1 Comment

A beautiful song by Jessica Mauboy. She is really an Australian Rock Idol. She is amazing!!

Jessica Mauboy (born August 4, 1989 in Darwin, Northern Territory) is an Australian singer and songwriter who was the runner-up of the fourth season of Australian Idol in 2006. She was also a member of the Australian multi-platinum selling girl group the Young Divas.

Jessica Hillda Mauboy was born to a father of Indonesian origin and a mother of Indigenous Australian, Native American and English descent.

At the age of 14 she won the Road to Tamworth Talent Search, with the grand prize being a single recording contract with Sony BMG. She then recorded a country version of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun“. Years later during Australian Idol this contract became a source of controversy, with certain media reports stating that already having a recording contract was against the rules of Idol, but Grundy Television said Mauboy’s experiences in Tamworth had no bearing on her involvement in Australian Idol and that she no longer had a contract with Sony, allowing her to participate in the competition.
