ECO ANGEL Delta Goodrem
The Voice Judge and Singer / Songwriter Delta Goodrem is our new Eco Angel.
There is no mistaken identity, Delta Goodrem is back on top of the charts and back in our hearts with her new role on Australia's hit new show The Voice.
She burst onto the scene back in 2002 as Nina Tucker on channel Ten's soap Neighbours. Her debut acting role not only launched her career in acting but also singing - playing an aspiring singer on screen and off. Her debut single Born To Try launched her music career landing her on top of the Aria charts. A year later she followed up with two more ARIA chart toppers Lost Without You and Innocent Eyes. These songs featured on her first album Innocent Eyes which became the best selling Australian album of 2003 and went on to sell over 4.5 million copies worldwide.
After the success of her debut album, Delta was sitting on top of the world. But this 18 year old's world soon came crashing down when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. As part of her cancer treatment she underwent chemotherapy and radiation therapy which resulted in the lost of Delta's beautiful hair.
Since overcoming her battle with cancer, Delta has been involved with many charities in Australia, UK and USA supporting cancer fundraising events including the 2010 Stand Up to Cancer event in Los Angeles. We are truly inspired by Delta's strength and courage to overcome her battle with cancer at such a young age. Her beautiful uplifting spirit encourages her fans that anything is possible with the right attitude.
Delta: "Health is my number one. If I'm feeling run down, I rest. But at the same time, you have to be tough, to know when it's time to work - you have to enjoy it while it's there, embrace it."
After going into remission in 2004 she began working on her next album Mistaken Identity. This number one selling album was inspired by her difficult times during her battle with cancer and had an overall darker theme than her previous album. With songs like A Little Too Late, Be Strong, Out of the Blue and the title track Mistaken Identity. The album also included a duet with Brian McFadden called Almost Here.
A few years later Delta's third studio album simply titled Delta landed her back on top of the ARIA charts. The first single In This Life which was co-written by Brian McFadden debuted at number one. This multi-platinum selling album was followed by Delta's Believe Again Tour which gave her the chance to get up close and personal with her Aussie fans for the first time.
Delta's music career was not the only thing in the spotlight. Her rather public romance and break up with her fiance Brian McFadden put her on the cover of many tabloid magazines. She then briefly dated Jonas brother, Nick Jonas. Despite the 8 year difference they dated for over 10 months, recently going their separate ways in February this year. So the now single Miss Delta is back with a sexy new look, ready to re-ignite her music career.
After a few years performing on various US tours as a support act during 2010 and 2011, Delta returned to Australia as a Judge on The Voice Australia. Returning to her musical roots releasing a brand new single - Sitting on Top of the World. This uplifting song inspired a beautiful magical music video featuring Delta looking radiant, dancing and singing in the sunshine.
Miss Goodrem is now the brand ambassador for Swisse's new skincare range. Their beautiful vitamin-enriched formula nourishes the skin with natural, healthy ingredients. Swisse body products are free from toxic and harmful ingredients such as parabens, mineral oils, animals products and animal testing.
Delta: "I've tried to change my life in the last couple of years, tried to make changes for the best. So when Swisse approached me, it was poetic. The stars have been aligning nicely."
"Every change I've made has been from the heart. I'm thankful to be where I am. Life feels good."
With a gorgeous new look, new hit TV Show, chart topping new single, a new upcoming album and a tour scheduled for later this year, Delta Goodrem really is sitting on top of the world!
