Popplastic are just loving all things Australian at the moment, or at least Australian inspired. We're still playing The Sheilas on continuous repeat but even more exciting Popplastic's top correspondent, Popmaximus (of Lucky Twice fame)recently discovered the "Young Divas" whilst travelling in his ute through the outback!
The Young Divas are an Australian pop group consisting of former Australian Idol contestants with a bit of a thing for 80's pop, they're a kind of Liberty X meets Hazel Dean and Donna Summer. The Young Divas are, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Paulini Curuenavuli, Kate DeAraugo and Emily Williams, Emily was formerly a forklift truck operator in a factory - very Home and Away!
In 2006, the Divas recorded a version of the Donna Summer song This Time I Know It's For Real. The demo proved to be so successful that it was released for airplay in June, 2006 and since then the girls have gone platinum!
Here's some of their best bits . . .
