Watch ‘The Voice’ Audition That Turned Every Judge’s Chair Around
On NBC’s “The Voice,” contestants are picked before the judges see what they look like. In other words, it’s all about the music. During season seven’s blind auditions, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell Williams and Blake Shelton all turned around for a contestant who couldn’t see them, either.
In the video below, Blessing Offor, who’s blind in both eyes, sings Bill Withers’ “Just the Two of Us” and eventually ends up on Team Pharrell. We learn that Offor, 24, was born blind in one eye and later lost vision in the other after a water gun accident. His challenges have only inspired him to work hard and go after his dream of becoming a singer-songwriter.
