Emmy Award-winning “The Voice” has crowned its season six champion, soul man, Josh Kaufman. This season showcased the best talent the show has seen since its inception, making each week an epic battle between the artists, setting the tone for this summer’s highly anticipated “The Voice Tour Presented By CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™.” Chicago fans can now catch Josh Kaufman on “The Voice Tour Presented By CLEAR SCALP & HAIR™” this summer at The Chicago Theatre on Wednesday, July 16.
Kristen Merlin will officially join the tour as well after being voted in by the fans via twitter submissions, deeming her fan favorite. Merlin wowed the judges and the rest of America during her blind audition singing Sugarland’s “Something More,” and won over fans with her rock and roll takes on country hits. After a very successful season, runners up, country crooner Jake Worthington and pop powerhouse Christina Grimmie will also be hitting the road on the tour.
