The season seven premiere of ‘The Voice,’ Sept. 23 was full of so many talented singers but Luke blew them all away with his performance of ‘How Strong My Love Is.’ It was only the first night of the blind auditions, so you never know who could steal the spotlight, but for now Luke is reigning supreme.
Luke Wade is name you need to know. This 31-year-old, Texas native, is so incredibly talented. I was blown away when he took the stage as the first blind audition of the night and I had no idea that he would set the bar so high. This is a guy that is bound to make it to the finals, and I’ll explain why.
‘The Voice’ Season 7: Luke Wade Will Win
Luke isn’t just a guy with an amazing voice, he sings with passion. He explained before he performed that life has not been easy for him. Luke got emotional when he explained that a friend of his had accidentally shot him in the eye, causing him to go blind in that eye. That now explains his signature look, two different colored eyes, which set him even more apart in the competition, in the best possible way.
Luke isn’t someone who is just giving it a go at singing, he told the judges that he has been traveling around with his band, in a van for the past 10 years! This is a guy that has worked so hard for this and I couldn’t be more thrilled to put my stamp of approval on Luke.
He got every single judge, Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton to turn around, now that’s pretty awesome.
There were some other pretty great singers too. One being ElyJuh, who sang Beyonce’s “XO,” and he started to cry!
The only contender that I think could give Luke a run for his money is, James David Carter. He sang, “Nobody Knows It But Me,” and every judge turned around too. He was more country than Luke, but even Blake said it was quite possibly the best country performance ever.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Luke will win season 7?
