NBC’s 'The Voice' Announces Winner, Javier Colon

Thursday, 30 Jun 2011 12:01 PM

With high ratings and a strong national following, NBC’s 'The Voice' has brought life back to televised singing competition. Last night, the show announced its Season One winner, a tearful Javier Colon, reports People Magazine.

The win lands Colon a coveted recording contract with Universal Republic Records, a $100,000 cash prize, and the lead spot in The Voice national singing tour. But most importantly, the win gives Colon a second chance.

In 2003, Colon went solo with a record deal on Capitol Records. He even scored a Billboard Hot 100 single called “Crazy.” But, Colon lost his record deal after his success dropped off quickly.

“I’ve been at this a long time, and it wears on you when you keep getting doors shut in your face, and you keep getting told you are not good enough to get another record deal and they decide not to, quote-unquote, waste their time on you. So this opportunity is amazing,” Colon told People.

Colon plans to use the cash prize to pay off school loans, put down payments on his house, and take his wife on a spa weekend as a ‘thank-you’ for her taking care of his two daughters while he pursued his dream on The Voice.
