The Melbourne-based Entertainer came to national attention earlier this year when he performed the iconic anthem, You're the Voice on Australia’s Got Talent, wearing the Dhinawan and Murray crest and feathers, which have significant meaning to his people.
The Gamilaraay man, left a mark on the Australia’s Got Talent judges when he earned himself the final Gold Buzzer in the last audition episode. His performance encompassed his Aboriginal culture that influences the modern world he lives in. Mitch continued to impress the judges in the semi-finals with a powerful rendition of the John Farnham classic You’re the Voice sung in Mitch’s native Gamilarray language. A performance that earned Mitch a place in the 2019 Grand Final of the hit Channel 7 series.
Mitch may have not won the Australia’s Got Talent winners crown, but he won the heart of Australia and numerous parts of the world, with his independent album Guurrama-Li soaring up the iTunes World Music charts in Australia, UK, USA and parts of Eastern Europe, including #1 in Australia, #2 in the UK and 34 in USA. Mitch’s album was the #1 iTunes Australian World Music album for five consecutive weeks.
Mitch has since released his version of the John Farnham Australian classic, You’re the Voice, which reached #1 on the Australian iTunes World Music Chart. His album Guurrama-Li has also re-entered #1 on the Australian iTunes World Music Chart.
The song follows the announcement last month that Mitch will join Eurovision Decides, performing for his change to represent Australia on the world’s biggest stage at Eurovision 2020.
