Hunter Plake sang a new version of “Higher Love” during “The Voice” on Monday. Check out the video below!

Plake is one of two artists left on Gwen Stefani’s team for season 12 of the NBC competition. While there’s many strong singers this cycle, the aspiring star has set himself apart by performing unique arrangements. That’s made for some memorable performances, like Plake’s take on Kodaline’s “All I Want,” which is landed him 10th on the iTunes singles chart last week.

This time around, Plake opted to rework Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love.” In rehearsals, Stefani called it the “perfect song to make sure he’s going to be around” for future weeks. Both agreed the lyrics were fitting for the world today, and Plake further found inspiration from his mom, who taught him how to be the best man he could be. The contestant’s mother even got to meet Stefani.

After his live performance, Adam Levine said Plake’s arrangement of the classic song was “definitely a testament to your ability… to turn it into to something that makes sense now.” Stefani also told him, “I’m very proud of you. I’m very proud I get to know you and watch you do your art right here in front of America.” That prompted Plake to admit, “It was such a blast tonight.” Watch the video below!
