Has this Gold Coast mum got The Voice?

THIS Gold Coast mother has the experience and an impressive biography to prove it, but does she have The Voice?

Singer, song-writer, studio producer and Gold Coast mother-of-two Candice Skjonnemand will light up our television screens on Tuesday night during her blind audition for The Voice Australia 2014.

The 28-year-old is no stranger to the stage and spotlight, having notched up close to 100 awards and recognitions since her first solo performance in front of a large audience at the Gold Coast Arts Centre as a primary school student in 1998.


Amid her lengthy list of achievements, Candice received recognition from the Australian Parliament for her outstanding vocal performance at the Gold Coast Eisteddfods in both 1999 and 2001.

Candice - 2012 Karaoke World Championship

She has gone on to work with some of the hottest music producers from around the globe and has rubbed shoulders with signed artists including Guy Sebastian, Sophie Monk and The Veronicas.

Her success has earned her appearances and live interviews on national television and radio stations, including The ABC, Channel Seven’s Sunrise, Channel Ten’s The Project, and an article featuring in Woman’s Day magazine in 2013.

But it’s been a rough past 12 months for Candice who, during that time, has separated from her husband, lost her grandmother and had her father diagnosed with terminally ill cancer.

Will her audition be the start of something new? Will any of the judges turn for her?

Find out on at 7.30pm Tuesday night on Channel Nine.
