Esera Tuaolo is the openly gay former NFL player who’s auditioning on The Voice, Season 13. This isn’t his first time singing in front of a big crowd either. While with the Green Bay Packers (1991-1992), Tuaolo sang the national anthem before playing in a game. The former defensive tackle from Hawaii (aka “Mr. Aloha”) also went to the Super Bowl with the Atlanta Falcons.
Tuaolo, who stands 6’4″ tall and weighs 300 lbs., retired from the NFL in 1999, after playing for nine seasons. After the Packers Tuaolo played for the Minnesota Vikings (1992-1996), Jacksonville Jaguars (1997), Atlanta Falcons (1998), and Carolina Panthers (1999). Tuaolo came out publicly in 2002 on the HBO show Real Sports. He is the proud father of teen twins, Mitchell and Michele. The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
