Former child star Billy Gilman had a hit country song with One Voice at the tender age of 12 years old.
Billy made history in 2000, when he became the youngest artist to have a Top 40 hit on the country charts with his first single, the gold-certified “One Voice” according to Yahoo News.
Gilman, now 28, also earned a double-platinum album for his full-length debut (which went to #2 on Billboard’s Country Chart), as well as two subsequent gold albums.
But he had to relearn how to sing after his post-puberty voice changed & Nashville eventually lost interest in him, and he even took a hiatus from music.
But Billy is BACK, and he made his debut on The Voice with an incredible blind audition singing Adele’s When We Were Young.
All four judges turned around so it was up to Billy to pick his coach.
While Blake would seem like the natural choice for the singer with his country background, Billy actually ended up choosing Adam Levine.
After the show aired, Billy posted to Twitter:
It’ll definitely be fun to watch how Adam will help shape Billy on the show.
