Carter Rubin is this season’s winner of “The Voice.” Not only did he receive the title, but Rubin also got some words from Blake Shelton.
Shelton is the winningest coach on the hit singing show, but he was nothing but happy for Rubin and his fiancé Gwen Stefani.
“He was honestly super happy for me and Gwen. He said, ‘If I were to lose to anyone, I’m glad it’s you and Gwen. You could tell he was truly happy for us,” Rubin tells Entertainment Tonight.
Shelton’s team member, Jime Ranger, finished as this season’s runner-up, so it wasn’t a complete loss for the country music artist.
Carter Rubin is the Youngest ‘The Voice’ Winner
This 15-year-old wowed the coaches and America all season long on “The Voice.” So much that he went on to win this season’s title and become the youngest-ever male winner.
Rubin said that his time on the show was a literal dream come true.
“It means everything and more,” the singer says. “I’m a huge fan of the show, I’ve been watching the show forever. I was just thinking back to literally a year ago, I was watching Gwen Stefani on TV and I was joking about it with my family, like, ‘Imagine that I get on the show and get to work with her and sing a duet with her,’ and literally, my dreams came true.”
Gwen Stefani Coaches Rubin to Win
Stefani for sure has a handful of advice to share with her young champion. After all, the No Doubt frontwoman was just a teenager herself when her career began. The “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” singer even told Rubin that “this is the perfect time for me to start writing songs, and I completely agree.”
Rubin shares what he’s looking forward to in the future. He’s planning on becoming a student of the industry, which includes studying pop hitmaker Justin Tranter.
Additionally, Rubin wants to step up his style game. He admits that he gets inspiration from chart-toppers like Lewis Capaldi, Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, and Shawn Mendes.
“I plan on writing a lot of songs and getting in the studio and recording them, and once COVID is over I want to perform in front of live audiences again,” the New York native says. “I really miss the adrenaline you get from live performance.”
As a matter of fact, Carter Rubin was also given a handsome cash reward. However, he’s still letting the win sink in and doesn’t have a plan for his winnings yet.
