‘The Voice’ Winner Todd Tilghman Previews Upcoming Christmas EP
Tilghman won the show on Team Blake Shelton in 2020, and he’s released a few new singles since then, in addition to a recent tour with fellow winner Jordan Smith.
Todd Tilghman Performs ‘O Holy Night’ Ahead of Christmas EP
Tilghman introduced his performance for CCM magazine by saying that “O Holy Night” is “easily the most requested Christmas song I ever get asked to sing, every year, since I was a kid.” He added that it’s “also one of my favorites.” You can hear it on his Christmas EP December 10.
The 43-year-old singer went on to perform the classic song with a simple acoustic backing, showing off the same gritty, country voice that won him the trophy last year. The performance goes from hushed, gentle tones to full-on belting.
Tilghman’s EP is titled Old Photos at Christmastime, which is also the title of an original song featured on the project. The singer announced on Instagram that he’ll also be playing “a string of intimate acoustic Christmas shows.” He’ll be releasing his cover of “O Come O Come Emmanuel” next Friday, November 26.
What Has Tilghman Been Up to Since Winning the Show?
Tilghman won The Voice at age 42, becoming the oldest winner in the show’s history. Since his time on the show, the singer has released a few original singles, including “Sandcastles,” “In a Heartache,” and “Jesus and You.”
The Season 18 winner also recently joined Season 9 champion Jordan Smith as supporting acts on Christian artist Rhett Walker’s The Gospel Song & Tailgatin’ Tour.
As Tilghman shared when he was on The Voice, he and his wife Brooke have eight children. In 2011, he became the lead pastor at a church in Meridian, Mississippi. You can keep up with his career by following him on Instagram, and mark your calendars for his Christmas EP on December 10.
