RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond's TSoul stopped by the NBC12 News studios on Friday to talk about his journey competing on "The Voice."
TSoul performed Al Green's classic "Take Me To The River" and won the hearts of Adam Levine and Blake Shelton during the blind auditions. He picked Shelton to become his coach.
"I'm a country boy from Virginia and those country roots their gonna always be instilled in me," he said. "Blake has a knowledge of this show that allowed him to win five or six times now and hopefully number seven will be happening pretty soon."
TSoul is now 30 years old and headed to the battle rounds. He talked about the journey his singing career has been on since he learned to play piano at the age of 5, graduated high school in Northumberland County and was in the Virginia State University Gospel Chorale.
"That choir travels all over the world, so I was able to get the experience of a lifetime with them, but it also showed me the ins and outs of traveling on the road and having a band and a group of people," he said. "The love that's been coming in from Richmond has been amazing. I walk in the store and people walk by and say, 'Aren't you from the Voice?'"
He's headed back to Los Angeles next week. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC12.
