Bonnie Anderson (born 28 November 1994) is a singer-songwriter from Australia. She was the first winner of reality TV show Australia’s Got Talent in 2007 at age 12. She released her debut single “Raise the Bar” in 2013.
Australia’s Got Talent
Bonnie first came to attention when she became a finalist on the first season of Australia’s Got Talent at age 12. She eventually won the season. She was offered recording and management contracts soon after, and Anderson declined them to “just be a kid for a while”.
She started working on her songwriting and playing musical instruments to help her in the industry.
In 2012, Bonnie was featured in a cover of “Gonna Make You Sweat” with fellow Got Talent allumni Justice Crew. It was the theme song to short-lived dance show Everybody Dance Now. Her debut single, written by the DNA duo, was released on 8 November 2013.
On 13 June 2014, Anderson released a new single, titled “Blackout”. Bonnie incorporated a highly stylised look for the imagery in its music video, working with the 2013 ARIA Award winner for Best Video Director, Christopher Frey, and celebrity photographer, Peter Brew-Bevan. Anderson also toured around Australia with UK singer Olly Murs. The track became her first top 20 in Australia, receiving a gold certification.
