Of the six artists who sang on Tuesday’s episode of “The Voice,” only one had the support of just one coach: Malik Davage. While he had the crowd hopping with his version of Miguel’s 2011 hip-hop hit “Sure Thing,” only Adam Levine turned (watch above). Thus, this rising star ended up on his team. Will he be the one to win the show for Levine for the first time since season nine?
The Maroon 5 star had sat out the fight over the first act of the evening: Johnny Gates who delivered a rousing rendition of Rod Stewart’s 1971 hit “Maggie May.” However, he was impressed by the way in which Davage connected with the lyrics of the song. While his rival coaches Alicia Keys and Blake Shelton looked liked they too would hit their buttons, in the end they opted not to, leaving Levine as the only coach to turn.
As per his official NBC bio: Malik grew up in a rough area of Washington D.C., but had the encouragement of his brother, classmates and teachers at school to pursue singing. He was named All-City Honors chorus in middle school. He was raised by a hardworking, single mother whom he has a new appreciation for after the birth of his daughter, Paris.
