WATCH: Mississippi Pastor Todd Tilghman Makes It to Final Nine on “The Voice” After Performing “Glory of Love”

Todd Tilghman, a pastor from Mississippi, is now one of the nine finalists in NBC’s singing competition show, “The Voice.”

The lead pastor of Cornerstone Church in Meridian, Mississippi, made his way to the top nine after advancing from 17 singers. Tilghman, who is on Team Blake, meaning he’s coached by country star Blake Shelton, performed Peter Cetera’s 1986 song, “Glory of Love.” His performance granted him the slot among the finalists in the award-winning TV competition.

Tilghman’s performance, which was done remotely due to pandemic restrictions, was praised as “incredible” by Shelton.

Shelton told Tilghman, “You are one of my favorite artists that I’ve ever worked with. In 100 years of doing this show, you’re a class to be around. You deserve to go all the way, man. Great job.”

Tilghman, a husband of 21 years and father of eight, first told “The Voice” judges in February, “I’ve literally never performed. I just sing at church.”
