About Isabella Clarke:
From Victoria, Isabella is a 13-year-old singing sensation who made her debut on the Melbourne singing scene four years ago. Since then she’s received many accolades performing at various singing competitions and, at present, holds a coveted principal vocalist role in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular.
Isabella is a self-confessed foodie who enjoys spending time with her family and friends and credits megastars Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige as her inspiration for singing. She loves Australian comedy television shows, knows how to laugh at herself, and is focused and determined both at school and in performing. Tipped for a bright future, Isabella hopes to join her idols and become an international recording artist. ABC and production partner Blink TV selected Isabella in consultation with leading Australian record companies.

Earlier this year, ABC, the Australian Broadcasting Company, and SBS announced that they would collaborate bringing the contest closer to the Australian kids by broadcasting it on ABC ME, Australia’s leading broadcast and online TV service for school-aged children and their families.
As there isn’t televoting, the show will be broadcast pre-recorded on 27th November at 19:30 (local time) on ABC ME. The commentators will be Grace Koh, Pip Rasmussen and Tim Mathews, who will travel to Georgia to provide Australian children with daily updates.
