The Voice finale is in full swing, and 15-year-old Carter Rubin proved his unmatched vocal talent once more with a soaring cover of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”
Backed by a powerful string and piano arrangement, Rubin belted the inspiring track, moving his coach Gwen Stefani to tears.
“My heart is still beating out of my chest with nerves for you just because I care so much and I’m so happy for you and you’re unbelievable,” she gushed. “You’re just so calm, and it feels like you’re meant to be doing this.”
Stefani’s fiancé and fellow judge Blake Shelton agreed. “Even tough I’m supposed to be your competition over here, I’ve never felt that way,” he mirrored, “Because, listen man, this has been a tough year for everyone in the world and to end this year, and sit in this chair and listen to someone with your talent and your heart that I’m finding out everyday more about… I’m a fan, man.”
