INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) -- An Indianapolis singer wowed the judges on NBC's "The Voice" Monday night.

Josh Kaufman, 38, got all four judges to turn their chairs as he sang "One More Try" by George Michael.

"'One More Try' is a love song, but it's kind of one more try for me. This is by far the biggest opportunity that I've ever had," Kaufman said on the show. "And it's not just for me, it's for my family, it's for my kids, my wife. Where I'm at in my life, I need this to happen now."

Adam Levine turned his chair just four seconds into Kaufman's vocals, followed seconds later by Blake Shelton. Coaches Shakira and Usher followed later in the performance.

"You're amazing. You're awesome. Incredible," Shelton said after the performance.

After pitches from the coaches, Kaufman decided to join Levine's team.

"Josh Kaufman could win this whole thing. That guy is so good and has an amazing voice," Levine said.

"I've been playing gigs for a long time, doing other things to make ends meet and this just feels like the beginning of something that could be really huge," said Kaufman, who tutors students to support his music career.

"The Voice" continues Tuesday at 8 p.m. on Channel 13. There is no word at this time when Kaufman's next performance will air.
