Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 5) — A Filipino singer earned a rare four-chair turn in the blind auditions of award-winning American reality singing competition "The Voice."

Jej Vinson, who is currently based in Los Angeles, California, impressed the coaches of the show's 16th season with his acoustic rendition of Drake's "Passionfruit."

"I think everybody here is probably a little bit nervous talking to you right now because we all feel like we're looking at the winner of The Voice this season," said country singer and coach Blake Shelton after his performance.

Vinson, however, ultimately picked pop singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson as his coach.

"Jej is someone that I hope is on the radio someday because we need it. There aren't singers like that," said Clarkson, who had won the last two seasons of The Voice.

The Voice also features Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and award-winning singer-producer John Legend as coaches.
