Closely following the unveiling of his collaboration with adidas, Pharrell Williams has officially been named as a coach for The Voice‘s upcoming seventh season. “It’s been a huge year for Pharrell, with recognition for his contribution in the world of music — the Despicable Me franchise soundtracks, his Oscar-nominated song “Happy” and his Grammy-winning collaboration with Daft Punk on the breakout dance hit “Get Lucky.” His dominance in record sales in 2014, coupled with his incomparable accomplishments in the world of fashion and design, make him an irresistible addition to The Voice family,” NBC boss Paul Telegdy said in a statement. “He has already made a considerable impact as a mentor, drawing on an impressive track record as both a producer and performer. It is a perfect fit for The Voice as we evolve and reach for new heights with this franchise.” Season seven of The Voice is expected to debut in the fall.
