Contestant Bodie gave a powerful worship performance that left the judges breathless during night one of “The Voice’s” two-part finals. During season 22, the California native was a fan favorite as a member of judge Blake Shelton’s squad. Bodie performed “Gratitude” by Christian musician Brandon Lake at Monday night’s finals.
The worship song was dedicated to his three children, according to the 29-year-old musician. “I know it’s not much/ But I’ve nothing else fit for a king/ Except for a heart singing hallelujah/ Hallelujah,” Bodie sang.
Bodie shouted out the song fiercely as the concert progressed, joined by a choir. In worship, the choir lifted their hands, and the audience held up lights. “So come on, my soul/ Oh, don’t you get shy on me/ Lift up your song/ ‘Cause you’ve got a lion inside of those lungs/ Get up and praise the Lord,” he declared in song.
Bodie finished the concert, obviously moved by the lyrics he sang. Carson Daly then asked judge Gwen Stefani for her thoughts. “I’m choking on my tears over here,” Stefani shared. “You have a superpower behind you, it’s a truth. I think it comes from the pure faith that you have…I can’t even speak right now, that was so beautiful.”
John Legend another judge agreed and named Bodie a “leader” saying: “Whatever you want to do, you have that in you.” His coach, Blake Shelton was at a loss for words just like his wife, Stefani, and said Bodie’s performance was “one of the most moving performances I’ve seen in a long time on this show.”
Season 22 of “The Voice” ended with two-hour results broadcast on Tuesday. Bodie finished second, while Shelton’s other competitor, Bryce Leatherwood, took first place. Following the worship performance, Brandon Lake thanked God for exposing his music to millions of people through Bodie’s performance on Instagram.
