The Voice has had many contestants on its stage, but so far just 13 were able to win. We’ve previously talked about some of the show’s champions and their success stories, but here is what happened to each of the Season 1 to 13 winners.

Before the show, Javier Colon was a member of The Derek Trucks Band. The first winner of The Voice had a strong start. He turned all four judges’ chairs with his rendition of “Time After Time” and was actually one of only two people who got all the judges to do so.

I just remember the sigh of relief,” Colon told AXS when asked about his audition. “I was so pent up leading up to the audition so when it was over, I could finally just relax. I didn’t have to try to impress anyone anymore, I could just talk to the four amazing people in front of me.”

In the end, he performed “Landslide” with Stevie Nicks and was able to win the grand prize and a Universal Republic recording contract. After the show, Colon released an album called Come Through for You, which ended up selling 46,000 copies. He then did recaps of the show’s next season on Inside Voice with Javier Colon. 

In 2016, he came out with another album titled Gravity, with Concord Records. Colon co-wrote every song on the album.
