Singer Frenchie Davis comes out as a lesbian

American Idol and The Voice alum has been dating a woman for a year

Singer Frenchie Davis comes out as a lesbian

When NBC’s The Voice premiered in April 2011, one of the first contestants was a powerful singer named Frenchie Davis who vowed judge Christina Aguilera with her rendition of Katy Perry’s I Kissed a Girl.

Now Davis, also known for being a semifinalist during the second season of American Idol, is letting people know that she really does like kissing girls and has been in a same-sex relationship for a year.

‘I wasn’t out before the relationship, but I wasn’t in,’ she tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. ‘I dated men and women, though lesbians weren’t feeling the bisexual thing. Now I’m in love with a woman I think I can be with forever.’

Davis advanced to the semifinals on The Voice before being eliminated. But at least she had a better outcome than on Idol where she was disqualified due to topless photos taken earlier in her career.

She quickly went on to land a role in the Broadway production of Rent, played Effie in a West Coast-touring production of Dreamgirls and starred in the 30th-anniversary national tour of the musical revue Ain’t Misbehavin.

She has also appeared at countless Pride and other LGBT events.

‘I should just come out!’ she joked at a 2009 GLAAD event in Los Angeles. ‘Actually, I am a gay man trapped inside of a woman I’ve been told. What can I say? The community has such a special place in my heart and I certainly don’t believe I would be as successful as I’ve been in my Broadway career and everything else if it weren’t for the gay community.’
