Despite being eliminated on NBC's "The Voice" last week, Christian Cuevas managed to leave one celebrity fan in awe of his rousing performance of Israel Houghton's "To Worship You I Live."

"The Real" co-host Adrienne Houghton said Cuevas' performance of her husband's song left her inspired.

"Wow. Still in awe and inspired. Everyone knows that I absolutely love singing competition shows. But, last night I was completely blown away when Christian from #TeamAlicia on @nbcthevoice chose to perform a worship song," Adrienne said on an Instagram post last Tuesday.

"He could have chosen any song to sing. But instead, he decided to take that moment and worship God. To top it off, he chose my husband's song, 'To Worship You I Live,'" she added.

Cuevas' coach in the competition, R&B singer Alicia Keys, sang along to his performance last Tuesday. According to Adrienne, witnessing Keys sing along with Cuevas was "an incredible moment."

"I was so moved. Seeing @aliciakeys singing along. Seeing God at work on national television. Such an incredible moment," she said.

Israel Houghton himself also said on his own Instagram account how honored he was to witness the performance of his song.

"Came to support my friend, the incredible @christiancuevasmusic tonight @nbcthevoice. I'm so honored that he chose to sing one of my songs 'To Worship You I Live.' I love his humble heart and his willingness to honor God on any and all platforms," he said.

Soon after Cuevas was eliminated from the competition on Tuesday, Alicia Keys took to social media to let him know how much she admired his talent.

"I have been in awe of your talent since your blind audition. Thank you for your outpouring of light and love thru music. Y'all look out for what's to come from my brother," said Keys.
