It was a truly soul-stirring moment, hearing Todd Tilghman on The Voice sing MercyMe’s ‘I Can Only Imagine’. And the stunning performance helped the Mississippi pastor clinch the number one spot in the contest!
This inspiring tune is the best-selling Christian song of all time. And hearing it sung on National television was so powerful!
Originally released in 1999, the MercyMe hit remains a staple in church services today. There's no doubt that this song has truly stood the test of time and it even inspired a film of the same name.
‘Surrounded by You glory
What will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus
Or in awe of You be still
Will I stand in your presence
Or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine'
Pastor Shares His God-Given Talent On TV
When we first met Todd Tilghman on The Voice, he was a nervous wreck. But his hearing his blind audition of ‘We've Got The Night' from Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, there was absolutely no reason for all those nerves.
As if his performance wasn't impressive enough, Todd revealed that he is actually a pastor with eight kids at home. Originally, all four judges fought for Todd, but he ultimately chose to become a part of Team Blake.
Throughout the season, Todd has continued to showcase his incredible talent and love for the Lord. Because of the COVID-19, this season of The Voice has had contestants performing from home.
This proved no obstacle for Todd as he was crowned the ultimate winner after a soul-stirring rendition of ‘I Can Only Imagine.' We've been rooting for Todd the whole competition and this pastor definitely deserves all the accolades.
