Ark-La-Tex singer moves to Battle Rounds on "The Voice"

Little Rock native and Wiley College alum chooses Adam Levine as coach

LOS ANGELES, Ca. - Former Wiley College student and former member of Wiley's A Cappella Choir Levelle Davison (performing as Davison) of Little Rock, Arkansas, recently auditioned on NBC's "The Voice," where his vocals were impressive enough to persuade show judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levin to want Davison to become a part of their teams.

The rules give the singers the option to choose their judge and Davison chose Adam Levine.

In his 'Blind Audition' for the broadcast, Davison chose a song by the Bee Gee's titled "To Love Somebody".

Davison now moves from "Blind Auditions" to the "Battle Rounds," where he will compete one-on-one against another singer. Levine will select the best of the two singers.

The final step requires the best of all judges (Levine, Shelton, Alicia Keyes and Kelly Clarkson) to compete against each other, while American audience viewers vote weekly for their favorites by phone/text from their homes until "The Voice" is chosen.

"Levelle's song selection for his 'Blind Audition' was strategically excellent," said Stephen Hayes, artistic director of Wiley's A Cappella Choir.

Hayes said Davison came to Wiley in Fall 2013 to join the choir. "At Wiley College, Levelle was a wonderful singer for the A Cappella Choir with a great personality. Of course, we wish him all the best."
