The newly crowned winner of The Voice said during a press conference Tuesday night that he wants to get back to his farm in upstate New York and take a bit of a chill pill. “I do not want to move to L.A.!” said Fredericks, a 16-year-old folk singer who had Pharrell Williams as mentor on the NBC show.
