Josh Kaufman’s wife Jennifer Myer and their three children might have been very proud of him as he won The Voice's grand final on Tuesday night (May 20, 2014). The 38-year-old singer became the season 6 winner of the prestigious reality show after beating out YouTube sensation Christina Grimmie from Team Blake Shelton and country crooner Jake Worthington from Team Adam Levine. His victory also means that Usher nabbed his first "Voice" coach victory.
“I can’t even talk,”Josh said at the end of the show. “I’m overwhelmed, I’m surprised, I’m happy, I’m relieved. This has been so much more…than I ever could have imagined.”
As the new champion, Josh Kaufman lands a record contract with Universal and a $100,000 prize. The Indianapolis singer also receives a car from "Voice" sponsor Kia and will tour the United States this summer.
