About Joshua Vacanti
He always loved singing growing up, but at around 8 years old, he developed a severe and chronic form of asthma. This medical condition often halted Joshua’s musical journey, causing obstacles and regular hospitalizations in his youth.
Medical professionals prescribed Vacanti with steroids to help fight the asthma complications, which caused him to gain weight and as a result, some of his classmates teased him for this. Vacanti struggled to find his place during his time in school, but eventually he found that safe haven in the community choir.
Vacanti continued his musical journey in his collegiate studies, and before he auditioned for The Voice this season, Vacanti would travel and perform with his wife on stage, as well as in their family worship band with Vacanti’s parents.
Outside Of Music
Vacanti works as a prevention educator where he tells kids about drug prevention and encourages them to set goals that they want to achieve. That’s one of the biggest drivers behind Joshua’s audition this season -- don’t forget to chase your own dreams.
