Rep. Sewell: Mr. Speaker, I rise to congratulate Selma's own Asher HaVon for winning season 25 of ‘The Voice.’

A native of my hometown of Selma, Alabama, Asher got his start singing in the church and even performed for President Obama during his visit for the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March. 

Throughout this season on ‘The Voice,’ Asher's outstanding vocal abilities have taken America by storm.

His first place win makes him not only the first Alabamian to win ‘The Voice,’ but also the first openly LGBTQ person to earn such a title. 

I ask my colleagues to join me in congratulating the one, the only, Asher HaVon of Selma, Alabama, for his first place finish as the winner of ‘The Voice.’

We in Selma are so proud of you and we can't wait to see everything that you will continue to achieve.

We are indeed Selma strong.
