Former Bachelorette Ali Oetjen Releases Debut Single 'Never Knew Love Like This Before'
Ali Oetjen is busting onto the music scene with the release of her debut single.
After finding her prince charming in Taite Radley in Season 4 of The Bachelorette Australia, Ali has been living her best life -- recently relocating to Taite's home of Ballarat.
But that's not all! This week Ali released her debut single, a cover of the 1980 Stephanie Mills track "Never Knew Love Like This Before".
Ahead of the track's release, Ali wrote on Instagram that her love for music has always been a big part of her life, adding how excited she was to share the track with her followers.
"I’m so excited at the thought of singing & inspiring people(YOU!!!)to feel a certain way," she wrote, adding that the song was, "from my soul to yours".
Ali also told Confidential she plans to release some original tracks, saying, "I love putting pen to paper and writing down how I’m feeling and lyrics and stuff like that. That’s definitely something for the future."
The move into music should come as no surprise to those who followed Ali, who sang a cover of "Can't Hurry Love" in the first promo ahead of her season.
The track isn't the only new chapter Ali is celebrating, with the upcoming opening of her and Taite's fitness club Sweaty AF.
The pair have been decking out a heritage building at the Ballarat Railway Station where they're offering a mix of low-impact cardio, weights and a blend of meditation.
"The Sweaty AF secret is that you will never want to leave," the site reads. "We have hand picked and designed a studio that will ensure you have all the tools to succeed."
Ali and Taite first met during The Bachelorette back in 2018, her third appearance in the franchise after also featuring in Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise Australia and Season 1 of The Bachelor Australia.
During the Bachelorette finale set in the Northern Territory, Ali told Taite, "I've learnt so much about myself and I've learnt so much about love. It's not just about fulfilling one person's dreams. It's about compromise, and it's about sacrifice, and it's about risking it all, and I'm willing to risk the hopes and dreams that I came here with because I am so in love with you."
