Alfie Arcuri, the first openly gay winner of The Voice Australia, shares his latest single, “Love Is Love,” as the same-sex marriage mail-in survey is drawing to a close.
“I am a strong advocate for the gay and lesbian community and I perform and dedicate my time wherever and however I can. With the marriage equality debate currently underway in Australia, I wanted to write an uplifting anthem, as the campaign so far has been quite emotionally taxing on the community. I believe love has no boundaries – it transcends gender, age, sexuality, class, ethnicity and race and everyone should have the right to love whoever they want.”
Here’s the video for “Love Is Love:”
And this is Arcuri’s latest single from the summer, “If They Only Knew.” The storyline is something I think a lot of folks can relate to.
According to interviews, the song is inspired by a past relationship. “I never actually wrote this song to be released because it is so personal,” said Arcuri.
