Who is Aaron Konzelman? Texas singer on 'The Voice' has his wife to thank for song that put him on Team Blake
Aaron Konzelman’s musical talent has been honed thanks to his musical partnership with his wife Amanda in their duo project The Union Revival
Aaron Konzelman may have the look of Blackbeard the Pirate, but the only thing this contestant on 'The Voice' is stealing away is people's hearts with his rendition of Duran Duran's 'Ordinary World' at the blind auditions on Season 20 of 'The Voice'.
So who exactly is Aaron Konzelman? Interestingly, Konzelman and his wife Amanda make up the singing duo 'The Union Revival'. The two lovebirds and in this case songbirds as well met in college and have been singing together ever since.
According to 'The Union Revival' website, "Their musical style draws influence from Johnny Cash, Allison Krause, Mumford and Sons, Chris Stapleton, and The Civil Wars. They weave strong storytelling with modern folk/Americana rhythms and pop/folk harmonies." The 39-year-old Konzelman hails from Waco, Texas.
They also go on to say on their website, "We love people, authenticity and telling the story of the struggles and victories that are common to all of us. We are all on this journey trying to find meaning, love, and purpose. We love finding those stories as we meet people on our journey, and share our story with them."
They continue with "14 years of writing, gigging, burning up the roads into the early morning, being rich, being broke, having plenty, and having nothing, married for 13 years and moving 10 times…to tell the stories of this crazy journey…. and we wouldn’t change a minute or a single breath of the journey to HERE. So from the bottom of our hearts, and until our stories cross paths someday, thanks for listening."
Clearly, all the musical practice with his wife and singing partner has paid off. Konzelman certainly impressed the judges and fans with his raspy voice. One fan posted on Instagram, "Great rendition of one of favorite Duran Duran songs." Another fan on Twitter said "Amazing version. I had chills while he was singing! @duranduran."
A fan tweeted, "One of my favorite songs ever. That was amazing!! Definitely rooting for this guy now." Another posted on Instagram, "Love your voice. I was hitting my imaginary button."

Konzelman finally chose to join team Blake Shelton but it looks like Konzelman in particular caused more of a battle than usual with the judges. Blake Shelton, in an attempt to woo Konzelman, said all the other judges are too "Hollywood". John Legend retorted that Blake Shelton's partner Gwen Stefani is literally the definition of a California girl.
But it looks like Blake's battling finally won him Konzelman. You can catch Aaron Konzelman's performance below. 'The Voice' airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 pm. ET/PT on NBC.
