The viewing public has chosen 23-year old Craig Lucas from Elsies River as the winner of The Voice South Africa season 2. The announcement was made at the end of this week’s showstopper grand finale which was broadcast live on M-Net and M-Net City from the Mosaiek Teatro in Fairland, Johannesburg. With Craig’s victory, Parlotones front man Kahn Morbee also clinched the title of winning coach for the second year in a row. 

More than 1.6 million votes – an all-time record for The Voice SA – were cast in the dramatic final week of voting during which seven incredible singers competed for the show’s grand prize. In the end, Craig beat versatile vocalist and runner-up Josh Ansley (31) as well as Samantha Leonard (24), Caroline Grace Brussow (31), PJ Pretorius (26), Fatman (41) and Luke Lovemore (23). 

Craig, who was one of the audience favourites right from the start, made his first foray into singing on stage with his soulful The Voice SA Blind Audition of “House of The Rising Sun”. While music has always been his passion he first had to keep his promise to his mother – to complete his studies. The new Voice of South Africa now holds an honours degree in Finance from the University of Cape Town. During each round of the competition Craig wowed the audience with his unique interpretations of popular songs, demonstrating why coach Kahn called him “the love child of John Legend and Freddy Mercury”. 

On top of nabbing a coveted record deal from Universal Music South Africa, Craig walked off with the following fabulous prizes from The Voice SA sponsors:

Deloitte and Touche independently computed the voting figures for The Voice SA and these stats will be made available to the public later this week.
