A Kiwi teen has stunned the judges and audience with not just his incredible blind audition on
, but his heartbreaking journey to get to where he is today.
Hoseah Partsch, 17, appeared on The Voice Australia singing Almost is Never Enough by Ariana Grande.
The Auckland-born singer received a standing ovation from judges Seal, Delta Goodrem, Boy George and Kelly Rowland.
While he sparkled on stage, it is his story of hardship and that left viewers with teary eyes.
The Kiwi teen revealed he grew up living in one bedroom with his entire family, often having nothing on the table.
But it's that hardship he said that has driven him to want to succeed.
Talking to 9Honey, Partsch said despite having very little, he still has a positive outlook on life.
"Me and my family have been through a lot together. There's been ups and downs for me and my family - money-wise, food on the table. But myself and my family are very happy, we get to see each other every day and it's just a blessing to see smiles on their faces, even though we struggle," he told 9Honey.
Partsch said he struggled at school, with music the only thing he felt he excelled at - but he now hopes his new found success can provide his family a more comfortable lifestyle.
He revealed his mother "Queenie" and his grandparents are his biggest inspiration and the reason he's so determined to succeed.
"Music is what I wanted to do my whole life. That's the dream... My family is very proud of me doing something that I love to do... I'm very blessed to have their love and support.
Following his performance, Boy George compared Partsch to Stevie Wonder, while Kelly Rowland told him "You're the reason I sing".
Partsch chose Boy George as his coach and mentor to take him through further rounds.
He is tipped to go far in the competition, with many viewers saying he has a bright future regardless of how far he progresses in The Voice.
