Todd Tilghman, a pastor from Mississippi, was crowned winner of “The Voice” Tuesday night. He included in his finale performance MercyMe’s crossover hit “I Can Only Imagine."

He tweeted after his win, "I wish I knew how to say thank you. And I wish y’all knew how much I respect and admire my new friends and fellow artists/contestants on @NBCTheVoice. I don’t know how long it’ll take me to process, but I sure am #grateful for every moment."

The lead pastor of Cornerstone Church in Meridian made his way to the top on season 18 after advancing from nine singers. Tilghman, who was on Team Blake, meaning he’s coached by country star Blake Shelton, first performed the new single “Long Way Home.”

His performance, which was done remotely due to pandemic restrictions, was praised as “incredible” by Shelton.
