Anthony Riley, a Philadelphia-based street singer who was a contestant on the most recent season of The Voice, has died of an apparent suicide, Philly.com reports. He was 28.

Riley was on Team Pharrell and won his first battle round, but left the show voluntarily, telling producers he needed to deal with substance abuse issues. He was found dead on Friday in the basement of an apartment where he was staying, according to Philly.com.

During his Voice blind audition, Riley set a record by having all four judges turn their chairs around faster than any previous contestant on the show.
