Rosenberg native and countertenor John Holiday said he was filled with gratitude and called it an honor to sing Stevie Wonder’s “Summer Soft” with Julia Cooper Tuesday night during the Battle Rounds of The Voice.

Blake Shelton described Holiday as a “force on this show” and Kelly Clarkson called his vocal range incredible.

“I have no words for you. I don’t even understand how you’re real,” Gwen Stefani teased when giving feedback.

John Legend, who coached Holiday along with singer Miguel, named Holiday as the winner of the battle, advancing him to the next round of the competition.

“He’s just one of those talents that don’t come along very often,” Legend said.

The show airs on Mondays and Tuesday at 7 p.m. on NBC.
