TSoul, ladies and gentleman!
Regardless of the results of NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice, TSoul will certainly have a successful career. The opaquely soul singer oozes talent and charisma, with just enough artistic ingenuity to set himself apart from the pack.
Part Stevie Wonder, part Al Green, TSoul’s version of “Take Me To The River” is chockfull of challenging vocal runs and controlled soulful delivery. Coach Alicia Keys, not one to shy away from melisma herself, is visibly blown away by the expert performance. Though surprisingly, she doesn’t turn her chair.
Despite a recommendation from his would-be-first-choice Keys to join Levine’s team, TSoul shocked everyone by aligning himself with country crooner Shelton.
