So yes, you’ve seen me on The Voice Australia belting my voice out as well as dancing like a crazy (but not drunk) person.

People have been asking me, was it fun? Definitely it was fun and I enjoyed every single moment of it. Was it fair? Based on that vocal, I would say yes and I’m satisfied with the coaches’ reactions. Will I really sing at Guy Sebastian‘s birthday? I’m just waiting for him to get in touch to organise it. *wink *wink! Did I give it my all? I did that and more, some people think it was too much and they’re entitled to their opinion but I’m happy with what I delivered. Will I do it again? If given another chance, why not!? It’s a perfect opportunity to go nuts! What am I doing lately? I’m working and collaborating with great individuals for an album and I can’t wait to release it by the end of this year. 

Check out my first song, Walk Away, to get a taste of what’s to come! What am I doing for now? Check out my gig guide and have a fabulous party with me!


The last episode before the grand finals and thank you Channel 7 for giving Australia a very astounding episode for All Together Now. It was a roller coaster of emotions.

First stop is, Caitlin Min Fa. Opening an episode is always hard but tonight, you split the judges in half, which is quite surprising. For me, the song Firework by Katy Perry didn’t spark for me. But I salute you for showcasing your talent to us. It’s a pleasure seeing you on stage.

Anton Aktila, the singing librarian, was the next contender and his rendition for Versace on the Floor by Bruno Mars was sexy and contagious. On a side note, that neck tie is gold! Tell me where you got it from, Anton?

Meanwhile, Didy, I believe a lot of performers know your struggle and I feel for you. I’ve been there but we just need to keep on going. I didn’t stand up when you sang, The Climb by Miley Cyrus, coz it didn’t move me. Or maybe I’m just a cold-hearted performer. I hope not. Strive for the best, Didy.

Sabrina Davis, gorgeous hair dresser and Pink impersonator from Western Australia. I was captivated, and I stood up late for her coz my eyes were stuck on you, babe! Brilliant performance! You have a very welcoming smile.

Tarryn StokesThis is Me from The Greatest Showman left me speechless and crying. It’s a very inspirational song that helps people break the barriers and strive forward. You never know what the future brings and shouldn’t let other people drag you down. Also, congratulations to you for slaying the night’s episode. You were amazing. Whitney Houston would be proud and yes, I will always love you.

Thank you all for sharing your voices to us. Music keeps us going and it gives us all the highs and lows in life.

What a surprising night in All Together Now Australia. I was surprised, I had fun and I had a few moments with my wonderful neighbour, Mary Kiani. Kudos to Alex for always reminding the 100 that we are not giving away ticket to a chook raffle, it’s $100,000.

For me, the first performer wasn’t that great and was a bit off. Indi Williams performing Justin Bieber’s Sorry needed more training and practice. He’s still young and needs a good teacher. Trust me, I was like him when I was his age. Lusy Rahmawaty with Adele’s Hello was sweet and kind but I didn’t get the connection from her.

What captured my attention was Gaynor Tension with her Shirley Bassey take on Pink’s Get This Party Started. Just wow! The moment she set foot on stage, she was in character and I loved her. I and the rest of Australia was definitely entertained. It’s nice to see the entertainment industry is still alive from pop to rock, and impersonation to drag. Let us show all our support to all kinds of music coz a world without music is totally boring. I love love love you Gaynor Tension.

Special mention to Jacob Hapeta Sweet Caroline was sentimental. It reminded me of parents when they sing karaoke along with their kids. Platinum Harmony singing Ariana Grande’s One Last Time thank you for sharing your quadruple vocal talent. You all sang phenomenal when you harmonised. Lauren and Georgie Bannard’s Land of 1000 dances was joyful to watch. It felt like they were there to share the joy rather than focusing in a competition. Good thing Ronan remembered him too!

Jason Hill Creep was mesmerising. Well done in getting the final seat. To the other finalist, Emma Mylott, her jazz take on You Give Love A Bad Name from Bon Jovi was interesting. She has the talent and the voice but I think it would also be nice to do your own thing and not copy a style from Postmodern Jukebox. Congratulations to you Emma and I’m glad you got the seat. I’ll see you at the finals.

So, for this episode, my love and favourite is Gaynor Tension. She was the epitome of fun and entertainment from start to finish. She is my wildcard for this episode, by the way. Tell me who your favourites, likes and loves from the episode are.

Get this party started

Hope you didn’t miss last Sunday’s episode of All Together Now Australia. First up was the incredible Pam Wachira. It was a fantastic start that made all 100 judges come together and stand up! Well, except that one guy… Ninety-nine is a tough number to beat and it was very intimidating for the next performers to see that number.

I loved Harley Mckinnon’s passion when he was on stage. His hands were literally shaking but he was giving his all. I’m glad he got the second spot of the podium.

And yes, I absolutely have to talk about Jessica Boyd. What a damn awesome surprise! That voice is to die for and she was the queen of the night. In my opinion, she didn’t need to mash it up with Lady Gaga coz the song was already a stunner. I get her reasoning as to why she had to do it. Opera is not getting that much attention compared to pop music and she nailed both songs here.

Special mention to Annette Dawes’ performance. She was captivating and you can feel her soul singing out to the crowd. I also love her vintage dress.

The final showdown was between two remarkable singers, Pam and Jessica, with Jessica the clear favourite with her rendition of All I Ask of You from The Phantom of the Opera. I can’t wait to see Jessica in the finale with Lai from episode one and Royston from episode two.

Stay tuned again for the next episode on Sunday at 7pm on Channel 7. If you haven’t watched them yet, download the 7plus app and watch it gazillion times.
