Dave Crosby is on his way to becoming a household name after his successful blind audition on The Voice. During his performance of “I Will Follow You Into The Dark”, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Miley Cyrus all turned their chairs hoping to land Dave on their team.
Crosby has willingly taken a backseat in recent years to his daughter, Claire Ryann, as he supported her climb to cuteness and fame with her viral covers on YouTube and Facebook, that have garnered over 500 million views.
Claire and her dad might be most recognized for when they teamed up on a duet of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, which almost single-handedly crashed the internet, leading to multiple appearances on the The Ellen Show.
Claire’s Disney covers have also spread far and wide, leading to a collaboration with Auli’i Cravalho, the voice of Moana, as the two were able to perform “How Far I’ll Go” on The Ellen Show.
With all of Claire’s success, it has been Dave behind the scenes recording and mixing the music, filming and editing the videos, and doing the marketing. He has turned Claire Ryann into a star.
Now it’s his turn to be in the spotlight.
After Dave’s performance, Adam Levine realized that Dave was the same person who had created viral videos with his daughter. The video of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” had a special impact on Adam, as someone sent him that video shortly after the birth of his child, and it brought him to tears.
Adam asked Claire to join her dad on the stage, and she sang beautifully while the crowd stood to their feet.
“You just melted the hearts of everyone in this country,” Adam said of the performance.
Miley Cyrus gushed, “I’m obsessed with her!”
“Dave, I want you on my team, but I really want to have her,” Blake Shelton told Dave. He responded by saying, “Story of my life.”
After being showered with praise, three of the judges, Blake, Miley, and Adam, begged Dave to join their teams. Dave decided to join Team Adam.
