Johnny Hayes auditioned for season 11 before trying again this season. His story proves that persistence and faith are key ingredients towards success.
Johnny Gates will return to Team Gwen. Before The Voice, Johnny worked with Nathan Chapman and opened for Rod Stewart. Johnny Gates showcases his stage presence and signature contemporary blues-rock sound. During The Voice‘s knockouts, Johnny delivered a moving performance of Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons”.
