This past weekend, I attended my first ever ARIA Awards!
So grateful to finally have gotten along this year and be amongst so many amazingly talented artists. What a night!
Special thanks to Gibson Clothing for gifting me the fresh grey suit I wore too – felt a million bucks rockin’ it.
A few pics from the night…

Wow We Are Vintage thanks so much for this – the pleasure was all mine!
Had the best time with you guys Saturday night & can’t wait to do it again soon.
Had the best time meeting some of my Adelaide fans. Really meant a lot that you’d get out of bed on a Saturday morning just for me – thanks so much.
Shout-out to Samantha for the cartoon drawing of me too, I love it.
Big love to you all!
Thanks so much for coming out!
Thanks Influencers for not only having me sing for you last night, but for being such generous, gracious hosts – you guys really spoiled me wow!
Had a lot of fun, you’re outstanding people. I really left Adelaide with so much more than what I came.
So grateful to have been invited to the Media Federation Awards to perform for some the country’s most successful advertisers last week.

Reenactment of The Last Supper.
Last week I had greatest the biggest of honor of all: playing Jesus in a reenactment of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, for 20th Century Fox’s media launch of The Bible Series DVD/blue-ray.
The event was held in Circular Quay, attracting media coverage from The Daily Telegraph, Kyle & Jackie O and mX Magazine.

Shot of me as Jesus. What an honor.

Biggest thanks to 20th Century Fox for having me. What an opportunity to be part of something that means so much.
Had an amazing time meeting some of my Gold Coast fans last weekend.
So blown away that you guys would even take time out of your day to come see me!
Was so much fun and I’m super grateful for all your support.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of hitting the Gold Coast for the Hot Tomato Star Party.
Joined by fellow X-Factor finalist, Ellie Lovegrove, we did some media, performed, met some amazing people and just had the best time.
Thanks so much, Channel 7!
Chatting with Mal & Luke. Funny cats! And thanks Arc Factory & Bonds for the tee ;).
Ready for a great night, Gatsby vibes.

Thanks again, Channel 7! So good.
Huge thanks to the lovely ladies at Two Birds Talking for decking me out in Joe Black. Appreciate it!
Had my very first Meet & Greet in Sydney a little while ago, along with fellow X-Factor Top 12 family, Adirabelle.

I blogged not too long about PUMA’s new compression tights, and so now – being an even bigger fan than before – had to share these with you.
They’ve just released these sick new BioWeb Elite trainers. Some official info:
“The BioWeb Elite is a running and training shoe engineered to deliver maximum cushioning and stability. The unique web like design is carried into the actual tooling, offering seamless style and functionality from top to bottom. It wraps the foot with an innovative cage design and delivers a fresh new look in performance – super hero style, mask not required.”
Sounds ace, huh? And anyone who knows me knows I’m a superhero fanatic too, so this new style couldn’t be more fitting :p! They’re available in Oz from next Wednesday. Can’t wait to try ‘em out!
In case you didn’t know, I’m on Instagram.

P.S. ShoutOut to Sweaty Betty PR for the gifts!
2012 was the wildest rollercoaster ride of my life.
Exhilarating highs and devastating lows. Truly some of my best and worst moments. Most people would never have guessed – I tried my best not to let it show.
But I’m a firm believer that how we finish one season is how we enter the next. And I’m so glad I can confidently say that I finished 2012 well.
Thank God for faithful family and friends who love me, for the powerful teacher that is hindsight, for the direction that comes from clear perspective and for hope.
I’m stronger than I’ve ever been before and am so excited about this next chapter!
2013 begins now.
Just some Christmas fun from Pittsburgh. And yup, that is Sonny totally free-styling at the end!
Jesus’ bday is my favorite day of the year.
Hope yours is spent with the ones you love, full of celebration and good times.
