The viewers of ‘The Voice’ Season 20 are currently enjoying the blind auditions and with four episodes down, we have already seen a lot of drama among the judges and we are not complaining at all. Contestants namely Kenzie Wheeler, Victor Solomon, Avery Roberson, Christine Cain and Gihanna Zoe among a few others have successfully cleared their blind auditions.
Now, the viewers will soon get to see Julian Awari who has a very intriguing background. The 36-year-old crooner will be auditioning in the blinds with an intention to impress the judges namely Blake Shelton, Nick Jonas, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.
Who is Julian Awari?
The Virginia-based singer is an Air Force veteran. He was formerly a full-time youth pastor for a church in Warrenton and Miami. And guess what, if you look at his pictures, it is very clear how big a fitness freak he is. Apart from being a singer, Julian Awari is also a bodypainting fitness model for Jan Tana.
Awari’s Instagram bio tells us that he is a single father of two kids. His bio states, “Jan Tana Fitness Model. Air Force Veteran. Proud single father of 2.” His social media profile also spills the beans on his father who was in jail earlier. Awari was 21 years old when he met his real father. He had later introduced his two children to their real grandfather.
Does he know Pharrell Williams?
According to the website Reality TV, Awari had recorded a demo way back in 2003 and apparently, it opened doors to new opportunities as the demo put him in front of Pharrell Williams studio at that time. And, thanks to that, he even got an opportunity to sing for Tedd Riley. Julian Awari also got to show off his singing skills when he sang the National Anthem for the Kansas City Chiefs in early 2020.
Speaking of his music, Awari released a debut Christian album called ‘Identity’ way back in 2013. And, guess what, ‘The Voice’ won’t be his first singing reality show as had earlier auditioned for BET’s ‘Sunday’s Best’ in 2012 and was in the Top 20 in Season 5. Awari also released has a 16-track R&B /soul album called ‘Beneath the Surface’ in 2018 followed by a six-song EP called ‘Journey’.
