Malik Davage The Voice Audition Video


Malik Davage burst into tears after his Blind Audition on Tuesday’s “The Voice.” Watch below.

The 23-year-old from southeast D.C. revealed he’s witnessed “drugs, killings, fights, you name it.” But his love of music has led to performances on “106 & Park” and for the Washington Wizards. Still, he acknowledged, “It’s not easy to make it in music,” and he was determined to give his toddler daughter a better life.

In fact, this would be her first time watching him perform. Davage sang Miguel’s “Sure Thing,” and only Adam Levine turned around. But that was enough to make the aspiring star start crying as soon as his performance was over.

Gwen Stefani was touched by his raw emotion, and encouraged Malik to “come here.” He took her up on the offer, and after they embraced, Levine told the contestant to go sit in his iconic chair and put his feet up. Davage did that, too.

And after he explained he was so emotional because of his daughter, the little girl and Davage’s mother came out on stage. That led to a sweet group hug, and his mom was particularly excited to meet Levine. The coach said he took a “risk” turning around, but was “happy” he did, as Davage was obviously a “good dude.” Check out the moving video below!
