LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Leonard Moisan took WAVE 3 News on a walk down memory lane Monday.
He showed off old photos of his now 33-year-old son David.
David Moisan was an all-American high school swimmer, earned a scholarship to Notre Dame, and now sells medical devices for a living. His latest accomplishment is becoming a contestant on the hit NBC show "The Voice."
"It doesn't surprise me because that's a typical Dave achievement, but at the same time it really is exciting," Leonard Moisan said. "He's not only representing our family, but of course himself, and also his community."
David started taking music lessons as a kid and currently plays at Sojourn Community Church.
"I listened to The Four Tops, and The Supremes, The Temptations, and Smokey Robinson," Leonard Moisan said. "That's the kind of music he picked up on, so he is very soulful in his delivery."
That soulful sound immediately piqued the interest of Louisville radio host Kyle Meredith. He's had David Moisan on his show a number of times.
"Right from the first record and everything, it was well-produced," Meredith said. "It was well-written. I mean they were hooky, I mean just hooks all around the place, and it turns out you meet the guy and he's amazingly nice."
It's possible every one of those characteristics translated on stage because "The Voice" judges were fighting over which one of them would get Moisan on their team. However, the soulful sounds from his childhood prevailed. He selected Alicia Keys as his coach.
Moisan will be featured next on the battle rounds of "The Voice," which will begin airing on WAVE 3 News on Oct. 10.
