The winner of “The Voice,” Javier Colon, has talked about his win, his life before “The Voice” and iTunes charts with TVLine.
When asked about his life before he got picked to be on the hit NBC show, Colon said he had figured out how to stay afloat even while signed by Capitol Records. “From the time I was on Capitol Records, even after I got dropped in 2006 and up until 2011, I had found a way to make a living–college [gigs], corporate events and such,” he said. “But at the beginning of 2011, the well seemed to be drying up…I had already started talking to my wife about the possibility of doing something else, and that’s when ‘The Voice’ came up.”
Colon said he was nervous about his blind audition. “I was ill about it before I went out on stage,” he said, “probably more nervous than I’d been for anything I’d ever done…I told myself, ‘This is like any other show. Go out and sing it like you always do.”
Colon said his placement on the iTunes chart was “unbelievable.” “…[I]t’s hard to actually go to sleep because you’re looking at the chart. You look every 10 minutes, and it’s going in the right direction.”
