'The Voice' Season 18: Todd Tilghman cries as he sings Collin Raye's 'Love, Me' for his family and church
Blake stated he loved seeing Todd get so emotional during his performance as the contestant was clearly moved to tears by his own song choice
Team Blake Shelton's Todd Tilghman took everyone back to church with his take on Collin Raye's 'Love, Me'.
Blake, who earlier crashed Todd's Zoom church session, calls him an 'All-American dad', saying America connects with him because he is joy personified and talented beyond belief as the father of eight joked about his 'feral kids'.
Todd also added that he started singing in church, so it's also natural that he would bring it full circle during Fan Week.
Some of his biggest fans, the Homan Family from Alabaster, rang in his performance with an adorable dance right before Todd launched into a stunning performance of Collin Raye's song, surrounded with his children and images of his family over the years.
"Todd Tilghman has got that country voice. #TheVoice," tweeted one fan, while another stated, "@todd_tilghman's performance might be the wonderful highlight of my year. And the visuals??? #TheVoice." One fan shared, "This is a great performance for todd tilghman tonight, He is amazing this week #TheVoice."
"Ok the fact that his children are there with him & the blackboard with #TheVoice WAS MORE THAN ENOUGH & NOW PHOTOS AS WELL OH NO MY HEART @NBCTheVoice @todd_tilghman @blakeshelton," said one fan, while another shared, "I’m not #Cryin You are LOL #HappyTears."
Some were extremely pleased with Todd's song choice, tweeting, "Loved that you did Colin Raye's song... love that song."
Viewers and fans alike are predicting Todd will win the show, stating, "I can't imagine Todd not making the Finals."
One fan asked, "How can Todd lose?? This week, he's singing from the Bible study room to his Sunday School students #TheVoice," and another stated, "@todd_tilghman!! #HitMeInTheFeels Man! You just get better and better!! YOU! are why I watch #TheVoice #2020Winner."
Kelly Clarkson revealed that she would want Todd's voice if she were a man, while Blake shared that his favorite part of the performance was Todd's little girl fast asleep and sucking her thumb as her father performed. Blake also stated he loved seeing Todd get so emotional during his performance as the contestant was clearly moved to tears by his own song choice.
