LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville singer was the first contestant on The Voice to get all four judges to turn their chairs around on the show's season premier.
On Monday, Dave Moisan's co-workers welcomed him back to the job, after this appearance on the NBC singing competition.
"Music has always been a part of my life," Dave Moisan told WAVE 3 News anchor Dawne Gee. "I remember back when I was 10, telling my Dad I was going to do something with music cause it made me happy."
But happy doesn't always pay the bills. So after college, Dave took a job. He is a medical device sales representative for Karl Storz by day.
Dave spends any spare time he has singing, which eventually paid off when The Voice producers discovered him.
"So the way The Voice works, they have people who will look around YouTube, look around Spotify, just look for local musicians across the country," Moisan said. "Somehow they found me."
Contestants on the show hope to get at least one of the judges' chairs to turn around during the first round. Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys all turned around for Dave Moisan.
Then came the decision. Each judge made their plea for Dave to choose to be on their team.
"When Adam started talking, I said 'ok I'm sold. I'm going with Adam," Dave recalled. "Then Miley started talking. When Alicia spoke, the crowd hushed."
In the end, Dave chose to be on Alicia Keys' team. "She's Alicia Key's so she's pretty awesome."
During the show, Kentucky One Health employees gathered to cheer on their medical sales rep and the man many had no idea could even sing.
The Voice airs on WAVE 3 News each Monday at 8 p.m.
