For his blind audition, Sawyer chose to sing the folk song “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow.” After just one line of the song, three coaches turned their chairs — Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and Pharrell Williams.

It didn’t take long for Blake Shelton to join them, giving Sawyer four chair turns. The coaches were mesmerized as they watched him perform, and they gave him a standing ovation at the end of the song.

“As soon as you started singing, that actually took me to another time,” Pharrell told him. “This is your destiny.” He added that even if Sawyer didn’t choose him, he was excited to watch him compete.

Sawyer chose to join Pharrell’s team, and went on to sing such songs as “Collide” by Howie Day and “Imagine” by John Lennon. He ended up winning the entire competition, becoming the youngest champion so far at 16 years old. Since then, Brynn Cartelli has become the youngest winner, at 15.

Sawyer is 21 years old now, and he’s still rocking his signature long hair and hats. You can follow him on Instagram to keep up with his career.
