Victor Solomon takes us to church with 'I Can Only Imagine' on The Voice USA
Things are really heating up on Team Legend as vocal powerhouse Victor Solomon storms NBC’s The Voice which follows the strongest vocalists from across the country and invites them to compete in this season's blockbuster vocal competition. He wowed the judges with his first audition singing a soulful John Legend's collaboration with Common 'Glory' which caused 3 out of 4 judges to turn around giving their approval and then it was no suprise he chose John Legend as his coach.
Gospel is Solomon's go to genre as he is a committed Christian whose faith in God is one of the most important things in his life. He has also previously released gospel music.
Solomon was the first to perform on the night giving us a powerful rendition of MercyMe's "I Can Only Imagine". With 100,000 dollars and a recording contract on the line, lets see how far Solomon goes in this competition.
Victor and his three siblings were raised by a single mom. He remembers times when they went without electricity and water, but they were a tight-knit family and always got through the difficult times together. Victor started singing in church at six years old and won his eighth-grade talent show by singing John Legend's "Ordinary People." He continued singing in school and attended North Carolina A&T State University, the country's largest historically Black university. Victor is now a senior and was voted Mister of his university. He serves on the Student Government Association Executive Board and stays busy with his Mister duties, but he continues to sing at church and in the school's gospel choir.
