Arei Moon vs. Samuel Wilco - An R&B Spin on John Waite's "Missing You" - The Voice Battles 2020
Hometown: Lake City, South Carolina
Residence: Fort Knox, Kentucky
Samuel grew up singing in church and always wanted to be a graphic artist. He planned to get an art scholarship, but at 18 an army recruiter offered him $40,000 for college if he enlisted, and so he did. Samuel would sing during basic training and was encouraged by his drill sergeant to continue pursuing music. Samuel has now been in the army for 21 years, is an instructor at the army’s recruiting college and owns a design company on the side. After continuous support from his family and fellow soldiers, Samuel comes to “The Voice” to make music his top priority.
