Since appearing on The Voice, Carter has released two original singles. “Up From Here” and “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” with Stefani. Even Blake Shelton gave Carter a shoutout during a radio interview. The coach stated that Carter has the potential for a massive career beyond The Voice, and I can agree.

The Singer on The Voice

Before appearing on The Voice, the Shoreham, New York resident received inspiration from his grandfather, a guitarist and backup vocalist for Jay and the Americans. Carter also loved to sing and play music with his older brother Jack, who has autism. The siblings would sing together at their family’s autism foundation, which surprises families with trips to amusement parks. Additionally, the singer would perform at various school musicals and community events.

On season 19, Carter took The Voice stage at the age of 14. He has the distinction of being the youngest male winner and second youngest winner overall. Carter is also responsible for Team Gwen’s first win on the series. After the Blind Audition, Carter fought vigorously throughout the competition.


In the Knockouts round, the singer won over Chloé Hogan and advanced to the next stage. During the Live Playoffs, Carter performed Mariah Carey’s “Hero” and won the public vote. In the final round, Carter performed Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” as well as his original song “Up From Here.”
