Meet David M Santos, Wendy Moten Husband

According to Wendy, the two have contemplated getting married multiple times, but she was still “pursuing new dreams.” Well, maybe after Wendy’s successful run on The Voice, the lovebirds might walk the aisle. Even if that’s not the case, the two were already husband/wife in relations, they didn’t need any official stamp to prove it.
“He’s my biggest cheerleader,” Wendy expressed her happiness about finding her future husband.
The duo has attended several interviews, toured around the world, and shared most of their musical journey. Even during the 2020 pandemic, the two chose to spend the lockdown in their cozy room, practicing music.
And the practice has reflected well for both the couple. David said that he has certainly “become a better piano player”, and Wendy is now The Voice Season 21 top 8 contestant.
The news about Wendy getting into the top 8, came a week after the November 29 episode of The Voice. In case you don’t remember, it was the ep where Wendy tripped over a speaker and fell following a live performance with Blake Shelton’s team. Though the fall didn’t look that bad, given she was able to get up and speak on the mic, it was later revealed that she broke her elbow and fractured her left hand.
Before participating on The Voice, she was signed as a recording artist for 5 long years, in which she even opened for Michael Bolton and had a song chart on the Billboard Hot 100. After the contract ended, she and Julio Iglesias then spent the next 15 years touring the world.
