Chris Blue won "The Voice," and he immediately took his talents to the press circuit! Celebrate with the big winner and coach Alicia Keys inside...
Won't he do it?! Chris Blue was the last to audition months ago on 'The Voice" and blew everyone away with his rendition of "Take Me To The King." Now, he's the newest and most promising talent to enter the music world.
After being coached by judge Alicia Keys, Chris won the whole competition last night. Today, the engaged brought his championship belt and trophy to "Extra" and a few more stops. But first, he said he's most excited about being able to give his fiancee the wedding of her dreams.
He'd already started planning it before winning The Voice, but now that he has his $100,000 grand prize winnings and a record deal, he "can give (his fiancée, Stephanie) the wedding she desires and the start of a very long life together," Blue told USA TODAY.
"My fiancée, she called me in tears about a month ago, because we just did not have the money" to afford a nice wedding, he said. " We had to take a lot of things away from our already-stripped-down wedding. We didn't even have wedding (invitations). Couldn't afford it. The church wasn't even going to be decorated. Couldn't afford it."
Get into his inspirational journey and what he said about his win below!
