Kanye West’s broken jaw inspired his breakout album “Through The Wire” — and now “The Voice” Season 3 contestant Aquile has a similar story to share. Before he got on stage, Aquile revealed that after getting punched in the face a few years ago, his jaw was wired shut — but even that didn’t stop him from performing!
On the show, Aquile chose “Your Song” for his blind audition, and he had us all swooning. Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine hit their red buttons at almost the same moment, to the delight of his family waiting backstage. Cee-Lo Green hit his button at the very last possible second as well — leaving Blake Shelton the sole “Dumb-dumb,” as Adam said.
Ultimately, Aquile joined Team Christina — the potential of performing a private concert was just too much to ignore.
