Well the news is out! I won the QUBE Effect People’s Choice Award.
It was announced live on 612ABC Breakfast Radio with Spencer Howson and it really was a huge shock. I didn’t expect an announcement just like that, so I wasn’t nervous or even prepared to say anything. Watch the video of the live radio interview here. The cameras were a sneaky addition from ABC radio – my reaction is just hilarious.
I performed at the Brisbane Powerhouse that night right after I was presented with my very first novelty cheque – this one for $4000. I also won the City Hall Performance Award, which means the Brisbane City Council will put on a concert for me at the stunning City Hall (the gorgeous building below)
The week after all this excitement I formally addressed the Lord Mayor in full council and presented the city with a handmade papier maché love heart from the All the Love video.
Thank you to everyone for supporting me and voting. What a ride!
