Hometown: Pell City, Alabama
Resident: Pell City, Alabama
Berritt spent his early childhood playing every sport, but sadly at 8 years old, he was diagnosed with a heart condition. It was discovered that Berritt had HCM, a disease in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick and has to beat harder to compensate for normal blood flow. Doctor's orders forced him to give up on sports, but luckily his parents enrolled him in guitar lessons and music quickly became his saving grace. Berritt started to blossom as an artist, but at 17, he had to undergo open-heart surgery to save his life. Make-A-Wish was going to allow Berritt to meet "The Voice" coaches, but the COVID-19 pandemic sidelined that opportunity. Berritt decided to audition instead and made it to "The Voice" stage on talent alone.
