News Americas, LOS ANGELES, CA, Weds. Mar. 25, 2015: He overcame a lot of adversity to get on NBC Reality Show, The Voice, but last night his time screeched to a halt.
Bahamas-born singer Blaze Johnson, Jr. was let go from by Adam Levine in favor of nervous singer, Deana Johnson.
Johnson delivered a solid performance of ‘You Found Me’ but Levine picked the “unique sound” of Deana to move on to the live rounds of the competition.
The heavy set young man was, however, gracious in loss and said he was “thankful” and “grateful” to have made it to the knock-out rounds of the competition.
His presence on Team Adam came on the heels of Season 5 winner, Tessanne Chin of Jamaica and Anita Antoinette from last Season, who was also born in Jamaica but lives in the U.S.
Johnson was uprooted from the Bahamas at the age of eight when his parents moved to the United States to provide a better life for their son. He played football in high school and was offered a SCHOLARSHIP , but he turned it down to pursue music. His mom told him that he was blessed with a special gift and needed to share it with the world.
