Dan Shafer was in a number of bands growing up, then got into recording jingles, for everything from beverage companies to TV shows, including Transformers. When his son turned 11, the family found out he had Crohn’s Disease and Dan had to get a job that offered insurance, so he became a salesman for a beverage company. Fast forward to 2017 and Dan was selected to perform on season 11 of NBC's The Voice, an opportunity to pick up music where he left off 30 years ago. Blake Shelton picked Shafer as a team member and he advance to the battle rounds. The videos of his performances on The Voice have been viewed several million times on YouTube.

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand,
that He may lift you up in due time.
Cast your anxiety on Him because He cares for you."
