Struggling father performs Cyndi Lauper classic on “The Voice,” covers everyone in goosebumps

Javier Colon was no stranger to the music business. The American singer-songwriter, known for his “acoustic soul” style of music had worked with lots of musicians and was a member of EmcQ and The Derek Trucks Band before going solo.
He was even signed to Capital Records from 2002 to 2006, before he was dropped from the label. This experience was heartbreaking for him, especially because he was trying to support his family. He then started his own label called Javier Colon Music. He’s played with Joss Stone, Darius Rucker, the Indigo Girls, and Stevie Nicks.
But it wasn’t until his appearance on The Voice in 2011 that he made his mark in the mainstream. Javier stated in his interview prior to the audition that as a father, his kids meant everything to him. He said that musicians work week to week and month to month and that some months are good and others are not as good. He was auditioning on “The Voice” so that he could provide security to his family.

Colon auditioned for the show and played acoustic guitar and sang Cyndi Lauper’s classic ballad, Time After Time. Lauper recorded the song on her debut album, She’s So Unusual, and released it as a single in January 1984. It became her first number-one hit in the U.S. The song is a reference to the 1979 science fiction film by the same name.
Colon quickly wowed judges Adam Levine and CeeLo with his rendition as they simultaneously hit their buzzers during his performance. Christina Auguleria hit her buzzer shortly after. But there was one judge who needed convincing.

Blake Shelton was on the fence and didn’t seem to be as impressed with the performance as the other judges were. Levine was shocked and kept looking over at Shelton to try and convince him to hit the buzzer.
Even host Carson Daly couldn’t believe it, “Blake, you’re an idiot,” he said.

Eventually, Colon was able to win Shelton over as well. Shelton even ended up giving him a standing ovation. You can watch the performance that leads to his victory below.
