About Dami Im

Over the last few months Australian TV audiences witnessed the astonishing metamorphosis of 24-year old Queenslander, Dami Im. As her X Factor mentor Dannii Minogue noted, “She looked like she stumbled on stage by accident”. From a shy awkward ingénue, Dami Im blossomed into a powerhouse vocal star, and first-rate performer on The X Factor 2013. The shy girl in the corner took centre-stage and brought the house down, deservedly winning the show convincingly. From cocoon stage through to her transformation into a beautiful butterfly, Dami Im has captured the hearts and attention of fans all around Australia. Of South Korean decent, Dami moved to Australia with her family when she was 9 years old. Whilst she calls herself a proud Australian/Korean these days, life in a new country struggling to find where she fitted in wasn’t always easy. “It was a tough in the sense that I was a Korean girl growing up in Australia, and sometimes I felt like I didn’t belong to the Korean community or the Australian community. I think that’s what made me feel self-conscious, and lacking in confidence.” It didn’t help that Dami had a noticeable talent for classical music, even though pop music was her real secret crush. “I played classical piano since I was 5 and did the highest level of exams in that when I was in Year 11, so I was high-achieving in the classical world. I knew though that I wasn’t really in love with classical music; when I hung around other students in Uni who were studying classical music, they were so in love with it and I just wasn’t. I was more into K-pop (Korean pop music) and artists like Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Beyoncé, which meant that I struggled to fit in there, too.”
