As ‘The Voice’ has only gotten more and more popular on American television, contestants have learned that to speak the language of their target audience can only benefit them when it’s time for votes to be counted. That being the case, it seems that contestants (and their coaches) are selecting songs that will appeal to Christians for their big moments on stage.
Craig Wayne Boyd, Koryn Hawthorne, Meghan Linsey and Deanne Johnson are just some of the recent performers on the show that have made this choice. The round-up below represents some of the most unforgettable moments in the history of the show, when contestants chose to showcase their abilities using Christian songs.
Just a few weeks before being announced as the winner of ‘The Voice’ Season 7, coach Blake Shelton suggested that Craig Wayne Boyd give Alan Jackson’s modern classic, “The Old Rugged Cross,” his own soulful twist. More typically known for his blue-eyed bluegrass renditions of country standbys like “I Walk the Line” and “The Whiskey Ain’t Workin’ Anymore,” Craig Wayne Boyd showed up to ‘The Voice’ semi-finals in a starched white shirt and a velvet jacket and showed his fans a new side of himself. This video has over 2.5 million views to date, so it’s safe to say: Audiences loved it.
