From the unforgettable performances to the tough eliminations to even the tearful moments, The Voice season 25 was certainly the one to watch.

During the two-night finale, the top five contestants—Asher HaVon, Josh Sanders, Karen Waldrup, Bryan Olesen and Nathan Chester—took center stage to deliver some of the best performances fans like myself have seen all season. But in the end, there could only be one winner. And the winner of The Voice season 25 is…Asher HaVon!

HaVon (who was a part of Team Reba) was crowned the winner after he performed Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald’s 1986 hit song “On My Own” with his coach. 

The 31-year-old singer initially left a strong impression on the judges when he performed Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” during the Blind Auditions. 

Reba McEntire, who joined The Voice season 24 as a coach, was completely blown away by HaVon’s talent. “Asher, what an incredible voice you have. Your range, your power, I couldn't wait to turn around and see what you look like. And not disappointing at all. Way to go,” she said, according to People

Even Chance the Rapper was thoroughly impressed. He said, “I’m not gonna play with them, man. I instantly turned around because I could tell you trying to win this competition and you should. Everything that you did was phenomenal. It was next-level. I was blown away by it.”

And win the competition, he did. 

Prior to auditioning for The Voice, HaVon gained recognition when he performed as part of a choir in front of President Barack Obama to mark the 50th anniversary of the Selma Montgomery marches in 2015.

Congratulations on your big win, Asher!
