WARREN, NJ – A self-described “East Coast Boy” from Elizabeth had Adam Levine standing on his chair applauding Monday night on The Voice, during its Blind Auditions and Warren residents were home applauding too.

As Manny Cabo, 45 years old, sang “Here I Go Again,” Levine sang along with him while Shelton played air guitar. Afterwards, Cabo found himself in the middle of a battle between all four judges, Levine, Shelton, Pharrell Williams, and Gwen Stefani, who all claimed him.

Said Levine who rang the bell first, “Hearing you sing brought me to a place where everything started for me. This is going to sting if I don’t get you.” He did.

Warren resident Michael Aprile caught up with Cabo last week about growing up in Elizabeth and all of the support from family and friends. Aprile is an accomplished art director/designer and says he's "always been a fan" of Cabo's work in photography, apparel designs, and music. See http://www.akamannycabo.com

Cabo told Aprile," Well, all I can say is I'm truly grateful for all the heartfelt comments and genuine comments of appreciation towards all of my artistic pursuits. It's overwhelming and humbling at the same time and I'm avoiding sleep just so I can reciprocate my appreciation to all of my dedicated supporters. I'm just grateful that they finally see the real me and what I've always and diligently strived for as an artist and that is to inspire as many people to do the same... and that is to always pursue your deepest desires and with perseverance those desires will manifest  themselves at some point or other.  The key is to stay focused, meditate, and welcome the frustrations in life because as I always tell everyone," The contrast in life will always show you the clarity of what you seek. I am about love and peace and the more my voice is heard then the more I can spread it globally."

At home, Cabo made his family, friends, and neighbors proud. Said Mayor J. Christian Bollwage, "The talent, control and charisma displayed by Manny Cabo during last night's episode of The Voice was impressive. His high energy performance and ability to captivate the crowd, coaches and viewing audience was inspiring. I, along with many of our residents, will be watching all season and wish him the best of luck on Team Adam."

Cabo posted this Facebook comment to his growing number of fans. “Everyone from the bottom of my heart, I am truly grateful for all your comments and uplifting words of encouragement. I will do my best to represent all of you in this journey.”

Stay tuned.
