'The Voice' season 17: 14-year-old Preston Howell stuns coaches with stunning rendition of 'Dream a Little Dream'
Standing out amongst the singers on Tuesday night with a voice as smooth as Frank Sinatra was Preston Howell.
As the Blind Auditions continue on 'The Voice' season 17, auditioning for the judges on Tuesday night was Preston Howell, a 14-year-old whose voice left the coaches and audience stunned.
On Tuesday night when 'The Voice' season 17 returned for episode 4, the youngsters ruled the Blind Auditions with their powerful performances. Standing out amongst them with a voice as smooth as Frank Sinatra was Preston Howell. Performing his rendition of 'Dream a Little Dream' the Miami native left all four coaches in awe.
No matter how high the range a powerful singer might have, there's something about jazz that gets everyone hooked. Being just 14-years-old and having a voice like he does, Preston made a bold and right move with his song choice.
In no time Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson pressed their buttons and turned their chair for the singer only to be shocked to see that he is quite young. Following suit was Gwen Stefani and John Legend who also turned their chairs for Preston.
Gwen was shocked to know that he was just 14, she even performed one of her songs for him, hoping he would pick her. While the coaches all gave their best pitch, Preston, in the end, decided to go with John Legend as his coach, making a perfect choice. Looks like John is in for another win this season after snatching the best singers to audition this week to his team.
After his performance, fans took to Twitter and shared their love for the singer and how he made the right choice in choosing John as his coach. "There’s a lot of diverse talent this season on #TheVoice, but Preston Howell is something special. No question @johnlegend scored a potential winner on his team. @NBCTheVoice," a fan on Twitter wrote.
Adding to that another said, "Sweet little ladies’ man and a cappella king @prestonchowell!! His range is amazing— and to sing like that at 14 years old?? Incredible. So proud of you, Preston! You’re a LEGEND! (in both ways :) #VoiceBlinds #TheVoice."
"Holy cow Preston is 14?? I’d honestly listen to his album TODAY. #TheVoice #TeamJohn," a shocked fan wrote on Twitter. While another said, "4 chairs for Preston! What? He's 14. So cute!! What a voice! #TheVoice."
