Before The Voice
"Growing up as a young gay man was not easy for Johnny. He felt a lot of pressure from his conservative Dominican and Puerto Rican family and insensitive peers. His voice was the one thing he was confident in, and it was this confidence that helped him come out to his family at 18. Now more comfortable with his future, Johnny has been running karaoke nights and participating in the music scene in New York City. Johnny is currently singing for his #1 fan and supporter - his grandma, whose breast cancer recently resurfaced."
- Coach Adam Levine used his 'block' on coach Kelly Clarkson, preventing her from vouching for Johnny onto her team
