OPELOUSAS–Ignatious Carmouche is “The Voice on Snapchat” winner of Season 12.
Carmouche, who is from Houston and now lives in Opelousas, made it through the first round of blind auditions and secured a spot on Team Jennifer by singing “Latch.”
In January, Carmouche submitted a video of himself singing “Pretty Wings” by Maxwell. Never in a million years did he think he’d make it, but out of 20,000 submissions he ended up winning with Team Adam. By winning, he was granted a chance to audition at the Season 13 Blind Auditions and ended up making it on Team Jennifer.
Carmouchegrew up in a very religious household, which is why he grew up singing in church. Being a shy kid, he would sing with his back toward the congregation, but as he got older his confidence grew.
He eventually started playing the piano, alto-saxophone and finally took singing seriously. Late last year, he got his ministry license and co-founded his own music ministry.
Carmouche said he is ready to show the world the power of his voice outside of the church by being on “The Voice.”
