The Voice & Kim Sheehy says show empowered her to come out as a lesbian – for All Stars to return

& # 39; There's nothing worse than hiding who you are & # 39 ;: The Voice & # 39; s Kim Sheehy says audition before the show allows her to come out as gay

Kim Sheehy, the voter, credited the show for giving her the confidence to publicly address her sexuality.

After her participation in the Channel Nine series in 2016, Kim confirmed that she is a social media lesbian and described the experience as & # 39; so free & # 39 ;.

Talk to TV week, the aspiring singer, 31, said before The Voice that she would never be her & # 39; most authentic self & # 39; could be because of her previous job at a Catholic school.

& # 39; There is nothing worse than hiding with who you are to appease other people & # 39;

& # 39; I could not be my most authentic self and go out like a lesbian woman because my job would have been put together & # 39 ;, Kim said.

Despite the fact that she loved her job, music teacher Kim made the decision to quit and eventually embrace her sexuality.

Kim initially auditioned for The Voice in 2013, but failed to change the coaches' seats in her blind audition.

Still looking for musical success, she returned in 2016 and was coached by Delta Goodrem in the series – making it all the way to the second live show.

Now Kim is back and confirms her return to The Voice on Instagram earlier this month. She said: & # 39; Secret is gone! I'm back in @thevoiceau this year as ALLSTAR!

& # 39; So excited to show you what I have three years later than my last time in the voting phase. & # 39;
