On tonight’s episode of The Voice Season 3, the final contestant of the night managed to wow the judges purely with the strength of his.
But it was Mycle Wastman’s backstory that captured our attention (and had us reaching for a tissue). Mycle’s father passed away from lung cancer and his mother died of a respiratory disorder when he was a kid. Mycle was raised by his grandfather, who passed away less than two weeks before his audition.
The Seattle, Wa. native took his childhood hardships and channeled them into making great music. He has already produced a full-length album — The Beautiful Stay. Mycle describes his sound as “dripping with old soul vibe.”
That was evident with Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Cee Lo Green were all clamoring over each other to get him on their teams. His rendition of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” had Cee Lo bragging and Blake calling Mycle the best performance of the day.
Ultimately, Mycle went with Team Cee Lo and his choice was no surprise given his soulful background. Mycle performs regularly around Washington state, but that will have to go on hold when he battles another member of Team Cee Lo on The Voice stage in a few weeks.
