Hailing from just outside Melbourne, along the banks of the Murray River, Isaiah first stepped into the spotlight in 2016 when he was crowned winner of the eighth season of The X Factor Australia. Since then he’s grabbed global attention for his #1 single ‘It's Gotta Be You’, which is now certified Platinum in Australia, 2 x Platinum in Sweden, Gold in Norway and Gold in Denmark.

2017 was a big year for Isaiah; he performed in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final with his single ‘Don’t Come Easy’, toured nationally with his friend & mentor Jessica Mauboy, and completed his first European press junket with stops across Scandinavia, the U.K., Belgium, and France. Isaiah’s music has been streamed over 200 million times worldwide.

Book Week: what is it?

In 1946 the Children's Book Council of Australia established annual book awards to promote children's books of high literary and artistic quality.  Winning women authors received a camellia and men received a handshake! 

Today, these awards are the most influential and highly respected in Australia bringing winning authors both fame and fortune.
