Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine has been the winning coach on “The Voice” twice, but it has been a while since that happened. Does he have the type of artist on his team this year that can take it all against rival coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams?
Our brand new Gold Derby predictions center is now open, and you could win money by telling us which artist will win for this eighth season (see details below on how to enter). We also want to know which contenders from Team Adam will go home this week and which ones will move on.
Let’s take a look at his five remaining contestants:
Brian Johnson – From Cleveland, OH. Brian’s been singing since he was a kid. In high school, his high voice allowed him to perform material in choir normally reserved for the girls. Brian performed music in college, but when his father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis he had to put his dreams on hold in order to focus on supporting his family. His audition song was “Reason to Believe.”
Deanna Johnson – From Hazlehurst, GA. Deanna is no stranger to The Voice stage. Devastated after no chairs turned for her in Season 5, she returned home to Georgia and took some time off from singing. It wasn’t until her biggest supporter, her father, asked her to sing at church services that she realized how much she missed it. Her audition song was “All I Want.”
Joshua Davis – From Traverse City, MI. Joshua played in bands throughout high school, but music was mainly a hobby. He earned his bachelor’s degree in theater, and it wasn’t until he taught at a summer camp in college that he realized he wanted to work with music full time. He started a band, and after graduation they spent years playing at festivals, but once his daughter was born he took a break from touring. His audition song was “I Shall Be Released.”
Nathan Hermida – From Boston, MA. Nathan is a first-generation Filipino American who grew up singing during his family’s karaoke nights. He performs in his school choir and an a cappella group, but Nathan’s parents have their hearts set on him going to school for biology. His audition song was “Sure Thing.”
Tonya Boyd-Cannon – From Jackson, MS. A preacher’s daughter, Tonya grew up singing in church and began her professional career as a back-up signer for Jean Knight. She was living in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward with her husband and two daughters when Hurricane Katrina hit, destroying their home. Since then, Tonya has been working two jobs and volunteering in order to help pick up the pieces in her community. Her audition song was “Happy.”
