DAMI Im rocked the Gayn­dah races on Satur­day, ar­riv­ing in a vin­tage car and hang­ing out with the jock­eys after the last race.

Gayn­dah Horse and Jockey Club re­ported that Dami’s visit – ini­ti­ated by Golden Orange Ho­tel-Mo­tel owner Ken Mogg – had made the day “one of the big­gest days we’ve ever had”. Dami min­gled with guests in the VIP mar­quee, then wowed the crowd with – cur­rent hit sin­gle Gla­di­a­tor for the Gayn­dah Glad­i­a­tors rugby league fans, Eye of the Tiger with a nod to Mun­dub­bera, and Pur­ple Rain.

The singer said her X-Fac­tor Aus­tralia win last year had led to new ex­pe­ri­ences.

“I meet peo­ple and go to beau­ti­ful places like Gayn­dah ... so I feel very blessed,” Dami said.

Her new al­bum, Heart­beat, is due out to­mor­row.

“It will be good to put my mu­sic out there and not cov­ers, but ac­tual songs that I wrote,” she said.
