Getting a standing ovation from the coaches on The Voice is a very rare feat, but Kevin Hawkins did just that during his blind audition this week.
Over 45 years after Stevie Wonder released his chart-topping song 'Isn't She Lovely,' Hawkins belted out a stunning rendition of the 1976 hit and his vocals are something else.
As the middle school piano teacher gave his "Grammy performance," all four judges turned their chairs — Gwen Stefani was first, only 10 seconds in.

"Your voice, it sounds like a record. It sounds like a Grammy performance. Such amazing tone. I can tell that this is your absolute dream moment, and I’m so happy for you and you’re gonna shine on the stage. You’re incredible," Stefani said.
He also received praise from Camila Cabello, who said: "That vocal performance was flawless. Your riffs, your tone. I can tell that you have that performer and entertainer in you too, and I feel like you’re already somebody who has an idea of what they want to be."
We can't wait to see more from him!
