Delta Goodrem is an Australian musician and actress who is known for her powerful voice and songwriting prowess.
Delta Goodrem first signed to Sony Music aged just 15. And then in 2002, she landed the role of shy school girl and aspiring singer Nina Tucker in Neighbours.
This exposure helped re-launch Delta's music career, and her debut album, Innocent Eyes (2003), topped Australia's ARIA Albums Chart for 29 weeks. It is still one of the highest-selling Australian albums, and the second-best-selling Australian album of all time with over four million copies sold.
Delta was one of the big stars to return to Neighbours in the show's finale episode in 2022.
Delta Goodrem was born in Sydney, Australia on November 9, 1984. She celebrated her 37th birthday in 2021.
Her parents are Lea (née Parker) and Denis Goodrem. She also has a younger brother, Trent.
Her career took off when she played the single 'Born To Try' on the show and it went to number one in Australia and number three in the UK.
After battling blood cancer in 2003, Delta released the album Mistaken Identity in 2004 and it became number one in Australia and went five times platinum with sales of 350,000 copies.
Delta Goodrem has since toured the world as a singer, has acted in various movies and TV shows and was a judge on The Voice Australia alongside Boy George.
In 2020, Delta released a six-minute video detailing how she had to have her salivary gland removed, leading to the paralysis of a nerve in her tongue, which left her having to re-learn to speak.

Delta was previously in a relationship with tennis star Mark Philippoussis who supported her through her battle with cancer when she was 18, and she was engaged to Westlife's Brian McFadden but they ended their relationship after seven years in 2011.
Delta's net worth is reportedly $16 million, a fortune built on record sales, acting roles and commercial success.
