EDITORS’ NOTES

Few have traversed the road from reality TV to national superstardom as successfully as Jessica Mauboy, who, after finding Australian Idol fame in 2006, would become one of the first indigenous chart-toppers in 2016. The Secret Daughter Season 2 soundtrack is a compilation of covers (along with two originals) performed throughout the show, including a stripped-back rendition of Crowded House’s “Fall at Your Feet,” a lively take on Paul Kelly’s “Dumb Things,” and “Amazing Grace,” a stunning duet with the late Dr G Yunupingu (one of three indigenous guest artists), sung entirely in his native Yolngu language.
