Who is Bodie from 'The Voice' Season 22?

Bodie is a 29-year-old musician from Ladera Ranch, California. Unlike many of his peers on 'The Voice', Bodie already has tasted some level of success in the music industry. The California native collaborated with rapper Gnash, and released several singles, as well as two EPs. Two of his songs have gotten over 1.3 million streams on Spotify! Bodie is married to a photographer named Royale, and the couple have three children together. Bodie suffers from Alopecia and revealed in a video that he uses music to not only raise awareness about the autoimmune disease but also to express himself. 

For his blind auditions performance on 'The Voice', the 29-year-old chose The Fray's 'You Found Me'. Armed with a guitar and velvety soft vocals, Bodie put his own spin to the song. He barely finished his first note when Blake Selton decided to turn his chair. Soon John Legend, Gwen Stefani, and finally Camile Cabello turned their chairs for him. The coaches couldn't stop raving about his four-chair turn performance. Each of the coaches tried to woo Bodie into joining their teams by pitching how they could help him with his journey on the show. Considering his bleak luck this season, Blake pulled out all stops to get Bodie to join his team. From praising the young singer for his unique and memorable voice, style, and looks, to using his fellow coach John's trick of constantly reminding him that he was the first coach to turn his chair, Blake did everything within his power to woo Bodie. 


It looks like Blake's trick worked as Bodie decided to join Team Blake. Just like Blake, fans too recognized the California native's immense talent and have already begun hailing him as the winner of the season. Svereal fans took to the show's YouTube clip of his performance to predict that he would win the season. A fan commented, "His voice is so well seasoned and he's found his sound. Definitely a finalist, hopefully, the winner." "This is EXQUISITE!!! He may be the winner; there’s so much talent this season," wrote a fan. "WOW! That voice is amazing!!! I wonder what else it can do?! He’s a winner no matter what!" echoed a fan.

Another fan added, "This is the best blind audition this season. Pitch perfect." "Truly one of the best blind auditions so far this season! I'm so happy that Blake was smart enough to turn around before John, and be first!" observed a fan. "How has he not made it already??? One of the best auditions I have seen," declared a fan.

We can't wait to watch Bodie's journey on 'The Voice'.

'The Voice' Season 22 airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8/7c on NBC.
