “Tracks of My Tears”, which he sung at the Blind Auditions, and Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”. His performance of ‘Love on the Brain’ during the April 17 episode of ‘The Voice,’ easily got him voted through to the Top 12
A great career beckons for Chris Blue
From the moment he first stepped on the stage at the Blind Auditions of The Voice and sang Smoky Robinson’s “Tracks of My Tears”, an audacious choice for a normal vocalist, it was obvious that this young man was a class act.
