Thrust into the limelight in 2004 as the youngest ever winner of Australian Idol, Casey Donovan has experienced the best and worst that winning a reality television show can offer.

The success of her debut album and landing the boyfriend she always wanted gave way to media coverage of her weight, family struggles, and being dropped by her record label. But battling personal demons in a very public arena, Casey fought back. Receiving critical acclaim for her roles in stage shows The Sapphires and The Flowerchildren – The Mamas and Papas Story.

Casey’s career has powered from strength to strength. She is now regarded as one of Australia’s most acclaimed Indigenous entertainers with a career spanning music, stage and screen. In this intensely personal account of the last 10 years, Casey opens up about her family life, her passion for music, and her gratitude to those that continue to believe in her. And for the first time, she tells the painful truth behind her first love, a relationship which consumed every aspect of her life, ruining friendships, family and almost her career.
