DeShawn Washington eliminated from 'The Voice'

Posted: Updated:

NATCHITOCHES, LA. (KALB News Channel 5) – Natchitoches resident "sent home" from NBC talent program.

Round two of competition was the last for Natchitoches resident DeShawn Washington who won a spot on Team Shakira last month on NBC's hit talent show "The Voice".

Washington had to perform with team member Dani Moz during what the show calls "the battle round".  Celebrity judge Shakira chose to keep Moz on her team, sending Washington home.

"I will never give up on my dream. Just because I'm off  the show doesn't mean anything. God has other plans in store for me. I appreciate all of the love and support from my family and friends," Washington said.

Last month, Shakira chose Washington to be on her team after hearing his rendition of Sam Cooke's "Twistin' the Night Away", which is still available on iTunes for $1.29.

Washington, 23, is the son of Gwendolyn Ann and Siman Joe Washington and is a graduate of Natchitoches Central High School.
