Recently speaking with American Songwriter, Asher discussed his time on the show, his future plans—which include a few short films—as well as his history-making win as the first openly gay champion of The Voice.

As far as other creative endeavors go, Asher was working on a short film when he auditioned for The Voice. Titled The Cure, there is not much information out there about he film. Asher did, however, share his plans for his filmmaking career as it related to his music career.

When asked about the film, Ahser replied, “We were working on that and then I won The Voice, so now The Cure, The Medicine—everything— done, just pause. It now has to sit in the back seat.”

It looks like Asher HaVon has a couple of short films up his sleeve that have taken to the back burner after his win. On his official website, there is a poster for The Cure that announces it is “coming soon.” However, fans might be better off following Asher’s music career instead, as that seems to be what he is spending his time and energy on at the moment.
