Who is Delta Goodrem?
Hailing from Australia, Delta Goodrem is a singer-songwriter and actress who achieved extraordinary success with her debut album, Innocent Eyes, which topped the ARIA pop chart for a record-breaking 29 consecutive weeks in 2003. Her career took off after that, and almost all of her albums and major singles were big hits worldwide. She is praised by critics and her fans for her pop and adult contemporary styles and her soprano voice. A teenager who survived cancer, she now works tirelessly in every way possible for cancer patients. Delta Goodrem songs that are quite popular include Born To Try, Lost Without You and In This Life.
Delta Goodrem was born in Sydney, Australia, on November 9, 1984. The song ‘Delta Lady’ inspired her parents, Denis and Lea, to name her Delta. Other than her parents, Delta Goodrem’s family includes her younger brother, Trent, who plays football. She attended Hills Grammar School until she was 11 years old. At seven years old, she began singing, dancing and acting lessons, and performed in an advertisement for Galoob Toy Company. She went on to do many other commercials. In addition, she has had a number of roles in successful Australian TV series such as ‘Police Rescue,’ and ‘A Country Practice’.
At age 15, Delta Goodrem signed a Sony recording agreement based on some early demos, and recorded a full album’s worth of pop songs. Following the failure of her 2001 debut single, “I Don’t Care,” Goodrem went back to acting and reevaluated her musical ambitions. Her next single, “Born to Try,” was launched during her time on the soap opera Neighbours. The track was a huge hit, getting the #1 spot on the ARIA singles chart and making everyone excited for her album. Upon its release in March 2003, Innocent Eyes immediately reached the #1 spot and remained there for twenty-nine weeks, providing as many as 5 number one singles.
Delta Goodrem Cancer
Delta Goodrem was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2003 while promoting her album, and endured treatment for the rest of the year with the support of her fans. When she recovered from cancer, she followed up with Mistaken Identity in 2004, which reached #1 in Australia and won platinum there as well. The album’s release in the U.S. a year later introduced her to a completely new market. She delivered her third consecutive number one at home with the lighter, poppier Delta. There was a duet with Olivia Newton-John called “Right Here With You” which came out later. Goodrem also portrayed Newton-John in a biopic tv show in 2018 and released a cover album of her songs.
Taking a break from music, Delta Goodrem appeared as a coach on The Voice Australia for two seasons. She achieved a peak position of number two with her fourth album, Child of the Universe, released in 2012. This was her first album to not reach the top of the charts. Even so, it went gold due to the success of “Dancing with a Broken Heart” and “Sitting on Top of the World.” Goodrem also dropped a Christmas EP in December. In 2015, she returned to The Voice as well as to Neighbors for a special episode in celebration of its 30th anniversary.
Delta Goodrem’s fifth studio album, Wings of the Wild, released in July 2016, featured the hit single “Wings.”. In 2018, she released the pop single “Think About You”.
