Carter Rubin is in it to win it!

The 15-year-old vocal powerhouse joined forces with Pop songwriter Justin Tranter for an original new song, “Up From Here,” on Monday night’s The Voice finale.

The song gave coach Gwen Stefani “chills” while in the studio and impressed the No Doubt singer as well as her Voice cohorts.

“I can’t wait to see what happens [for you] after this show,” the soon-to-be Mrs. Shelton gushed. “Thank you for trusting me. You’re a beautiful person, in and out.”

Earlier in the show, Carter Rubin took the stage to deliver an incredible rendition of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”

“It’s not about the endpoint, it’s about the journey getting there,” Rubin said of the advice Stefani gave him throughout the season, adding, “This has been the time of my life.”

Stefani, who is preparing to wrap her fifth season as a coach on the popular singing competition, told him, “You might be the reason I win for the first time.”

Fans can vote for Carter Rubin by visiting the official The Voice voting website, casting a vote via The Voice‘s official app or voting from their Google Assistant. There is a limit of 10 votes per artist per method.
