DC Singer/Songwriter Owen Danoff Made a Splash on “The Voice”

Owen Danoff got a “four-chair turn” on the NBC show The Voice Tuesday, which means the former DC singer/songwriter had Pharrell Williams, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine all asking him to join their “teams” following his blind audition. Danoff chose Levine’s squad.
