The Voice top 8 contestants were revealed on Dec 1, 2021, and Joshua Vacanti made it to the list. One of the two remaining artists from team John Legend, Joshua’s chances at winning the show even looked stronger than ever.
But did you know he was married? Yes, his wife Sam Olewnik was cheering from their home as his name was announced. This Joshua Vacanti Bio explores all about their relationship and also sheds light on Joshua’s parents and height.
Who Is Joshua Vacanti Wife, Sam Olewnik?
Joshua Vacanti started dating his wife Sam Olewnik before 2016, and the two went on to get engaged in Jun 2018. A year later, the couple then exchanged vows on November 29, 2019, in an intimate wedding ceremony.
On their second wedding anniversary, Joshua took it to her IG to write, “Happy Anniversary bubs. I got your back, you got mine.”
If you haven’t noticed, Joshua often referred to Sam as his “bubs.”
Also, during his time on The Voice, Joshua made an IG post sharing that he was missing his wife, captioned, “Lucky(+ missing my bubs)”
As of 2021, the duo looked happiest and was in love more than ever. They shared a passion for singing, and maybe this was also the secret of their happy married life. The last we saw the pair, they were recording the track “I’m you”, written by Doug Sylvester, Phil Jackson, and Bucy boy.
Also, at the time they were content singing at worship services at the Chapel at Crosspoint and the Chapel at Lockport. They even were in a small worship band that also included Joshua’s mother and stepfather.
But music wasn’t the only thing that kept the couple connected. Every September, Joshua, and Sam would cosplay different characters, and post them on their IG. From cartoons like Peter Pan to TV shows like The Office, the duo has cosplayed them all.
The Office was the lovebird’s favorite show, “When you’re a kid, you assume your parents are soulmates. My kids are gonna be right about that,” Joshua once quoted the show over his IG.
