‘The Voice’ Alum Avery Wilson Comes Out as Bisexual: ‘I Am Who I Am & I Love Who I Love’

Former star of The Voice Avery Wilson just turned a year older, and decided to celebrate by speaking his truth.

On Sunday (July 19), the R&B singer-songwriter took to his Instagram feed to ring in his 25th birthday by telling his fans that he identifies as bisexual. “TODAY, all questions and speculations of the past, now have a present definitive answer,” he captioned part of his post. “To finally answer the question….YES, I’m a bisexual man who’s in love with LOVE. I AM WHO I AM and I LOVE WHO I LOVE. Always have and always will!”

In the post, which was accompanied by a hazy photo of the singer posing with some slick sunglasses, Wilson spoke about his journey towards coming out, saying that he needed time for “growth, evolving, setting & smashing goals” in his life. “In my eyes, life isn’t about being perfect,” he wrote “I’m all about perfecting my love of self while not being afraid to love whoever I want, however I want. That real ENTANGLEMENT type s–t!”

The singer also clearly stated that he’s been asked often about his sexuality, and that until Sunday, he never felt comfortable revealing it to the public for the sake of his own privacy. “I’ve always personally faced but publicly never answered one HUGE question about myself — all because I wanted my privacy and I felt like my business is just that — MY business,” he said. “Well, things just don’t work that way when you’re known on a big social scale.”

In closing his post, Wilson thanked his fans for their love and support throughout his career, and looked forward to a new future. “Cheers to new beginnings and unapologetically walking in your truth,” he wrote. “It feels good as hell and I wish all y’all the same. Thank you for all the birthday love and constant support. Y’all are loved and cherished more than you know — for life!”

Wilson competed on season 3 of The Voice as a part of Cee-Lo Green’s team. Despite being considered a favorite to win the competition, the star was eliminated during the knockout rounds after his performance of Usher’s “Yeah 3x.” Since then, Wilson has gone on to kickstart his independent music career, even teaming up with rap stars Migos for his 2015 single “Change My Mind.”
