Since 2010 he has appeared as a judge on the singing-competition series “The Voice.”

Mayer, 40, has won Grammys for such songs as “Your Body Is a Wonderland,” “Daughters” and “Say.” His body of work includes seven studio albums, the most recent of which, “The Search for Everything,” was released last year.
