'The Voice' Season 21: Who is Kevin Hawkins? R&B singer who wowed judges also teaches piano in middle school
It's very rare in 'The Voice' that a singer does not get an introduction before the performance. But, it seems that Kevin Hawkins didn't need one as his performance proved how good he was. The stage was all dark and the audience didn't see Hawkins' face during the first few seconds of his performance. Soon, he made everyone cheer for him with his incredible voice. And, in no time all four chairs turned round.
Gwen Stefani was the first one to turn her chair which rarely happens. She even blocked John Legend from getting Hawkins. Indeed, the fight between the three judges was on. Hawkins was holding his tears back after seeing all the four judges turning their chairs. To get him on Team Blake, Blake Shelton played the Oklahoma card. On the other hand, Gwen pitched her part clarifying why she blocked John, saying, "I just wanna make sure you got the right coach." Camila Cabello was awe-struck by Hawkins' tone and bold performance. Keep reading to know who he picks as his coach.
Who is Kevin Hawkins?
Kevin Hawkins is from Dallas, Texas. He teaches piano to 7-8 graders at middle school. He is an R&B artist with a released track titled 'All Night Long'. The singer grew up in a musical family. His mother was one of the singers in the church choir. In an interview with Hip Hop Weekly, Hawkins revealed that he was inspired by the performers like Usher and Beyonce. He stated that watching them perform on the stage made him realize that this was the career he wanted to pursue.
Hawkins exuded confidence, and style, with his bold voice during his performance at 'The Voice' audition round. It was hard for him to choose among three judges, but he seemed to have already made up his mind. He chose Team Blake. Soon after Hawkins chose Blake, judges started teasing him that they will steal Hawkins from him later. Hawkins appeared to be loyal to his judge and said he will stay with him for as long as he could.
Fans wondered why Gwen blocked John from pitching Hawkins to join his team. Gwen didn't get him on her team, but fans think that John might have gotten Hawkins if he hadn't been blocked. "@johnlegend #TheVoice it sucks you got blocked from Kevin, But battle rounds is your chance to steal him," one fan wrote after watching Hawkins' performance. Another consoled John, "@johnlegend #TheVoice You were robbed!!! You and Kevin would have been a great partnership. #BooGwen."
A few fans cheered too loud for Kevin. Some think he will not only win the show, but he will also become a star. "Wow!!!! I didn’t see that coming. Kevin Hawkins isn’t just going to win #TheVoice, he’s going to be a fricken star!!!! Do you hear me? #VoicePremiere," one fan tweeted.
Furthermore, fans know that there is going to be stealing of contestants from different teams ahead in the competition. Hence, there is a chance for John to get Kevin on his team later. "When the steals start, John may have a chance to steal Kevin. I doubt Blake will let Kevin go though. #TheVoice #VoicePremiere #VoiceBlinds," another fan said. We will have to wait and watch to see whether Hawkins will switch teams during the competition.
'The Voice' Season 21 airs on NBC every Monday and Tuesday at 8/7c.
