Cresson native Josh Gallagher comes in 4th place on NBC's 'The Voice'
LOS ANGELES - Cresson native Josh Gallagher's magical run came to end. Gallagher came in fourth place on NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday night.
It has been a whirlwind since Gallagher auditioned for the show. He said his success on the show wouldn't be possible without the support of his hometown.
"I said it last week and I'll say it again, I can't do it without you guys," Gallagher said. "You all got me through to the final 4. You all made me a finalist on 'The Voice' which is a very real thing. Not a whole lot of people can say that they've done that.
"Just to get this far I'm happy, I'm completely happy. Winning would've been awesome, but it is what it is. I couldn't be more happy for (the winner) Sundance, honestly.
"I thank you all for everything you did, thank you guys," Gallagher said.
Back in Cresson, family and friends once again gathered at the Sankertown VFW to support Gallagher. Even though he didn't win, they said they couldn't have been more proud of how far he's come in his career.
"I'm so proud of Josh. He did awesome and finished fourth out of 40,000, what more could you ask for?" said Mikey Longhy, boyfriend of Josh's sister.
Gallagher will hold two sold-out shows at the Mishler Theatre in Altoona on Jan. 28.
