Delta Performs Surprise Show On Coast

SHE'S not just a voice -- Delta Goodrem is the complete package.

The 27-year-old singer and musician delighted a small group of lucky locals when she played a surprise show on the rooftop deck at Southern Cross Austereo in Broadbeach yesterday.

Goodrem later admitted she was in her element.

"It's where my heart is, as you see today. It's the environment where I feel the most free," she said after the impressive set.

"I feel like I can take off my shoes and jump around like I do at home and be a nutcase and love music and just feel the music and feed off whatever energy is in the room."

And that's exactly what she did, previewing four songs from her upcoming fourth album, Child Of The Universe -- current radio hit Dancing with a Broken Heart, Touch, Wish You Were Here (about the death of a close friend) and Sitting on Top of the World -- alongside golden oldy Born to Try.

Her shoes went off the moment she hit the deck. She danced, trilled and twirled as she waved to curious fans, tradies, kids and senior citizens on balconies above -- and that was just the soundcheck.

Of course, as her fans know, Delta doesn't do things by halves.

"I'm an extremist," she laughs.

"But at the same time my feet love to be on the ground with just acoustics."

One of Australia's most successful female singers -- she has eight No. 1 singles, 10 ARIA Awards and sales of six million albums to her credit -- Goodrem is grateful her role as a mentor on ratings smash The Voice has allowed her to show off her musical chops to a wider audience.

Goodrem will be joined by Rachael Leahcar, who she mentored on The Voice, for shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to coincide with the album's release in October before a full tour mid next year.

I don't think the article said she performed it, just songs from the album title Child of the Universe :)

Such a lovely thing for delta to do. Sounds like it was an amazing experience! To be had by all!

So I stand on this hill
With my flag held high
With the will to survive
Bullets flying by
Broken hears scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won't give up
I won't give in
I fight for hope in this
WAR ON LOVE

Thanks for posting :) For those who are wondering, the article is from today's Gold Coast Bulletin newspaper.
