The Secret Daughter Season Two: Songs from the Original 7 Series is the second individual soundtrack album by Australian recording artist Jessica Mauboy, featuring music used in the second season of the television series of the same name, which stars Mauboy. The album was released on 6 October 2017 through Sony Music Australia and entered the Australian albums chart straight to number 2!
Even Jessica only did the interval act she was the first representative from Australia. One year after, Guy Sebastian took the Australian flag to Eurovision getting the 5th place, Dami Im in 2016 was the runner up and Isaiah placed 9th this year!
Other artists from Australia already took part in Eurovision representing other countries. Olivia Newton John or Gina G are the major examples.
Mauboy rose to fame in 2006 on the fourth season of Australian Idol; she became the runner-up and subsequently signed a recording contract with Sony Music Australia.
Mauboy was chosen by SBS to perform at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, in recognition of Australia's love affair with the annual event. She performed the single "Sea of Flags" during the second semi-final in Denmark, making her the first solo artist from outside Europe to perform on the contest as a guest. SBS screened the documentary, Jessica Mauboy's Road to Eurovision on 10 May 2014 before their coverage of the second semi-final.
