Week 3 of the live shows began Monday night on “The Voice” Season 13, with gospel singer Davon Fleming representing Team Jennifer Hudson in the Top 10. Fleming took on another diva classic with former coach Christina Aguilera‘s “Hurt,” prompting Hudson to say that he represented everything “The Voice” is about. Do you think Fleming did good enough to advance to next week’s Top 8? Watch Fleming’s performance from “The Voice” 2017 live shows above.
Our writer Denton Davidson live-blogged the episode, and as he declared, “First things first, I’m digging Davon’s haircut. Wise choice. More importantly, I love his control in this performance. He’s singing a straight-forward melody, something he doesn’t always do. It’s a full-throttle performance that requires a lot of power. Davon is talented enough to transfer into falsetto if he ever feels he is hitting the top of his belting range. Overall, a solid performance.”
Back in his blind audition of the reality TV show, Fleming performed “Me & Mr Jones” and had all four coaches turn their chairs around: Hudson, Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and Blake Shelton. The next time we saw Fleming in the battle rounds, he and Maharasyi sang “I’m Your Baby Tonight” and Fleming was declared the winner by his coach Hudson. In the knockouts Fleming was paired up against Eric Lyn, with Fleming proving victorious thanks to his performance of “I Can Only Imagine.” Fleming’s rendition of “I Am Changing” in the playoffs was good enough to send him through to the live shows. He sang “Love On Top” during Top 12 week and “I Have Nothing” during Top 11 week.
Fleming is 25 years old and currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland. Here’s the 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.”
