Little Rock resident Levelle Davison has advanced on the 14th season of NBC singing competition The Voice.
On Tuesday night’s taped blind audition, Davison, 23, sang a rendition of "To Love Somebody" by The Bee Gees.
The performance won over coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and Davison ultimately chose to be on Levine’s team.
"You kind of embody the whole point of what this show is because I believe that your voice speaks to all of us," Levine said of Davison. "It just instantly makes you feel."
Shelton said: "There is something so vintage about your voice, man.
"And then to find out that you're from Little Rock, Arkansas. Man, I have eaten at many a Taco Bell in Little Rock, Arkansas," the country star joked.
"Well, obviously he should be your coach because he's been to a Taco Bell," Levine responded.
Davison began singing in church at the age of 9, according to a show spokesman. In the 10th grade, he formed a gospel group and performed around Arkansas’ capital city.
The Voice airs at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesday on NBC. In Little Rock, viewers can watch on KARK-TV, Channel 4
