You might know Chandler Hoffman as the former UCLA star and current Philadelphia Union striker, or, you might know him as Jordan Pruitt’s ex-boyfriend. Either way, Hoffman is forever linked to the Disney starlet and singer.

That’s why we couldn’t help but think of Hoffman last night when Pruitt auditioned for The Voice by covering Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away”. Hmmm …

Hoffman and Pruitt are no longer together for reasons that are speculated about online, but both have successfully moved on with their lives. Pruitt impressed Christina Aguilera last night (which is hard to do considering “You gotta rub her the right way” … since she’s a genie in a bottle and everything) but one has to wonder what Hoffman thought of the performance … and, assuming he saw it, why a grown man watches The Voice at all.

Often, athletes who try to become singers end up in the “don’t quit your day job” category.  The most recent examples that come to mind are Tottenham’s Andros Townsend and Thomas Carroll who sang a rendition of “Stand by Me” in the locker room back in December and members of the Seattle Sounders who “sang”, and I use that term loosely, the Perry Como hit “Seattle” in a promotional video back in 2009.

Although wildly entertaining, Townsend and Carroll, having both been loaned out shortly after the video went viral, should concentrate on getting back into the Premier League, while the Sounders, well, I don’t even want to say what should happen to that video.

Luckily, we also have Karla Davis, a 2008 graduate of UNC Greensboro, who recently blind-auditioned for NBC’s singing show “The Voice”.  Davis twice earned All-Southern Conference honors and was the league’s freshman of the year in 2004. Now based in Nashville, Davis won the 2010 Colgate Country Showdown national competition, earning the title “Best New Act in Country Music.”

Watch a a glimpse of her talent after the jump.
