Delta Goodrem helped kick off the 2018 Commonwealth Games in fine style, debuting her new single ‘Welcome To Earth’.
It kicks off what will be a busy time for the affable Sony stable star; reprising her role as a judge on ‘The Voice’ on Channel 9 and starring as Olivia Newton-John in a forthcoming mini-series on the 7 Network.
But last night, Delta joined the likes of Christine Anu, Katie Noonan and Ricki-Lee as part of the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
“As a proud Aussie and passionate supporter of sport and all the talented athletes taking part in the games, I was humbled and honoured to be a asked to perform at this once in a lifetime moment,” Delta said in a statement. “It’s so exciting to have the world’s eyes on our talented athletes and to be able to showcase the beautiful Gold Coast to the rest of the world.
“Sport, like music is so unifying. ‘Welcome To Earth’ is my way of paying tribute to all the athletes and hopefully it resonates with people from wherever they are in the world.”
The track was rush-released last night and is currently in the top ten on the iTunes singles chart.
Not only that, but the single will be released physically on Friday May 04 via JB Hifi, Sanity and Delta’s official websites.
