Jesse Campbell blew the audience away on The Voice

It is not often that you get to watch network television and actually know someone that is performing, but last night I had that rare opportunity. Jesse Campbell appeared on the NBC show The Voice and blew the audience away. Campbell has a voice that is a true gift from God. Last night he mentioned that he was from Maywood, Illinois, but I had the opportunity to hear him at a church on the west side of Chicago. His father WJ Campbell pastored St. James Church of God in Christ. Jesse would often lead songs with the choir and at a young age it was apparent that the boy had a “gift”. In the church far too often people are hailed for being gifted and it is not the truth, but in this case it was not people paying deference to a PK (Pastor’s Kid) it was genuine. It was heartwarming to hear his testimony and truly gratifying to hear his voice. He does have a voice and it was wonderful to see him get the opportunity to showcase it on a wider stage.
