Also raised singing gospel music is Calvin Lockett, who is from the Triangle area of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. He made it to Gwen Steffani's team with his take on the Temptations "Just My Imagination."

Jake Haldenvang from the Charlotte area also made it onto Team Gwen singing the Revivalists' "Wish I Knew You".
