Sawyer Fredericks is one of the four finalists on The Voice. During the blind auditions, the 16-year-old farm boy from upstate New York, got all four judges/mentors – Adam Levine, Christian Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton – to turn around. “This is your destiny,” Pharrell told Sawyer before the young man made his decision. “It’s really about you and what you want to do,” Pharrell added before Sawyer picked him.
Before the blind audition, Sawyer said he watched Pharrell on the prior season. “I picked Pharrell because I watched him last season and I felt like he was very humble, and he talked a lot about originality which I think really speaks to me as an artist.” The winner of The Voice will be announced on the show, May 18 at 8pm on NBC.
