Delta Goodrem is known for keeping the romantic side of her life strictly out of public view.
That’s why there was such a stir when she recently revealed that guitarist Matt Copley is her boyfriend and they’ve been together for the last two years.
It was the new reality of the coronavirus pandemic that made Delta want to open up.
She explained, “I am pretty consistent with saying to people that my private life is my private life, but we are spending isolation together and, in our household, we’re both performers.”
Delta’s preference for keeping her romantic connections under wraps dates back several years.
She didn’t want her relationships to change public perceptions about her life and accomplishments.
“It’s also about me understanding who I was, without other people telling me who I was,” the Songstress and The Voice coach confided.
The lovebirds enjoy a solid bond, with Delta describing it as “a relationship of respect.” She calls her partner “an incredible musician” and the couple have made creativity an integral part of their homelife.
Delta is immunocompromised by Hodgkin’s lymphoma and has been in quarantine even longer than most Australians.
That didn’t stop her performing in the One World: Together at Home talent-lineup that was enjoyed by people all over the world.
This initiative involved an online concert in benefit of the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Delta has been a coach on The Voice since 2012, taking a break only in 2014.
The singer is looking forward to the upcoming series and talks about how she’ll be working with Renee Bargh, her best friend who will join her on the show.
“I think Australia is going to fall in love with her like I love her,” she says.
The Voice is scheduled to re-start on May 24, with Delta alongside fellow coaches Kelly Rowland, Guy Sebastian, and Boy George, as well as Renee Bargh and Darren McMullen, both new co-hosts.
Delta describes The Voice as “a glamorous, fantastic show.”
