Davon Fleming talks 'The Voice' -- Working with Jennifer Hudson is a dream come true

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/09/2017 

Davon Fleming is a 25-year-old worship leader from Baltimore MD, who is currently competing on The Voice's thirteenth season.

For his Blind Audition, Davon sang "Me & Mr. Jones" and received a four-chair turnaround from coaches Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Jennifer Hudson within a couple seconds of his performance.

Jennifer noted that Davon's vocals left her "speechless," and that's when Blake admitted, "You're going to be in the finale. That's a bold statement for anybody to make, and I say it with confidence, dude."

"My mind was racing, so it was a really great experience that everybody turned around. And Blake has won the most seasons as a coach, so for him to say that and these country music folk, everybody loves him.  It really made an impact, definitely," Davon told reporters during a conference call after his audition aired on NBC.

Miley was inspired by Davon's style, and Jennifer explained she could relate to him because, growing up, they'd both playfully pretend to sing duets with Whitney Houston, who was their hero. Jennifer also played the card of having found fame on American Idol, arguing that she started off on a similar stage.

Jennifer then decided to sing "I Will Always Love You" with Davon as a last-ditch effort to convince him to join her team.

"First, it was amazing to sing with Jennifer. She is royalty, because I remember watching Jennifer on American Idol, you know, and not winning it all until later coming out on top with working on Broadway and selling millions of records, moving to theatre," Davon explained.

"Everything that she's accomplished, that's the stuff that I want to do, and so, her calling me to sing with her, that was like a dream come true. It was like my second living. You know, another one of my dreams. And that's also the reason why I chose her."

Davon opted to become a member of "Team Jennifer" although Adam and Blake, especially, were not quick to give up.

Adam argued "the best fit" for a contestant is sometimes "found in the strangest places," while Blake mentioned how Davon will inspire people by potentially winning The Voice -- a feat the country coach bragged about having accomplished five times already.

"You deserve to win this show," Blake added.

But Davon's heart was set on Jennifer, who told the cameras after his audition, "I truly think he can win this show."

"For a long time, people told [Jennifer] that she couldn't do it, and she kept fighting and she came out on top. And I think anybody can really appreciate that... [her] determination," Davon said. "So, you know, dream big and put aside what everybody has to say, anybody can respect that and always admire her for that."

Davon will be moving on to The Voice's infamous "The Battle Round."
