He did it! Asher HaVon was declared the winner of season 25 of The Voice during the finale episode on May, 21, 2024.

Who Is The Voice’s Asher HaVon?

Asher HaVon is a talented singer who won season 25 of The Voice. He chose Reba McEntire as his coach after getting chair turns from her, Chance the Rapper and Dan + Shay during the blind auditions.

Reba kept Asher on her team throughout the battle and knockout rounds, which earned him a spot in the playoffs. He advanced to the quarterfinals, where the public’s vote helped him land in the semifinals (top 9). Asher then gave an incredible performance of Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” and earned enough viewer votes to become a finalist in the top 5. His finale performances then helped him receive the most votes, making him the winner of the season.

Asher is from Selma, Alabama, and has been singing since he was a child. His music is a blend of pop, R&B and soul, and he credits his mother with pushing him to pursue music. In addition to singing, Asher is also a songwriter and has spent years perfecting his craft.
