Biography

Casey Donovan (Born May 13, 1988) is a singer-songwriter/ musical actress, who initially shot to fame when she won the second season of Australian Idol in 2004, at just 16 years of age. Making her the youngest person to ever to win Australian Idol and one of the youngest in the world. Her unique style and emotionally charged performances won her many fans. Including the Idol judges, most notably Ian “Dicko” Dickson who proclaimed her “not only one of the finest young talents in this competition, but in this country”. Notable performances included ‘Here’s Where I Stand’, ‘Special Ones’, ‘Beautiful’ and ‘You’re So Vain’ all of which received “touchdowns” from Idol judge Mark Holden.

On 17 July, 2006, it was announced that Donovan had been dropped by her label Sony BMG because of concerns about her image and poor sales of her albums.

Since then Casey has made an effort to distance herself from Idol, spending much of her time away from the spotlight writing songs, as well as collaborating with respected Australian song-writers for an upcomming EP (August 2007)

An EP entitled ‘Eye 2 Eye’ was released in 2008.

In 2010, Casey was cast in the role of Cynthia in a musical stage production of ‘The Sapphires’ which saw the show tour Australia throughout the first half of 2010. Donovan won praise from the critics for her role in the production, which was presented by Company B Belvoir and Black Swan State Theatre Company.

    Sad to see an Australian Idol winner flop so horribly.

    I saw that mX ad, Melbourne mX though. One of those Australian Idol free concerts was on one day me and some friends were at Fed Square and a woman handed me a flyer for a Matt Corby (plus special guests!) gig at some house in Camberwell. $80.

    I remember when she won australian idol... her face was plastered all over the buses promoting her album, and she was advertising everywhere! a year passes, i'm looking in the back of the mX (a free newspaper given out on sydney's trains) and there she is in the gig guide... playing a show in some crappy club nobody's ever heard of, and the door charge was $10... I lol'd. (bearing in mind that in sydney, tickets for the majority of performances by known artists go for about $60+)

    Why do you know that she's a boring person? You think that! I like her voice and some of her songs, no matter what someone think. Boring is no argument for me.

    I don't know what is the problem? Because she has overweight? Oh, come on you "perfect" stupid people look first at yourself. You're sure not that talented and to be skinny is not a talent. I couldn't be ever so skin-deep (right adjective?) like some of these posts and I would never go on a singer site to dis. I would be ashamed. Shame on you! It's only music and music is almighty. She has a amazing voice. I like to listen to. And she is not ugly, she's beautiful. But some blind people will never see...
