Eurovision star Dami Im joins The Wiggles in performing 'We're All Fruit Salad'
A very special Eurovision star has joined The Wiggles!!
Yes you heard that right, Australia's Eurovision powerhouse, Dami Im, has joined one of Australia's biggest exports, The Wiggles, in a video celebrating the 60th anniversary of Australian - Korean diplomatic relations. Together they have collaborated in a version of 'We're All Fruit Salad' sung in English and Korean.
This year Australia and South Korea celebrate 60 years of friendship, with both countries officially establishing diplomatic relations in 1961. They have for decades been partners in trade, security and people to people exchanges.
To commemorate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Australia and South Korea this year, the Korean Cultural Centre has collaborated with beloved Australian children’s band The Wiggles on three iconic episodes.
The special three-episode series promises a fun, engaging combination of Korean and Australian culture, delivered in a bite-sized, age-appropriate format. No matter which country children are watching from, they will be able to learn something new and experience cultural diversity at its best and brightest!
The three episodes will air fortnightly on the KCC YouTube channel:
Episode 1. Hello, friends in Korea!
Episode 2. We’re All Fruit Salad! with Dami Im
Episode 3. Korean folktale storytime (not yet released)
Dami has had a busy few months. She recently completed filming 'Celebrity Masterchef Australia' as part of the line up along side other celebrities like footballer Nick Riewoldt, actress Rebecca Gibney and former Olympic Games medallist Ian Thorpe, with many more. Screening date for the show has not yet been revealed.
The Eurovision 2016 runner-up was also nominated in the Australian Women in Music Awards. She is joined by 'Eurovision – Australia Decides 2019' Tania Doko nominated for the Songwriter Award. We wish Dami the best of luck!
The fun with The Wiggles doesn't stop here. A special collection of Wiggles colouring-in sheets featuring the iconic Big Red Car, Korean traditional house (hanok) and traditional attire (hanbok) has been created to commemorate this 60th anniversary. You can check them out here.
