Shepherd Grad Impresses Judges on NBC's "The Voice"


A Shepherd University graduate scored big with judges last week on NBC’s, “The Voice.”

Shepherd University graduate, Paul Pfau impressed NBC’s, “The Voice” judges Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams, and Adam Levine of Maroon 5 last week in a blind audition.

Pfau told The Journal the audition was taped in November and says keeping it a secret until now has been “super hard.” He says he’s grateful for this opportunity and attributes his time at Shepherd and in Shepherdstown as part of his growth in music.

Pfau is originally from Texas, relocated to Maryland, and then attended and graduated from Shepherd University in 2010. He says he wants to go back to Shepherdstown and perform after his time on “The Voice.”

Pfau joined Team Pharrell and has faced off in his first “battle round” to stay on the show.
