Brian Nhira stays alive

Adam Levine chose Brian Nhira to advance to the live rounds on “The Voice” starting Monday, April 11. Nhira sang Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” against Nate Butler.

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Pharrell,” said Nhira Monday night. “I’m just so excited.”

Miley Cyrus appeared as a guest coach and encouraged Nhira to go all out. Her advice paid off.

“Brian’s special,” said Levine. “He’s a wonderful singer and person. I can’t wait for Pharrell to cry because he gave me Brian.”
