Blessing Chitapa Wins The Voice Aged 18

Blessing is the 9th winner from The Voice series, 4th female to win and 2nd youngest contestant

Blessing’s winning single ‘Angels’ is now available to download and stream via https://thevoice2020.lnk.to/Blessing

Blessing is the 9th winner from The Voice series, 4th female to win and 2nd youngest contestant, Originally from Zimbabwe, Blessing comes from a family of gospel singers.

Olly Murs mentored Blessing throughout the ninth series which had to stop filming just weeks before the semi-finals were due to take place in March, due to the pandemic. This marks the longest ever wait for a winner to be crowned

Blessing’s winning performances on the show were: ​Angels​, ​You’ll Know My Name Before I Go​ by Marisha Wallace and ​Hold Back The River​ by James Bay (a dueted between Blessing and mentor Olly Murs)

Blessing, originally from Zimbabwe moved to the UK in 2009 and she now lives in the West Midlands with her close family. 

Olly Murs became Blessing’s mentor after being the only judge to turn his chair around for her. The ninth series of The Voice is the longest series due to production stopping ahead of the semi-finals and the final because of Covid-19.

Speaking of the experience, Blessing comments: 

“This experience has taught me, if you have self-belief, you can achieve anything. There were times when I didn’t think I could do it but Olly Murs (my mentor), helped me to develop my own self-belief system. Being the second act in a row to win with Olly, makes me feel incredibly lucky. Growing up surrounded by gospel singers has let me see first hand the positive impact of music. I can’t wait to make people feel good with my music”​

Angels ​has been produced by legendary pop producer Brian Rawlings. The single is now available to download and stream via: https://thevoice2020.lnk.to/Blessing
