The Voice Blind Audition Turns All 4 Chairs With A Gospel Song

Matthew Johnson turns all four chairs on The Voice with his’ I Smile ‘ rendition. This gospel song was originally released by Grammy award-winning artist Kirk Franklin in 2011. Now, throughout the world, the powerful lyrics continue to touch hearts.

“I smile,
Even though I hurt, see, I smile
I know God is working so I smile
Even though I’ve been here for a while
What you do? I smile
Come on, smile
It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down
Sure would hate to see you give up now
God’s people, you look so much better when you smile, so smile”

There’s no doubt at all that Florida native, Matthew Johnson, is a talented singer.

Today, he’s chasing his dreams all the way to The Voice stage and his blind audition is making a big scene. Matthew had barely finished the first note of ‘I Smile’ when coach Blake Shelton hit his button to turn his chair around and get a look at the singer. One by one, the other three judges swung around to see the face behind that golden voice. After the audition was over, Blake, Kelly, John and Adam all fought it out to secure Matthew on their team. But it was John Legend, with his church background, who eventually earned the bragging rights.

I’m so glad that we’ll be seeing Matthew again on this show. If his next song is anything like this blind audition then we are in for an incredible season. What did you think of this Kirk Franklin cover on the voice?
