The Voice star Avery Wilson has come out publicly as bisexual.

The US singer, who rose to prominence of the third series of the singing competition in 2012 as a 16 year-old, opened up about his sexuality on social media over the weekend.

In a post shared on his 25th bithday (18 July), Wilson wrote simply: "I’m bisexual, OK bye."

Wilson later opened up on Instagram, revealing he had previously avoided adressing his sexuality in public but that doing so "feels good as hell".

The musician, who released his most recent EP, 8:34, last year, wrote: "In my eyes, life isn’t about being perfect. It’s about growth, evolving, setting & smashing goals and most importantly happiness and LOVE. Im all about perfecting my love of self while not being afraid to love whoever I want, however I want.

"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. Well, things just don’t work that way when your known on a big social scale!"

Wilson continued: "TODAY, all questions and speculations of the past, now have a present definitive answer! To finally answer the question....YES, I’m a bisexual man who’s in love with LOVE.
