The dynamic and multi-talented 2017 Aussie Eurovision hopeful Isaiah Firebrace has gone places since his Eurovision experience last May.
Isaiah Firebrace has released the official video clip of his latest single Streets of gold. The song has been released down under by Sony Music Australia.
Streets of Gold – the video
In his new video clip, Isaiah takes us on a journey back to his roots depicting his experiences and travels through a number of cities. We also get a glimpse of his Eurovision experience in Kyiv!
The Aussie star relased his new single Streets of gold on 28 of July and today, we bring you its official video clip.
Isaiah Firebrace got his first big break in the music business on X Factor Australia, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing.
He was knocked out of the series in 2015 after forgetting his lyrics on stage. He trained extensively in the year that followed, including travelling more than three hours from his Moama home to Melbourne and back again for five-hour sessions at the Jaanz School of Singing.
He tried again in 2016, but almost didn’t make it through the audition, breaking down in tears after a deja vu moment when he again forgot his lyrics. The judges decided to give him a second chance and he went on to win the contest.
Isaiah received a gift on his 17th birthday that’s pretty hard to beat – winning X Factor Australia 2016.
A softly spoken kid, at high school no one even knew Isaiah could sing, until he unleashed a powerhouse vocal at a school event in year 8.
Isaiah’s debut single It’s gotta be you hit #1 on the Australian iTunes chart and has racked up over 50 million streams worldwide. It’s gotta be you stormed the Spotify charts in over 15 countries including Australia, Denmark, Norway, Canada, the US and Sweden, where the single is now Platinum.
The Eurovision connection
Isaiah Firebrace flew the Aussie flag at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with Don’t come easy. He made his country proud by giving Australia its 3rd Top 10 placing in the contest, by achieving a 9th place in the Grand Final in Kyiv.
Australia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 with Guy Sebastian. The Aussies have excelled in their 3 participations scoring 3 Top 10 placings in their 3 year short Eurovision history. Last year Australia nearly walked away with the Grand Prix when Dami Im achieved a 2nd place in Stockholm.
