Say it ain’t so! Last night, viewers of NBC’s The Voice voted off Park Heights native Davon Fleming. The proud Baltimore resident made local headlines back in September when he wowed the judges with his rendition of Amy Winehouse’s “Me and Mr. Jones” and quickly became a fan-favorite on team Jennifer Hudson with his effortless singing during every performance week to week.
After a stellar performance on Monday night of “Gravity” by John Mayer, and an unbelievable rendition of The Weeknd’s “Earned It” with Brooke Simpson on team Miley Cyrus, Fleming was in the bottom for the second week in a row. He was ultimately eliminated from the competition and, to put it mildly, fans weren’t too pleased.

Tonight’s “Voice” proves intonation-challenged, non-musical, other-worldly mutants possess cell phones with voting apps.— Ken DePeal (@RealKenDePeal) December 13, 2017

Although his fans were saddened by the results, in typical Davon Fleming fashion, he thanked and encouraged his supporters with this uplifting message.
