D.C. Man Gets Emotional While Auditioning on the show ‘The Voice’

A man born in Southeast D.C. burst into tears after his audition on “The Voice,” prompting judges Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine to hug and console him.  But these tears were tears of joys for 23-year-old Malik Davage.  Davage grew up in the Hill East area of Southeast, DC.  The D.C. native impressed the judges with his rendition of Miguel’s “Sure Thing.”

“I’m just a young guy from Washington, D.C. trying to do what’s best for my daughter,” Davage revealed as he got emotional following his performance.

He was selected for Adam Levine’s team. “I’m happy I took the risk because you’re clearly a good dude–I’m happy,” Levine told Davage.

@MalikDavage’s performance of “Sure Thing” by @Miguel might be one of the smooooothest Blind Auditions ever. #VoiceBlinds


He should be a fan favorite across the DMV.
