5 Facts About ‘The Voice’ Star Cami Clune
Cami Has A Condition Called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
Her senior year of high school, Cami was diagnosed with a condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. It’s a connective tissue disorder that causes chronic pain. As Cami pointed out on The Voice, the famous singer Sia also has this condition.
As Cami’s mom Patricia recently said in an interview, “Most people have absolutely no clue what her difficult health journey has been like. It’s so much, I could write a book someday.”
Cami’s health problems led her to quit musical theater when she was 16. “For a long time, I felt depressed and thought that this huge part of my life – of me – would be gone forever,” she wrote on Instagram. “And this is where music stepped in and quite literally saved my life.”
She Started A Charity Called Backyard Broadway
Cami gives back to her community through the charity she founded. According to the Facebook page, Backyard Broadway “uses the power of music and theatre as a platform to help people in need.”
The organization started by helping families affected by pediatric cancer. They also made a short film called “Blink of an Eye” addressing the opioid epidemic, starring Cami herself.

Cami’s name also made it onto the marquee at Shea’s Buffalo, a local theater. Cami loves musical theater, and has dreamed of performing on Broadway. She posted a photo in front of the sign on Instagram.
