Singer Justin Aaron, 34, wowed “The Voice” fans this Monday night, Nov. 21, with his stunning performance of what has now become a gospel classic, Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s “Break Every Chain.” Not only did the performance thrill both live and television audiences, but, as the show revealed the following night, it moved Aaron into a coveted Top 10 spot for Season 22. Judges Camila Cabello, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Aaron’s coach, Gwen Stefani, gave him a standing ovation.
Aaron, of Junction City, Kansas, where he leads worship at New Church of the Living God, told Stefani before the performance that the song “changed the trajectory of my life,” breaking the chains of depression and moving him into a place of freedom.
His friends back in Kansas, including his pastor and fellow church members, are cheering Aaron on as he advances toward the show’s finals. “It excites us, it excited the congregation, it makes us feel good about him, because he’s trying to do something to make his life better and we’re excited for him every step of the way,” his pastor, James Johnson, told KSNT of Junction City.
Fans who posted on social media agreed on the power of both the song and Aaron’s performance:
