‘I think I got my voice from my mum, she used to sing in a band,’ he explained.Joshua sang a cover of Calum Scott’s You Are The Reason, with all four coaches – Will.i.am, Pixie Lott, Paloma Faith and Danny Jones – turning their chairs.
The coaches praised the young lad’s performance with Paloma saying: ‘I think from the first moment you sang, I was like, “this is beyond anything I thought I’d hear on Voice Kids.”’While Danny added: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever heard that from a 14-year-old, ever.’ ‘I thought you were singing just to me,’ Pixie then joked.
This moment was a mother-son goal for all of us because of the love they have for each other and the talent they are both blessed with.There was not a dry eye in the house, and all four coaches were brought to tears by this powerful moment.
