Pastor Todd Tilghman: Winning THE VOICE is Validating, Humbling

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Pastor Todd Tilghman of Mississippi took home THE VOICE victory this week after slaying his “I Can Only Imagine” performance.

“It’s really validating, but it’s also really humbling at the same time. It’s hard to explain,” said Tilghman, a father of 8.

Tilghman first stunned judges when all four chairs turned during his blind audition. Yet before he hit TV, he was known for his presence in the pulpit.

Country Living reported, Since 2011, Todd has been the lead pastor of Cornerstone Church in his home town of Meridian, Mississippi, where he grew up. While Todd has sung in church in the past, he revealed on The Voice that he’s never really performed professionally before making his debut on the show.”

Tilghman was on Team Blake [Shelton].

The pair even sang a duet together, “Authority Song,” from their homes.

The newly crowned winner said of the country crooner, “Blake is also notorious for helping people on his team after the show. And I need that. I don’t know anything about the music world. So, I need that. It’s been great. He feels like a close friend, he really does.”

Tilghman’s time on THE VOICE made an impact on the judges. After one of his songs in earlier episodes of the season, the judges shared their experiences with church.

Kudos to Tilghman for shining the light of Jesus!
