Alex Whalen, a country singer from London, is one of the artists to watch on season 23 of The Voice. The show, which airs on NBC and features coaches like Kelly Clarkson, Chance the Rapper, Niall Horan and Blake Shelton, invites singers from across the country to compete against each other to find the best.
Who is Alex Whalen?
Alex Whalen, a veteran musician, traveled to the United States from London to pursue his musical career. He and his wife have since made their home in Tampa, where he is a frequent entertainer at local beach bars and restaurants.
Alex revealed in a 2019 television interview that he and his wife left London because they weren’t making any progress there. In addition, the rain also influenced his decision.
Moving to Aiken, South Carolina, Alex’s wife trained horses and he devoted himself to music, identifying his genre as contemporary outlaw country, drawing inspiration from iconic names like Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash combined with artists modern like Chris Stapleton.
Those who visit his YouTube channel can find various covers of rock-related songs, including “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones and “Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi.
Whalen performed “Help Me Make It Through the Night” by Kris Kristofferson during The Voice blind auditions. Shelton was the first coach to spin her chair for him, and Chance did the same during the song’s climax. Whalen ultimately chose to be part of the latest Team Blake after careful deliberation.
