Earlier this month, Delta joined Italian singer Andrea Bocelli as a special guest on four shows of his Christmas concert tour around North America. The two performed duets on Blue Christmas, The Christmas Song and The Prayer. During this tour, Delta fell ill and was forced to postpone her own Christmas concert at the Sydney Opera House to 24th December. Fortunately, Delta recovered and performed an impressive show on Christmas Eve.
In November, Delta also hosted the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards with Joel and Benji Madden from American band Good Charlotte, with whom she also performed a medley of In This Life and Good Charlotte’s single Dance Floor Anthem.
Planet Delta hopes you all enjoyed your Christmas and wishes you all a happy new year.

Planet Delta Is 5! 24th April 2009
In April 2004, Planet Delta was launched and now we are 5 years old! Thank you to everybody who has visited the site. I’m so sorry about the lack of updates, but this news entry will give a brief account of the Delta events from the past few months.
In December, Delta performed three songs at the annual Carols In The Domain in her hometown of Sydney. These were O Holy Night, Oh Happy Day (with Brian McFadden) and Silent Night. In January and February, Delta embarked on her second concert tour, the Believe Again Tour, around theatres in Australia. The tour featured most of the hits from Delta’s three albums, as well as various covers including That’s Freedom, Queen Of The Night and Sweet Dreams. A DVD of the tour is expected to be released later in the year. In March, Delta presented an award with Brian at the MTV Australia Music Awards and was scheduled to perform the national anthem at the Australian Grand Prix but pulled out at the last minute after complaining of a sore throat. Delta has also been recently appearing in several advertisements in Australia, including So Good, Sunsilk and Nintendo Wii.
To bridge the gap between Delta’s third and fourth album, which is not expected until next year, a 2-disc package featuring the Innocent Eyes and Mistaken Identity albums is to be released on 25th April.
And finally, to celebrate Planet Delta reaching 5 years, I have set up a Twitter account at www.twitter.com/planetdelta. Please follow us for the latest updates on Delta and the website.
