Zimbabwean Donel Mangena has been doing the most at this year’s edition of The Voice Uk, and he is one of the favourites to walk away with the grand prize this year.
Will.i.am let slip that one of his acts from The Voice UK will be performing for the Queen at her 92nd birthday party.
Will told The Sun: “He’s only had three performances on TV and he gets that. Do you know how many times we’ve had to perform and we ain’t go no letter!”
Fellow coach Olly Murs then asked, “Yeah, where’s our letters?” to which Jennifer Hudson suggested that it probably got lost in the post. Ours too, JHud, ours too.
Will.i.am added that Donel has chosen to do his own choreography and even picked his own song but was worried that the beloved grandma may not be able to make it over to see him perform.
“He was stressing out that his grandmother might not be able to make it to the final from Zimbabwe because of her visa.”
Tom then quipped: “If she’s not coming, I’m not coming.”
Donel from Southampton impressed the coaching panel on The Voice during his blind audition in which all four of them turned round during his performance of Major Lazer’s ‘Cold Water’. [Source: Digital Spy]
