Big Voices From DFW

Luke Wade and Reagan James from the Metroplex are both competing to be the winner of NBC’s The Voice.

From Burleson, Reagan James had both Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani spinning their chairs in the first seconds of her blind audition.

James chose Blake Shelton as her coach after he commended her for her unique voice.

“I love your voice, and I love how sometimes you can take your voice and turn it into the mix of a falsetto and full voice…I just think that we haven’t ever heard anybody like you on this show, and I just think that you are very special,” said Shelton.

James said the most challenging part of the show is traveling back and forth from Texas to California, but working with Blake Shelton makes it more than worth the while.

“There’s no way to describe what it’s like to get to hang out with the great Blake Shelton. He’s one of the most authentic and caring people I’ve ever met.”

Luke Wade from Fort Worth is also a strong competitor on the show for team Pharrell Williams.

Wade won his first battle round singing Maybe I’m Amazed, leading Adam Levine to say he is the best singer in the competition right now.

In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, Wade said he isn’t surprised that he has made it this far.

“I never really doubted that this is where I should be. I’ve been working really hard, and I’m proud of where I am at and what I can do.”

Both can be seen working to advance every week on Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC. —Lexi Johnson
