Jes­sica Hilda Mauboy was born on Au­gust 4, 1989, which makes her a lovely Leo! Fam­ily is su­per im­por­tant to Jess. She has three older sis­ters: San­dra, Jenny and Cathy and a younger sis­ter named Sophia. Jes­sica won our hearts back in 2006 as a sweet teen from Dar­win with an amaz­ing voice, who went on to be­come run­ner up in the fourth sea­son of Aus­tralianI­dol!

Miss Mauboy has had three stu­dio al­bums – BeenWait­ing,BeenWait­ing Get ‘EmGirls and Beau­ti­ful and some of her hits over the last 10 years in­clude: ‘Burn’, ‘Galaxy’, ‘ CanIGet aMo­ment’ and ‘ThisAin’t Love’.

Through­out her ca­reer the amaz­ing singer has been nom­i­nated for 17 ARIA awards and won two! Jess has per­formed for Barack Obama and Oprah Win­frey and toured with Bey­oncé! She was briefly brieflfly a mem­ber of Aussie girl group Young Di­vas.

In 2014 she rep­re­sented Aus­tralia at the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test! She also ap­peared on Se­sameStreet in 2014, singing a song called ‘5 Kan­ga­roos’.

If Jess didn’t pur­sue her dream of singing, she’d ei­ther be a teacher or work­ing in the com­mu­nity.

Jess is also a tal­ented ac­tress! She has starred in the movies BranNueDae and TheSap­phires, as well as play­ing the lead in the TV series TheSe­cretDaugh­ter. The role of Bil­lie on The Se­cretDaugh­ter was writ­ten just for Jess and to help her stay in char­ac­ter, she was called “Bil­lie” or “B” on set.

Jess also sings all 17 tracks on the show’s sound­track and it was the 7th high­est sell­ing al­bum in Aus­tralia in 2016!

When Jess wants to re­lax, you might find her paint­ing or go­ing to the movies.

You can see Jess live when she takes her All the Hits LIVE tour around Aus­tralia from March 30 to April 15!
