Three years after bursting into our musical consciousness as a troubled 19-year-old with a remarkable vocal gift on the first series of The Voice Australia, The Weekly caught up with the singer to see how life has changed since her meteoric rise to fame and her equally sudden fall from the spotlight.

“Even to this day, I sit down and watch that video,” the 22-year-old tells The Weekly of the moment her life changed. “I don’t do it every day or every week or every month, but every now and then, I log on and watch it again. Because it reminds me of how this all started.”

After taking out The Voice title Karise scored a recording contract, broke the record for the most Australian singles and nabbed two ARIA awards. She was mentored by superstar performer Seal and pegged as “the next big thing” to anyone who would listen.

As Karise tells The Weekly, life was looking good, until she began touring.

“Before I knew what was happening I was on tour around the country and I had the record company expecting big, big things,” Karise says now.

In a wide-ranging interview Karise opens up about her swift rise to celebrity, her very-near mental breakdown and her biggest life changing challenge to date – motherhood.

In The Weekly’s April issue Karise Eden shows off her newborn son, Blayden in some breathtaking FIRST LOOK baby photos taken near her home in Queensland’s Lockyer Valley.

While her pregnancy was a surprise, Karise says in the interview her baby – born on Christmas Eve – has been a blessing. He was her “little Christmas Eve bundle.”
