Worship Leader Chris Blue WINS 'The Voice' Singing Competition

Worship leader and gospel vocalist Chris Blue has WON 'The Voice' season 12, after spending a lot of the competition performing worship tracks. Blue, worship leader from Knoxville, Tenn, performed original song Money on You; a duet with Keys of Prince's Diamonds and Pearls;  and Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation, on Monday's performance finale, according to USA Today

Then, on Tuesday he performed Everybody Hurts with Usher, before being announced the winner. Blue, a committed Christan, took to twitter to thank God. Plus, he sees the gift of $100,000 as a true blessing, as he can now give his fiancee the "wedding she desires." His partner Stephanie has been battling cancer. 

"My fiancée, she called me in tears about a month ago, because we just did not have the money" to afford a nice wedding, he said. " We had to take a lot of things away from our already-stripped-down wedding. We didn't even have wedding (invitations). Couldn't afford it. The church wasn't even going to be decorated. Couldn't afford it."

Now, Stephanie is in for a truly memorable day. 

"I'd love to have Alicia (Keys) fly out, and we'd sing (Prince's) Diamonds and Pearls to my fiancee,"said Blue.
