SALE resident and singer Jaxson Cornell, 23, has progressed to ‘The Callback’s round of The Voice on the Seven Network after his successful blind audition that saw him chosen by judge and coach Guy Sebastian.

Mr Cornell’s blind audition aired Tuesday August 15, with The Callbacks round to air on Monday night.

An untrained musician, Mr Cornell said he was very nervous before he took to the stage for national television with a cover of ‘I Fall Apart’ by Post Malone.

“I don’t know if I can sing – never had singing lessons,” he said.

Mr Sebastian was the only coach to turn the chair, locking Mr Cornell in for his team.

“I am shocked I am the lone ranger of coaches,” he said.

His reaction to Mr Cornell’s performance: “incredibly honest, a great storytelling voice”.

Mr Cornell’s brother and sister were on the sidelines. Their mother passed away in 2019 and never got to see him perform on stage

“Mum will be watching me,” Mr Cornell said.

The Gippsland Times’ chat with Jaxson Cornell will be in this Tuesday’s issue.
