Dami Im, who successfully represented Australia at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden, will make her film debut in the latest DreamWorks animation film Trolls, based on the popular troll dolls with the colourful hair.

Dami Im will voice the character Grandma Rosiepuff in the animation movie Trolls. The Australian artist is very excited to have been chosen for this role, which she shares with Glozell Green (US version) and Susanna Reid (UK Version). Dami Im can be heard along with the voices of Hollywood stars such as Justin Timberlake, who gave a spectacular performance during the Grand Final of Eurovision 2016, Anna Kendrick and Gwen Stefani. Dami Im stated:

I had so much fun recording my small part and it’s an honour to voice Justin Timberlakes’ Grandma. I can’t wait for everyone to see the film, and get immersed in this incredibly fun, colourful, music-filled world.

Dami Im’s career is going extremely well, since she reached a respectable 2nd place at Eurovision 2016. The singer is grateful, yet also focuses on staying grounded:

I think the reason people get behind me is because I’m not a perfect, confident, Photoshopped pop star. I am clumsy and I have many flaws. I think people relate to that. They are passionate about supporting me because my story is their story.

Dami Im (1988, Seoul, South Korea) is a South Korean-born Australian singer-songwriter. At the age of nine, she emigrated to Australia with her family. Dami Im started playing the piano as a young girl, and later began singing, including a career as gospel singer in South Korea. Her mainstream breakthrough came when she won the fifth season of The X Factor Australia in 2013.

In March 2016, Dami Im was selected to represent Australia at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden. She won Semi-Final 2, and eventually reached a successful 2nd place in the Grand Final with her song Sound of silence, earning 511 points, and actually winning the jury vote.
