Tulsa, OK native Brian Nhira went head-to-head with teammate Abby Celso, singing a duet of “Sugar” by Maroon 5. Abby beat Brian, and Pharrell named her the winner of the battle, but Adam pushed his button moments later and stole Brian. Brian’s parents moved from Zimbabwe to the United States 30 years ago. When he was young, his parents worked as traveling pastors and took Brian and his three siblings all over Oklahoma and Africa to work with their ministry, which is where Brian started singing. He attended Oral Roberts University and served as a worship leader for up to 3,500 people in a single service. Recently, Brian has gone back to Africa to work with his parents’ ministry, “Hope for All Nations,” visiting impoverished children and orphans in Zimbabwe and Uganda.
