Way to go, Javier Colon!

Born in Connecticut, this singer/songwriter is the first-ever champion on The Voice.

The child of a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother, Colon attended Frank Scott Bunnell High School and pursued a degree in music education from the University of Hartford's Hartt School. He has a bright future ahead of him now, earning a recording deal through his efforts on this NBC hit.
