Australian singer, Karise Eden (b. 1992), was in and out of foster care as a child. Karise's mother struggled with the care of her daughters, who often spent weekends with a respite foster care family.
As a teenager and a ward of the NSW state, Karise lived in a significant number of women's refuges. When she eventually reconnected with her foster family, her foster father or 'uncle' taught her how to play guitar.
Karise won the inaugural The Voice Australia competition in 2012.
