‘The Voice’ contestant wows with rendition of ‘Love and Happiness’

Chris Blue got a standing ovation from judges and the audience after his Monday night performance on “The Voice.”

The ‘Team Alicia’ singer brought the house down with his rendition of Al Green’s 1972 classic “Love and Happiness,” packed with high energy and soaring vocals.

“It’s just incredible to watch you, Chris. From the minute that you came on this show, you have this really uncanny ability to just make things electric,” Blue’s coach, Alicia Keys, said of his live showing.

“This song is a very difficult song to deliver. It’s an Al Green song for a reason…you came up here and you made it a Chris Blue song, and the whole audience and everybody at home could not stop clapping for you…when you feel it, you feel it.”

Blue captured the hearts of viewers after sharing the heartbreaking story of his fiancée, Stephanie, battling bone marrow cancer, all while maintaining a long-distance relationship, as she is from England.

The church worship leader also got his musical feet wet in a family band with his siblings called the Blue Family, later known as the Blue Brothers. The group performed across the Midwest and eventually made it all the way to the stage of BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel.
