Pop Culture: Javier Colon
Javier Colon Becoming the first Latino to win The Voice
If at first you don’t succeed… Javier Colon was previously signed to Capitol Records from 2002-2006 before his contract was terminated. Vowing to make music once again, the acoustic soul singer/songwriter auditioned for the inaugural season of The Voice. Within seconds of singing Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” during his blind audition, the show’s mentors all turned their chairs around and later started an all-out bidding war for Colon, the show’s instant front-runner. He ultimately picked Adam Levine to coach him and help get him into the finale, where he’d ultimately take the title and prove that second chances can lead to victory!
