Blake Shelton teased to fans on social media that he’d be performing at his Ole Red restaurant and bar in Tishomingo, Oklahoma on Friday, August 11 and bringing some special guests along. One of those guests was his wife, Gwen Stefani, who joined Shelton onstage for a rendition of the No Doubt classic “Don’t Speak.” (Watch here.)
But the other guest was more of a surprise: Stefani’s 17-year-old son, Kingston Rossdale, who took the stage for a solo performance.
Dressed in a grey shirt, blue jeans, and sneakers, Rossdale sounded great, hitting some seriously impressive notes and maintaining a lovely tone throughout the performance. He certainly takes after his rock star mama!

“Love you guys, thank you for being here!” Rossdale said after wrapping his set. “Thank you, it means everything to me, really. I hope you guys had a great night; enjoy yourselves!”

In a very sweet moment following his performance, Shelton came onstage and gave Rossdale a hug. He’s such a proud stepdad! See that moment, below, also captured by @tiaradblue.
Blake Shelton has a close bond with Stefani’s three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo. In fact, a reason Shelton decided to leave The Voice after 23 seasons is to spend more time with his family, including these boys.
“I think being a stepdad has changed my perspective in that I’m not the first person that I think about anymore,” Shelton told Access, “Even to the small little things when you go, ‘I think I’ll do this,’ the very next thought is always,‘Well, wait a minute. How’s that going work?’ Or, ‘What will they think?’ Or, ‘How will that affect a schedule?'”
He continued, “I think the only way for me to really do that right is to step away from being committed to something like The Voice that demands a lot of your time. There’s no way around it. If you’re going to do it and do it right, you have to be 150 percent in. And I just feel like those days are behind me for now. I got a more important job.”
