In an Instagram update, Joseph Soul said it was “such an honor” to represent team Kelly Clarkson “but to be stolen by @gwenstefani was one of the most magical moments of my life.”
Soul, 34, of Hawaiʻi, appeared for the second time on Tuesday night’s episode.
In Tuesday night’s battle round, Clarkson selected his duet partner to continue in the competition, and as Soul walked off the stage, he was picked up by Gwen Stefani who opted to “steal” him and become his new coach for Season 19.
As he got older, he started winning competitions and later traveled the world as DJ Audissey with residencies in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. In 2015, he decided to pursue a career as a soul artist and began performing under the name Joseph Soul.
He now plays 300 shows a year and recently got engaged to his fiancée, Nicole.
