Wins The Voice

Other Awards

Fredericks wins season eight of The Voice. He is coached by Williams.

I just thought, ‘This is going to be a good learning experience.’ I’d never done any kind of audition thing before. So that’s kind of how I went into it, just seeing where it takes me…It was definitely a really big culture shock for me, moving from a farm to the city. Since I’m quite a bit of an introvert, it’s really hard for me to do interviews and that kind of stuff. The performing was really easy for me, just because I’ve always been performing; I do a lot of farmers’ markets and gigs like that. So that was the part where I was the least nervous, when I was up onstage singing. I was more nervous in the interviews, although I’m not as nervous now. I’m definitely getting more comfortable with all this stuff. I’ve come out of my shell through this whole entire experience.

On his plans for the future:

I would not move to L.A.; I love my home back on the farm. I would visit L.A., but it would never be my home. I can take trips and stay in hotels for a while, but I always want to have a farm to come back to.

Turns four chairs

AuditionMusic Performance

Fredericks’ performance of I’m a Man of Constant Sorrow turns all four judges chairs in less than ten seconds. All were in agreement that the home-schooled farm boy is destined to have a bright future. Pharrell Williams:

As soon as you started singing, it actually took me to another time. This is your destiny, and it’s honestly about you and what you want to do. I would love to have you on my team, but I’m so proud to be a part of this show, because even if you don’t end up on my team, I get to watch this amazing thing happen.
