Swisse vitamins has ended it's association with singer Delta Goodrem with her one year deal coming to an end. It's understood Goodrems new manager Tina Kennedy, a representative for her US management firm Irving Azoff, will arrive in Australia later this month to begin a new round of talks with Swisse. It's expected Goodrems camp will also go into negotiations with Channel 9 for a possible third season of The Voice.
So im on the train listening to "Delta Goodrem" on shuffle, songs like My Big Mistake, Miscommunication, Mistaken Identity - songs I havent heard properly in ages and I was just thinking how big Delta's back catalogue has become... And how cool it would be, just for us dedicated fans, to become creative - and create a musical inspired by Delta Goodrem. And of course when I say creative, I mean the story can take whatever direction, but guided by the path of any song Delta has ever sung (or if appropriately to the story, guided by the use of any song by any artist at all).
Whilst my mind goes further than that, and wants to see an actual musical created in Delta's honour - I'd like to hear what forumers think about it. Perhaps we could try to create a few together with all the ideas we can come up with.
The first step I'd take is to go through every Delta song - albums, b-sides, duets, songs that have leaked etc. See how you can use them and create a story from that.
I dunno I'm just excited by the thought of that.
And I know its been done before - ABBA with Mamma Mia, Spice Girls have one in the UK, I think Kylie has before but I'd really like to see one for Delta.
Separately but perhaps together, I've always thought Delta would be an impressive autobiography to create when her career is truly cemented as legendary status 30 years from now. Starting from her car crash birth, her hunger as a child honing her craft, the failed IDC/Britney direction, Neighbours, Cancer, Brian/Kerry backlash, Visualise Tour (presented as a glorious moment she'd been dreaming for forever) and everything thats happened since and will continue to.
I choose to see those two as very different things but if anyone indulges in this with me, i'd be happy to see what you come up with in any means possible
