Christian Singer on "The Voice"

The son of megachurch pastor Tony Evans appeared on NBC's The Voice Monday night. Anthony Evans was accompanied to the audition with Kirk Franklin and his father, who watched backstage. Evans sang Marvin Gaye's What's Going On? and Christina Aguilera picked him to work with. The celebrities on the show get to select a dozen singers each. Evans says, "The struggle I have as a Christian artist is people would say 'who is he? He needs to define himself as a gospel act or a contemporary Christian act. I wanted to define myself as Anthony Evans which is straight up the middle. 'The Voice' asked me to be myself and so that's the whole reason why I'm here." Here's the video of his audition.
