Music Alum Picked by John Legend on ‘The Voice’

March 5, 2019

Julian King ’15 (Vocal Performance) conquered the blind auditions for NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice. During the auditions, hopeful contestants perform out of sight of the judging panel, who rely only on what they hear to decide whether or not they want to invite contestants to join their respective teams. 

For his audition, King sang “All Time Low” by Jon Bellion and immediately won over both Adam Levine and John Legend, with Legend beating out Levine at the last moment for King as his team member. 

In 2014, UArts alum Matt McAndrew ’13 (Vocal Performance) had a spectacular run on season 7 of The Voice, finishing second as a part of Levine’s team. Since them McAndrew has toured with Maroon 5, Nick Jonas, Andy Grammer and the Plain White T’s, and he continues touring nationally. 

Tune in to The Voice on NBC, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST, to follow King’s journey.
