Javier Colon crowned the first-season winner of NBC's 'The Voice'

UPI News Service, 06/30/2011 

Javier Colon has been declared the first winner of the U.S. vocal competition series "The Voice."

Colon beat out three fellow finalists -- Dia Frampton, Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez -- on Wednesday night's live results show and season finale.

He earned the grand prize of a recording contract and $100,000.

Each contestant was part of a team headed by musician coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton.

Colon was part of Levine's team.

"The soulful pop singer's father worked at a radio station and immersed his son in music from an early age; by 13, Colon was writing his own songs," NBC said in a release. "His young talent led to touring gigs and even a contract with Capitol Records, but his career never really took off. Now the devoted husband and father of two has realized his dream of pursing his musical aspirations and does not have to leave music behind to support his family. Colon is from Stratford, Conn."
