The impressive R&B vocalist won over viewers and audience members on May 22, during part one of the season finale with two solo performances and a duet with his coach. Chris’ performances consisted of the appealing, self-penned song “Money on You,” Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” and a Prince duet of “Diamonds and Pearls.”

All of his performances during the May 22 penultimate episode were spectacular. But, perhaps his original song of “Money on You” helped nudge out the other contenders in the competition. You can view that performance in the clip above!

Fans may recall that Chris’ passion in music began at a young age. He and his family, who formed a family band called the Blue Brothers, performed in local churches near his hometown. We’re so glad to see that he is taking another big step in his musical career.
