Javier Colon

The Voice USA, mentored by Adam Levine.

BackgroundEdit

Before the show, Colon had released two albums and one EP. He had previously been signed by Capitol Records and had even started his own independent record label after being let go by Capitol.

The VoiceEdit

Colon tried out for the show, singing the Cyndi Lauper classic "Time After Time". His audition got all four coaches-Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera-to turn around for him. He chose Levine as his mentor.

During his time on the show, Colon showcased his smooth vocals on songs such as "Fix You" by Coldplay and "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan.

Colon won The Voice on June 29, 2011, beating out former Meg & Dia lead singer and fan favorite Dia Frampton.

Post The VoiceEdit

Colon released his first single, "Stitch by Stitch", after his victory. The song, which he had performed on the show, debuted and peaked at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. His first post-Voice album, Come Through For You, was released on November 21, 2011. However, the album didn't do well, having sold 46,000 copies as of June 2013.

Leaving record labelEdit

On June 7, 2012, Colon announced that he had parted ways with Universal Republic Records, citing lack of label support as the reason.

New label Edit

On September 29, 2014, the Concord Music Group announced that they had signed Colon to a record deal. His fourth album, Gravity, was released on April 14, 2016.
