About The Event
From her very first appearance auditioning for The X Factor in 2013, Dami Im showed the power of her unforgettable voice. As she made her way through the rounds, we learned more about this Brisbane music student with the impressive talent and electric stage presence. When she was announced the winner, her fans, the Dami Army, were right behind her. Three years later at Eurovision, Dami topped the judges' vote and narrowly came in second overall, taking Australia to its highest-ever placing and gaining fans all over the world.
How this shy Korean-born Australian girl, who started school with very little English and kept her dream of becoming an entertainer to herself, became a global sensation is a story of sacrifice, determination and talent. Behind the scenes, however, some in the music industry had tried to change her, pressuring her to do as she was told and sweeping aside her creative input. Dami didn't give in - she refused to compromise her values and stood up for herself and her vision. Now, she has emerged as the artist she was always destined to be.
Dreamer is an inspiring story of faith, family, determination and talent, and a powerful reminder that dreams can come true.
Beginning her musical journey as a virtuoso pianist, Dami Im is renowned for her emotive and powerful vocals since capturing our hearts when she won The X Factor Australia. She has released a string of hit albums and singles such as 'Alive', 'Super Love' and 'Gladiator'. She went on to become 'Eurovision royalty' in 2016 when she earned the highest score ever achieved by an Australian entry with her smash hit 'Sound of Silence', which charted in 38 countries. Dami's self-titled album debuted at #1 on the charts and went on to be a platinum seller. She has released a further three studio albums, which all have been top ten charting albums. My Reality, released in 2021, is Dami's fifth studio album. Dreamer is her first book.
Dami will be in conversation with Kathy McCabe, a NewsCorp National Music Writer.
