WINNER THE VOICE AU
Karise Eden has had a hard life to date but in return has been given an amazing gift.
I first got to hear her voice at a camp for homeless kids and people run by Musicians Making A Difference (MMAD) what an amazing organisation that is. Karise was living in a refuge at that time.
When we heard her sing and play her guitar, we could not believe what we were hearing.
I remember thinking to myself, WOW I really hope this girl is someday recognised for her vocal ability and gets the chance to share her music and story with Australia.
Then comes THE VOICE, the best reality show to hit Australian television. I think the authenticity of the show, the honest judges and the really talented contestants made it so successful. What an amazing platform for local talent to be discovered and heard. The chemistry between the judges and live studio audience also made The Voice AU electric.
Speaking of Judges, Seal definitely contributed to Karise's WIN. Seal instilled a higher confidence in Karise, he truly believed in her and more importantly made her believe in herself. He was an amazing coach.
"Hallelujah", Australia really voted right in this competition, Karise Eden quite simply had the best voice in the competition.
I can't wait for the next season of The Voice.
