The Delaware Valley’s Voice is not quite America’s voice but he impressed in any case.
South Jersey native and Philadelphia Art Institute alum, Matt McAndrew, came up just short, finishing second in Season 7 of NBC10’s The Voice.
Matt’s delivery of songs from artists ranging from Coldplay to Damien Rice to Judy Garland put him near the top of the singing competition. But it wasn't enough as country singer Craig Wayne Boyd, of Team Blake, won.
Matt however, did beat out fellow Team Adam members — Pittsburgh’s Chris Jamison and wild card R&B singer Damien Lewis — on Tuesday night's show.
Matt’s original performance of “Wasted Love” on Monday night’s episode wasn't enough to put the Team Adam star on top but the future is still bright for the Barnegat Light, New Jersey native who told NBC10 he was extremely appreciative of his new-found fame.
"The Voice" returns to NBC in 2015 for season 8, featuring the return of original series coach Christina Aguilera, who will join Adam, Blake and Pharrell in the big red chairs.
