Josh Davis, a 20-year-old singer from Cleveland, Tennessee, landed a spot on Kelly Clarkson's team during Monday night's episode of "The Voice."
Davis sang "Too Good at Goodbyes" by Sam Smith in the blind auditions. Clarkson turned her chair around first, shortly followed by coach Jennifer Hudson.
"I love your voice, man," Clarkson enthused. "I have a lot of female power and I need a guy who can hang with them. Your runs are so effortless."
Davis, son of Wendy and Mike Davis of Cleveland, attended Walker Valley High School before leaving school when he was offered a recording contract in Nashville at age 16. He played at that time with a contemporary Christian band called 3 For 3. He completed high school through online courses and is now a student at Cleveland State Community College studying business. He is employed as a personal trainer at the YMCA.
Davis's parents rented Big Tom's Backyard Grill & Bar in Cleveland on Monday night, inviting friends to join them in watching their son's audition but not giving any clue as to what the outcome would be.
When Monday night's show began, coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Hudson and Clarkson each had one spot left to fill on their teams. With the addition of Davis, Clarkson was the second coach to complete her team of singers.
