“It’s
all about the music, and now I’m just going to start living my dream,” Andrew de Silva said.

The father of Yazmin, 10, and Jada, 4, said the experience was “life-changing” and the $250,000 prize would help his family become debt free.

He overcame cancer and a serious stutter and shared his touching stories with the nation.

“Those
experiences are a part of my history and made me who I am,” he said.

His partner of 12 years, Elle, said their daughters were so proud of their dad.

“It’s
been such a journey, and it has changed him,” she said.

“He’s
doing
so many things now that he wouldn’t have otherwise done.”

Andrew de
Silva said he performed an original song Now That I Believe because it was all about keeping faith.

Minogue
said de Silva deserved to have a successful career in the music industry.

“It takes lots of guts to come back to the industry when you’ve already been part of it,” Minogue said.
