Chicago's Julio Castillo wows 'The Voice' judges in Spanish
Julio Cesar Castillo, 21, has been singing mariachi his entire life, so it only made sense for him to pull those roots when he auditioned ofor NBC's "The Voice." In doing so, he became the first performer ever to sing entirely in Spanish on the show, and earned a spot on Blake Shelton's team. We talked to him about his audition, his mariachi influences, and being from Portage Park, where he still resides. "The Voice" begins its battle rounds at 7 p.m. Oct. 8 on NBC.
