Christian Cuevas on The Voice
This semi finalist on “The Voice” is not just a Christian by name!
Christian Cuevas belted out a powerful rendition of the gospel song “To Worship You I Live” by Israel and New Breed, on “The Voice” last week, according to CBN News.
Proudly expressing his faith on the hit NBC show, Cuevas sang his heart out, touching his audience, including the judges, with many people even lifting their hands in worship. One of the judges, Alicia Keys, even sang right along with him from her chair.
After singing the last line from the song, Cuevas was so overcome with emotion that tears started flowing from his eyes.
His cover of the worship song immediately soared to the top 10 overall. Moreover, the video of his performance that was uploaded on YouTube has attracted more than 2.5 million views as of Monday.
Commentators were all praise for Cuevas for choosing the gospel song for his semifinals stint in the national singing competition.
Israel Houghton also commented on the performance, he took to his own Instagram account to reveal that he was honored to witness Cuevas’ performance of his song.
“Came to support my friend, the incredible @christiancuevasmusic tonight @nbcthevoice. I’m so honored that he chose to sing one of my songs ‘To Worship You I Live.’ I Love his humble heart and his willingness to honor God on any and all platforms,” he wrote.

Despite his powerful rendition, Cuevas failed to make it to the finals as he bid “The Voice” goodbye, brimming with gratitude to the show for allowing him to sing his faith and share God’s message to millions of viewers not only in America but overseas as well.
“So glad that I was able to share God with y’all,” he tweeted after the show.
