If reality competitions know how to do one thing, it's tug on those heartstrings.
In this exclusive first look at a contestant's blind audition on The Voice, a single father puts his future in one song, all in hope that one judge turns that giant chair around…
Jesse Campbell's story is one straight out of the movies: his wife left him, he ended up homeless and he had to sleep in his car with his little girl on his chest. He found a new life through singing, at weddings and churches, and now in his 40s, he's counting on his voice to bring him and his daughter the future they deserve.
But of course, it's up to judges Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton if he makes it to the next round. Do they press the button and swing around? Watch the video below to find out, and then tune in to E! News tonight at 7 p.m. for the whole story (NBC and E! are both part of the NBCUniversal family).
The Voice premieres Feb. 5, after the Super Bowl, on NBC.
