LOS ANGELES - Pressure is on for Eagan native Nicholas David who takes the stage on national television again Monday night. He is one of the four remaining singers on NBC's "The Voice."
Retro sounds are in David's wheel house, from 70's soul to last week's interpretation of the timeless classic "Over the Rainbow."
"I lead with my heart, I think from my heart and I play and sing from my heart and I give my heart. So I think people are thirsty for that." David says.
David has come a long way, but he is up against stiff competition.
For Terry McDermott, a rocker from Aberdeen Scotland, his journey on American television has exceeded his expectations.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed myself and much more than I expected I would, frankly." McDermott says.
McDermott, 35, is the oldest of The Voice's four finalists.
Trevin Hunte is the youngest. At 18-years-old he has impressed the coaches with talent far beyond his years.
"I feel like my wheel house is power strong ballads, and I feel like with those songs, I can leave it all on the stage and give my best." Hunte says.
Fans have also taken to Cassadee Pope, who blends the worlds of pop, rock and country music.
"It's so gratifying. And it just makes all the sleepless nights and the time and effort put into this worth it." Pope says.
And for three of the singers, tonight's effort will mean a spot in the finals.
