A MISSISSIPPI PASTOR

Todd is not only a great singer, but he also doubles as a great Christian leader. During his blind audition, Tilghman revealed that he served as the lead pastor for "Cornerstone Church," a church located in Mississippi.

While this might come as a surprise, it was quite understandable that Todd had formerly sung at church. There's no doubt that this middle-aged man has blessed his congregation over the years!

A HIGH SCHOOL LOVE STORY

Before the finale episode of "The Voice," Tilghman's wife, Brooke, opened up about her love story with the singer. In an Instagram post, the mother of eight revealed that they had been together since they were young.

Brooke also explained that despite what many said, she and Todd always believed they would end up together. She wrote: "We chose not to listen to most of the more logical folks ?and go after some of the wildest things and guess what....they ALL came true."

HIS SON WAS ON NBC'S "MAKING IT"

Before Tilghman competed on the just concluded singing show, his eldest child, Eagan, had also appeared on another reality show, "Making It."

The 20-year man rose to the spotlight in 2017 after he dressed up his little brother as a character from the hit horror film "IT." Although Todd's win was a significant highlight in the final episode, there were also other remarkable moments from the show.

With CeeLo Green, Shakira, and Bebe Rexha opening the show with an energetic performance of Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open The Door," and John Legend's soulful rendition of " Where Every Knows Your name," fans were treated to a fantastic season finale.
