Todd, a father of eight whose day job is as a Mississippi pastor, is one of the favorites to win “The Voice” thanks to his enormous fan base. “If I could sound like a man singing, I would want your voice,” Kelly proclaimed about Todd’s “storyteller voice” after his latest performance. Blake raved about his family and his personality, noting, “I didn’t think I would ever see you cry.”
In his “The Voice” live blog, our recapper Denton Davidson had this to say about the performance: “Team Blake is up again, this time with Todd Tilghman hitting the stage. He’ll be singing ‘Love Me’ in honor of his children and this is a pretty genius song choice. It will cater brilliantly to his fan base and if he sings this well at all he’ll be in the finale. He does sound good singing this, but the children surrounding him in bean bags may be a bit over the top, even for the sappiest viewers. The important thing is that this song will tug at the heartstrings of America and Todd nailed the modulation.”
