Christian singer JENNIFER KNAPP has ended years of speculation about her sexuality by revealing she's gay.
The Grammy-nominated 36 year old is preparing to return to the limelight after a seven year hiatus, during which she relocated to Australia and re-evaluated her faith, sexuality and career aspirations.
Knapp, who previously dated men, now has a special woman in her life and reveals she's ready to face the world as a lesbian.
She considers the term "coming out" as "very bizarre", but admits she's enjoying the extra attention from her female fans.
She tells Reuters, "I'm definitely getting a lot more friendly winks from the girls (at concerts) than I have in the past."
Knapp will release her first album since 2001's The Way I Am on 11 May (10).
After the spin-off Han Solo movie was hit by the loss of its directors earlier this week, LucasFilm and Disney have acted quickly to fill the gap...
The singer introduced "the next generation" in Iceland.
