We have details about Chris Blue from The Voice, right here.
Chris Blue’s Wiki
The 26-year-old singer is from Knoxville, Tennessee and is the youngest of the seven children, who spent his childhood watching his older siblings perform. Chris’ family is heavily involved music, so it comes as no surprise that he sings very well. While growing up, Chris began playing gigs in his family gospel band with his siblings (two sister and four brothers) at the age of just three. His mother, Janice Blue Williams said, “He was designed to do this; In my beauty salon he would get my shampoo capes and hairbrush and combs and sing to my clients and they would give him a dollar, and I thought this child was born with courageous and boldness.”
According to Chris, “I was always the little Michael Jackson on the side, just wanting to be up there with them, but I was just too little.” When Chris turned three, he got the chance to shine. During an interview, he proudly said, “It was a song called ‘Doctor Jesus Said’ and we get to this one part where like I’d bend down and do this high ‘for youuuu’ and the church went crazy and I guess their response told my mom this kid’s got something.”
Chris Blue’s fiancée Stephanie, who has battled cancer, had so much willpower and strength that it gave him the courage to audition for The Voice.
He and His Brothers are in a Band Called the Blue Brothers
Since that shining moment in church, Chris Blue and his brothers formed their own band called the Blue Brothers, and continued to perform at events like birthday parties and sporting events, and they even appeared on national TV when they were featured on BET! Before his family moved to Knoxville, they lived in a small town in Florida. Currently, Chris is a worship leader at Cokesbury Church and he firmly believes that it is because of God that he got the chance to come on The Voice. “Faith is not only necessary, for me in this journey, it is essential,” he said. “Without God, without Christ it wouldn’t be possible, I would not have the voice to sing if it hadn’t been for him.”
His Journey on The Voice
When Chris first appeared on The Voice, he got Alicia Keys to turn her chair around with his incredible range. After his The Voice performance, Chris did a little celebratory dance and Alicia joined in! Chris’ soulful and deep voice did not fail to entice the judges and the audience, as he sang “The Tracks of My Tears” by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. His soulful and profound voice earned him the last spot on Team Alicia, who was more than happy to acquire Chris to her team. When she asked about where he learned his vocals, Chris said, “God, my mama, and my family. A little bit of Adam, too. Just a little bit though.” Keys mentioned that she was looking for a particular male voice to complete her team saying, “Someone who was a little bluesy and soulful. And boom!”
Chris Blue’s mother and fiancée, Stephanie were supporting him during his Blind Audition and were invited on to the stage, where he shared the heartwarming story of Stephanie’s battle with bone marrow cancer, which nearly took her life. “While she was in her operation, she flat-lined, and I begged God to bring her back, and He did. And when He did, I said ‘I’m not letting you go again,’ so I proposed,” Chris revealed.
