Nicholas David (Saint Paul, Minn.)
Yes, Nicholas David is the dude from The Voice, making it to the finals on the NBC singing competition this past season. Don’t let that keep you away, though. After all, he didn’t win. If the majority of people who watch singing competitions didn’t like him, then he must be pretty good, right? Right. David’s voice has a soulfulness unlike anything that came from his competitors. The driving force behind him, his music, can fill an entire room even at its quietest. Advice: Asking for “Great Balls of Fire” is probably his version of hearing “Free Bird.” But do it. S’good.
