Seventeen year old Isaiah Firebrace will become the third artist to represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev.
Isaiah, who originates from Moama in New South Wales (a town of less than 6,000 people), shot to fame when he won the 2016 season of X Factor Australia – on his birthday! His distinctive deep, warm voice defies his youthful age.
Isaiah is no stranger to Europe. His debut single It’s Gotta Be You was a hit in Denmark (where it went Gold), Norway and Sweden (where it went Platinum). The single has surpassed 50 million streams on Spotify.
In Kiev,Isaiah will be performing Don’t Come Easy, which was composed by DNA Songs. If the track sounds a little familiar, well that’s because DNA Songs were also behind Dami’s 2016 hit Sound of Silence.
Isaiah has big shoes to fill – Australia has had an impressive start to its Eurovision career with Guy Sebastian coming 5th in 2015 and Dami coming 2nd in 2016.
Australia will perform in semi final 1 in Kiev, with hopes of making it to it’s third consecutive final.
Good luck Isaiah!
