We all know not to judge a book by its cover, but what about when that book is covered in tattoos from head to toe and has ear gauges the size of silver dollars? Pierre Edel might look intimidating, but behind his tattoos and cold stare is a voice that could melt even the coldest hearts.
Pierre wowed the judges on a recent episode of The Voice: Ukraine with his rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” Any apprehensions the audience might have quickly fade as soon as the band plays that iconic opening guitar riff. One judge lets out an involuntary “whoa” before Pierre even sings a single note! And when he finally does start singing? It doesn’t take long for the judges to spin around in their chairs and take a look at the man behind that angelic voice.
Contestants like Pierre are what The Voice is all about. Society likes to tell us to judge people based on how they look, but that couldn’t be a worse way to go through life. Every person we meet is totally unique, with all kinds of passions and talents that they can’t wait to share with the world. If we choose not to listen to someone simply because they have a tattoo on their face, there’s no telling what we could miss out on. Thankfully, the audience on The Voice wasn’t too quick to judge, and they were lucky enough to hear Pierre do what he does best.
