Meet Deion Warren, a 28-year-old North Carolina native and probation officer whose cover of “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, earned him a three chair turn from coaches John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and Nick Jonas on The Voice.

Following his stunning performance, Legend, Clarkson and Jonas all fought to have Warren on their team and praised his vocal abilities which were absolutely flawless.

“I didn’t hit my button for one reason I made a promise to an artist that if they were to pick me that I would keep the lane clear for them and for once I’m gonna stick to my word John,” Blake Shelton shared.

“2021 bringing us all sorts of surprises,” Legend joked before Shelton added “you’ve got three incredible coaches to choose Nick from, so here we go man, let’s hear it.”

“My parents own a restaurant in Belmont, North Carolina and I always picture myself driving to their restaurant, listening to your voice as if it was on the radio and thinking ‘I have to know who this is’ and if the opportunity presents itself, I have to be their coach on The Voice,” Jonas said. “I believe you and I can take this thing to the end of the competition, all the way to the finale and I felt really emotionally connected. I think everyone that watched that performance felt what you were saying, please come to team Nick and let me be your coach.”

“I loved the song choice because whenever an artist covers a song that’s kind of a different style than what they come with, then makes it their own, I think it takes skill to pull that off, it takes musicianship, it takes artistry and you showed us all of that,” Legend gushed. “I loved your low voice, it was rich, it was nuanced. Every line was delivered with power and essence and you don’t need a lot of coaching from us and I’d love to help you through this thing.”

“I loved when I turned around, I was like wow, it was a little different than what I was expecting as I’ve heard a lot of singers cover it and I think they’re doing it more to show off their range instead of doing it for the reason that the song was probably written and the message behind it,” Clarkson explained. “It felt like you were the perfect vessel for the message in the moment and that is my favorite kind of singer and I think that’s why Nick said he can get you to the finale because I do think that you can get to the finale. Pick, I don’t know someone whose won a vocal competition.”

Warren chose John Legend as his coach, which Legend gushed, “what I love most about Deion, is the passion and energy he sings with and that true deep appreciation for soul.”
