The One Coach Who Didn’t Turn For Asher HaVon On ‘The Voice’

Although being the one celebrated, HaVon didn’t share the spotlight alone as he took a moment to honor his coach, Reba. He said, “ Oh my god, it has meant the world to me. Thank you for giving me such a safe place to be artistic self, thank-you for making me believe in myself. And I promise you I will never let you down.”

While looking to win himself, Legend also praised HaVon throughout The Voice even though he was the only coach not to turn for the singer during the blind auditions. Still, with the contestant commanding the stage, Legend compared him to Whitney Houston. “There are certain things about you that remind me of Whitney Houston. She would take these songs that weren’t written for a soul singer and have that restraint and regal presence on the sound but also throw in a dope run that you would hear in church.” He added, “In church, we save a descriptor for certain vessels, we say they’re anointed. I just felt that anointing on you. That was divine.”
