I remember being impressed by Chase’s first audition. Not just his voice, but his lyrics are really good! He reminds me of a mix between Ed Sheeran and Jason Mraz. An early Jason Mraz though, songs like “Wordplay” or “The Remedy.”

Chase’s audition was so impressive, guest judge DJ Khaled used his ‘Golden Buzzer’ sending him straight thru to the live round.
