A Mississippi pastor has taken out the latest American season of the reality television singing show “The Voice”, singing a popular Christian crossover hit in the finale.
The Christian Post reports, Todd Tilghman became the Season 18 winner in a performance that included a rendition of the MercyMe track, “I Can Only Imagine”.
The father of eight’s performance was conducted remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions, and was labelled “incredible” by the team coaches.
The 41-year-old lead pastor of Cornerstone Church in Meridian is the oldest person to win “The Voice”.
The Washington Post reports, Pastor Tilghman had come into the competition with no performance background, having only sung at church.
He has now won $100,000 and a record deal.
