XFactor Winner Dami Im continues to amaze with her new single ‘Gladiator’.

Listen out for: Dami Im 'Gladiator' 

The second single for her upcoming album, ‘Gladiator’ debuted at number 11 on the ARIA Single Chart, following the success of ‘Super Love’ in May, and ‘Alive’ in late 2013.
 

Drawing the nation’s attention with her dynamic transformation on the XFactor series, Im continues to stand out in the crowd of talent show alumni, forging a unique path with her sound and style. 
 

Speaking to Popsugar recently Im explained how she found her niche through the show:
 

“’When I started, I didn’t really know where I could sit in the music industry, in terms of my music, my voice, my style — everything…I thought, ‘I’m here to try different things anyway,’ and I wanted to find out what suits me and what doesn’t suit me. Now, I think I know it a bit better after going through everything…I think it made me realise what works with my voice and what doesn’t.”

Although she gave herself over to the process of the show, Im has still maintained a very strong sense of her personal identity, especially her Christian faith, and says now it’s about finding a balance between who people feel in love with on the show, and the image she hoeps to uphold through her longevity as an artist:
 

Hope 103.2 is proudly supported by

“I try to find the happy medium where I’m still the same kind of person they saw on The X Factor, but slowly moving in the direction I want to go, which is…I guess with ‘Gladiator’ it’s not such crazy makeup and dress. It’s more [about simple beauty] so people can focus on the music and the message, rather than [what I look like].”

Listen out for ‘Gladiator’ playing on Hope 103.2 now, and expect a full album from Im late this year.
