Asher HaVon, who was coached by country music legend Reba McEntire, won season 25 of The Voice.

“Thank you for giving me such a safe place to be my authentic self,” HaVon, 31, told McEntire just before he was announced as the show’s winner. “Thank you for making me believe in myself, and I promise you I will never let you down.”

HaVon auditioned for The Voice with his version of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain,” which wowed coaches Chance the Rapper, Dan + Shay and McEntire. Once his Blind Audition came to an end, HaVon revealed that most of his singing background came from church. All of the judges praised his voice before HaVon ultimately made his choice.

“Chance, I love you, I really do. But I gotta choose Reba,” he said during the March 2024 episode. Three months later, he and McEntire took home the win.
