Andy Cherry--a name and sound familiar to many in Christian music--appeared on Tuesday, Sept. 23, during the "blind auditions" segment of Season 7 of NBC's vocal competition The Voice.

Before his performance, Cherry shared on the show about his career in Christian music, his being dropped from his record label, and his wife that stayed close by his side. Cherry's audition song choice was the 1985 hit "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears. 

Throughout the performance, the judges' expressions stayed focused and thoughtful, but none of them pressed their "I Want You" buttons, which would have placed Cherry on one of four teams (Team Adam Levine, Team Gwen Stefani, Team Pharrell Williams or Team Blake Shelton). 

He finished the song with evidence of disappointment on his face, but seemed positive through the next few moments on screen. In the end, none of the judges turned for Cherry, but left him with critique and advice for his music-related future.

There's no doubt that remembering the names of every artist you hear on the radio is a difficult task, but remembering the uniqueness in their voice and lyrics is another story.

Cherry's most successful single, "Our God's Alive," hit the airwaves in Spring of 2012 and seemed to charm listeners' ears with its heavy, guitar-lead intro, and Cherry's one-of-a-kind tone. The song was in the top ten of two big-named Christian radio networks and became a favorite of many. The single was a follow up to his March 2012 album Nothing Left to Fear, which snagged him shows alongside artists such as Tenth Avenue North, Laura Story, Jimmy Needham, Matt Maher, and Trip Lee.

The album didn't have quite the success that was anticipated and Cherry was dropped from his record label, leaving "Our God's Alive" standing alone on national radio stations and fans disappointed. Since then, Cherry released an independent EP, City of Light, earlier this year, but it remains to be seen what the South Carolina native's next move will be.

"Thank so much for all the support!" Cherry posted to social media after the episode aired. "It was disappointing not to get a chair to turn, but I'm not done yet. God Bless you all."
