Kate Bush has pledged her support to axed 'The Voice' contestant Liam Tamne.
The 54-year-old singer was "sad" when the wannabe - who sang Kate's song 'The Woman's Work' during his blind audition and was picked by coach will.i.am - lost out to John Pritchard in the Battle Round on Saturday (25.05.13), and she has urged him not to give up because he is a "fantastic singer".
In a post on her website, Kate - who rarely gives interviews - wrote: "I was sad to see that Liam didn't get through on the Voice this week. It must be so tough for all the performers who don't stay in the show.
"Liam, you mustn't be disheartened. You really have a special talent and you're a fantastic singer.
"You've already been heard and appreciated by a huge audience. Try not to be too disappointed. Just keep going."
"I'm sure that your nan would be very proud of you having achieved so much. Good luck with all your future projects. Very best wishes, Kate."
After writing her message, Kate tweeted a link to the letter on her official Twitter account, her first post on the social networking site since April 30.
She wrote: "Kate left a new note for @LiamTamne on the Fish People site today: http://www.katebush.com/news/best-wishes-liam ... - Best of luck Liam! (sic)"
