By age 10 he became the official pianist for his father’s church.

Influenced by artists such as Beyoncé, Prince, John Legend and Stevie Wonder, Kevin decided to continue his musical education by attending the University of North Texas (UNT) where he received his Bachelor’s in Vocal Performance and Music Education. During his time at UNT he placed second at NATS and received awards for outstanding performances for UIL Solo and Ensemble.

After he graduated, he became the music director at his dad’s church. While there he’s sung background for artists such as KeKe Wyatt and Mario and has opened for Dallas legend Erykah Badu. Kevin has also been featured in Klyde Warren Park’s summer artists series and headlined the 44th Harambee Festival in Dallas.

Kevin Hawkins The Voice

Kevin Hawkins is a contestant on Season 22 of The Voice. The 28-year-old Lancaster native performed Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” during The Voice Blind Auditions.

Gwen Stefani turned her chair only to be followed by John Legend just moments later. But in a twist of events, Stefani used her Block of the season on Legend, meaning Hawkins was prevented from picking the “All of Me” singer as his Coach. Camila Cabello and, eventually, Blake Shelton followed, and Hawkins had each star vying for him.

“A piano teacher who sings Stevie Wonder, and I don’t have a chance to fight for him,” Legend said. “I wish I could work with you, Kevin.”

In response, Stefani joked, “I just wanted to make sure you got the right Coach…Your voice, it sounds like a record, it sounds like a Grammy performance, such an amazing tone. I can tell that this is your absolute dream moment, and I’m so happy for you, and you’re ‘gonna shine on this stage.”

Shelton had his own technique when it came to winning over Hawkins. “I’m here to tell you that I’m the next closest thing to John Legend on this particular season,” he said. “Come on, Kevin, shock people!”

In the end, Hawkins went with an unexpected choice and chose Team Blake.
