Natchitoches resident Deshawn Washington has taken his talent to "The Voice."

The 23 year old landed on Shakira's team after performing a version of the Sam Cooke hit "Twistin the Night Away".
Shakira was the only coach to pick Washington, but Usher regretted his decision, saying "damn, I'm stupid." Even Blake Shelton seemed disappointed that he didn't turn around for Deshawn.

Deshawn says he had to quit college to help take care of his family, but he wants to travel the world. He's proud of his hometown!
