During Night 2 of “The Voice” Season 13 battle rounds, Davon Fleming and Maharasyi of Team Jennifer Hudson performed Whitney Houston‘s “I’m Your Baby Tonight.” Adam Levine thought that Fleming’s voice was “a force of nature,” Blake Shelton raved that Maharasyi matched Fleming’s every note, while Miley Cyrus praised both their combined “entertainment factor.” But what did their coach Hudson think? Watch Davon Fleming and Maharasyi battle it out in “The Voice” video above.
Hudson sized up her teammates by declaring, “First of all Maharasyi, you look like a star, sweetheart. You look so beautiful. You sounded amazing. Just your whole growth, everything you did, I’m extremely proud.” Moving over Fleming, Hudson noted, “Davon, you just exuded joy of singing, and your love for Whitney shines through. This is making my job harder to decide. Y’all did well. You shut it down and I’m very proud.”
When it was time to pick the winner of this battle round, JHud ultimately announced, “I gotta go with Davon.” That meant Fleming moved on to the next round of “The Voice” Season 13 while Maharasyi had to say goodbye to the competition.
Fleming is 30 years old and currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland. Here is his official NBC bio: “Davon grew up in a rough neighborhood, experienced a lot of poverty and witnessed hustling on the streets, but he was never caught on the wrong side of the law. Instead, he was known as the singer in his neighborhood. Davon knew he wanted to sing at three years old after watching his mother perform in the church choir. Being a singer was always his mom’s dream before she had kids, but she had to give up that dream in order to support her family. Currently, Davon works as a worship leader and assists with the musical arrangements for the church choir performances.”
Maharasyi is 17 years old and currently lives in Dublin, California. Her official NBC bio states: “Noah spends most of his time writing and recording music in a studio he built himself in his family’s backyard shed. He got his start in music in the most heartbreaking way – when Noah was seven years old, his 19-year-old sister, Stevie, lost her fight with brain cancer. His sister was his biggest inspiration. Despite his sadness, he decided to sing at her funeral. His performance shocked everyone, including his parents, who had no idea he had a voice. Noah recently produced and released an EP.”
