Editor’s Note: This interview was conducted during Carter Rubin’s journey on The Voice, since then he has gone on to win the 19th season of the Voice, being the youngest male singer to do so.

The following are highlights from the rest of Carter’s The Voice journey:

Along with fellow contestant Larriah Jackson, Carter sang “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor for the Battle round, a truly dulcet duet that had judges struggling to choose.

For the Knockouts, Carter gave an impressive and expressive performance of “You Say” by Lauren Daigle that almost brought Kelly Clarkson to tears.

In the Semifinals, Carter’s smooth voice produced an enchanting and captivating rendition of “Rainbow Connection” from The Muppet Movie.

The Finale included Carter singing his uplifting original song, “Up From Here” as well as an incredibly festive duet of “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” with his coach, Gwen Stefani.
