Billy Gilman Earns Four-Chair Turn on “The Voice”

Remember little Billy Gilman, the youngster who made his country music debut at the ripe old age of 11 with “One Voice” in 2000. Well, he’s back, and his avenue for re-entry into the music industry is none other than NBC’s “The Voice.”

Billy earned a four-chair turn-around. He ultimately chose Adam Levine as his coach. Tune into “The Voice” to see how far Billy will go.
