I first went onto Australia’s Got Talent in May 2011 just for some fun and originally with comedy in mind, but I ended up playing piano instead. I improvised my music for each appearance and had a lot of fun! For the Finals, I improvised a song that I’ve since called ‘Grandad’s Song’ and dedicated it to my late Grandad who died just before I went onto the show. He was an old bushy and loved John Williamson’s song “Hey True Blue” (playing in the background as I entered), so with the billy and swag in hand, I walked onto stage and then played a special song just for him.
I finished up as a Finalist, but had heaps of fun in the process!
