These Are All The Singers Headed into the Battles on 'The Voice' Season 18

Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas have officially filled their Season 18 teams for The Voice—and now it's time for the coaches to make some cuts.

During a thrilling few weeks of blind auditions, each of the coaches picked 10 contestants to move forward in the NBC singing competition. Now that their rosters are full, the artists will duke it out on stage during the battle rounds, which begin on Monday.

As always, coaches will pair two artists from their teams to perform the same song together during the battles. Then coaches will have the hard decision of picking one member to move on to the next phase of the competition—the live shows—while the other is sent packing.

Before teams slim down, get to know a little more about the 40 artists who wowed the coached during the blinds and landed a spot on Season 18 of The Voice.

Cam Spinks

It's no surprise 29-year-old Spinks chose to roll with Team Blake after blowing both Shelton and Clarkson away with his cover of Pat Green's "Wave on Wave" during the blind auditions. Country music, which Shelton is widely known and praised for, is the genre Spinks loves and appreciates the most. Versed in the guitar and harmonica, Spinks was already performing his own songs locally before joining The Voice, and he's even released three EPs on Apple Music.

Jacob Daniel Murphy

California native Murphy flexed jazzy, bluesy vocals and a few stunning high notes during his performance of Aretha Franklin's "Until You Come Back to Me" during the blinds, but the 27-year-old is a fan of all genres and styles of music and is open to performing just about all of them. Before landing a spot on Shelton's team, Murphy was working at a recording studio, where he first started learning about the music industry.

Jamal Corrie

A musical prodigy, 26-year-old Corrie was 12 years old when he first began composing music. He completed two instrumental albums by the time he was 14. A full-time musician, the Illinois native plays eight instruments—which he self-taught himself—and would often perform on the street in his new residence of California before securing a spot on Team Blake.

Joei Fulco

Born in Tennessee, Fulco was a two-year-old when she began singing in her dad's band. She belted out "Jingle Bells" in front of an audience of more than 2,000 people. Fulco, 22, continues to perform as a full-time musician alongside her siblings in the family band.

Jon Mullins

The 32-year-old got his first shot at performing after he joined an a cappella group during high school in his Virginia hometown. He expanded his musical repertoire and studied the guitar and vocal performance in college, where he also began writing his own music. After university, Mullins and his wife relocated to Tennessee so he could pursue his dreams of becoming a professional performer.

Kailey Abel

Nineteen-year-old Abel auditioned twice before she finally charmed the coaches with a cover of "Forever Young" by Alphaville. Growing up in small-town Oklahoma, Abel began performing when she was a little girl, singing on stage at her father's church. In addition to appearing on The Voice, Abel's currently studying music therapy at Tulsa's Oral Roberts University.

Levi Watkins

The youngest member on Team Blake, 14-year-old Watkins discovered his love of for singing and playing the guitar when he was just a kid. Although his schedule is pretty busy with high school studies and running a lawn mowing service he started with one of his brothers, the Alabama native spends much of his downtime honing in on his craft. His blind audition cover Train's "Hey Soul Sister" marked his first performance in front of an audience.

Todd Michael Hall

The oldest member of Team Blake—and the overall competition—50-year-old Hall first began performing decades ago when he joined his brother's band at age 15. However, his music career was put on a halt when he joined his family's manufacturing company in Michigan after college. Only after marrying and raising his three children did Hall begin performing professionally again in his heavy metal band, Riot.

Todd Tilghman

Mississippi resident Tilghman is a lead pastor at his neighborhood church, but he's enjoyed singing for most of his life. His decision to audition for The Voice was 41-year-old Tilghman's effort to pursue a lifelong dream.

Toneisha Harris

The Maryland native started singing professionally in her mother's traveling gospel group when she was 12 years old. She later decided to pursue a music career as an R&B singer when she was 15. However, her dreams were put on old later on in life when her son was diagnosed with leukemia. Now that her son is living cancer-free, 44-year-old Harris is taking another shot at becoming a full-time singer.

Anaya Cheyenne

Music has been 16-year-old Cheyenne's main focus since she started attending performing arts camp in the summer as a child. When she was 12, she moved from Connecticut to Georgia so she could attend the artistic program full-time. An experienced singer, Cheyenne shares most of her musical content on her YouTube, of which she has more than 80,000 subscribers. Cheyenne also has professional experience singing in front of a large audience—she once performed the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden in New York.


Eighteen-year-old Chelle was terribly shy when she first began singing. For the longest, she'd steered clear of performing on stage and would only post covers of songs she enjoyed singing on YouTube. However, when she turned 13, she decided to finally get over her stage fright, and through the help of a program that taught children how to sing with musicians, the Indiana native found her passion for performing on stage.

Gigi Hess

A chilling rendition of "Lovesong" by The Cure landed 22-year-old Hess on Team Kelly. However, Hess' journey to becoming comfortable on stage was a long one. Although she grew up singing, drastic weight gain caused by a polycystic ovarian syndrome diagnosis nearly kept her from the stage. After facing years of bullying and torment over her weight, Hess underwent gastric sleeve surgery when she was 19. Shedding 120 pounds helped the New Mexico native gain back her confidence, and she's been performing ever since.


The Georgia-born singer started training her voice when she was just 5 years old. At age 8, she began learning to play the guitar. By 12, Jules was performing at venues around her hometown.

Mandi Thomas

The 33-year-old began training in classical music when she was 11 years old. Since then, she's furthered her music education by focusing on musical studies in college, and now the Tennessee resident teaches vocal lessons to other aspiring artists. Thomas has even trained two musicians who appeared on previous seasons of The Voice, which inspired her decision to focus on her own musical pursuits.

Megan Danielle

A Georgia native, Danielle started singing at the suggestion of her grandmother. When she was 15, her mom convinced her to sing at a restaurant and that experience led the 17-year-old to pursue a professional career as a singer. She performs regularly at open mics in her hometown.

Micah Iverson

Team Kelly's lone male Iverson took up music while growing up in Tokyo, where he lived with his eight siblings and missionary parents. It wasn't until he moved to the U.S. and attended the University of Virginia when he decided to take his love of music more seriously by joining an a cappella group. Although he graduated with a degree in business finance, Iverson wants a life on the stage. The 25-year-old quit his finance job over a year ago and has since solely focused on his music career.

Samantha Howell

The 19-year-old was only 13 when she began booking her own signing gigs around her hometown in Virginia. When she was 17, she traveled to California to work on her own album. Howell's already quite known in her home state for her beautiful voice, however, she recently uprooted to Tennesse in effort to help her music career get the boost she needs.

Sara Collins

Born in Louisiana, Collins started taking guitar and vocal lessons when she was 8 years old. She's performed at school events, on stage at gigs around her hometown and has even opened for country stars like Hunter Hayes and Kane Brown.

The 21-year-old charmed Legend with his cover of The Weeknd's "Earned It."

After having performed in a choir for many years, CammWess expanded his musical pursuits and taught himself how to play the instrument.


The 28-year-old, who was diagnosed with alopecia at age 10, only began her musical journey three years ago.

Arei Moon

The 28-year-old Georgia singer wowed superstar singer Jonas so much with her cover of "Miss Independent" during the blinds, that the new coach was forced to block fellow coach Clarkson from having the opportunity to pick Moon. It was clear from her time on the stage that she's well versed in performing, and she is. The 28-year-old has been singing since childhood and even opened a show for LL Cool J when she was 12. She sang in her school's choir as well, and after college Moon began pursuing a full-time career in music.
