Born and raised in Sydney, New South Wales, she enrolled in dancing, acting, singing and piano classes at a young age.
She began her career as a child actress, starring in various television shows.
This made Goodrem the first and only artist to have five number-one singles from a debut album.
Goodrem thanked them during The Visualise Tour for all the letters and well wishes she received.
The album’s fourth single, “Not Me, Not I“, was released following the announcement Goodrem had been diagnosed with cancer.
She is known to return to her alma mater for visits.
The album and proposed second single “A Year Ago Today” were pushed aside as a result, allowing Goodrem and Sony to re-evaluate her future musical direction.
