Indianapolis dad, 38, wins big on NBC's The Voice

Thirty-eight-year-old Jewish soul singer Josh Kaufman won Season 6 of NBC's The Voice singing competition May 20 with a show-stopping version of Stevie Wonder's Signed, Sealed, Delivered.

The Florida-born Kaufman, whose father is Jewish, now lives in Indianapolis with his wife and three children and supports himself with local music gigs and SAT tutoring.

The bespectacled, fedora-wearing Kaufman was part of Team Usher on The Voice, having been stolen away from Team Adam, led by Adam Levine, lead vocalist of  the pop rock group Maroon 5.

Beating out challengers Jake Worthington and Chrsitina Grimmie in the final, he became the first "stolen" contestant to win the reality competition.

Below is a video of Kaufman singing Get Her Back with mega-pop star Robin Thicke.
