Australian singer-songwriter and actress Bonnie Anderson is making waves across the UK as she releases her debut UK single “Sorry” today, which CelebMix are premiering.
“Sorry” is an uplifting anthem that Bonnie wrote about the breakup of a toxic relationship that she experienced. “I wrote “Sorry” in 2016 when I was spending a bit of time in LA,” she says. “I wrote a lot about my relationship—the broken times as well as the good times—and “Sorry”was the product of the clear mind that the songwriting process gave me.”
Bonnie says that people should feel inspired by the song: “The message throughout “Sorry”is about standing up and saying enough is enough. It’s about accepting the fact that we all experience different walks of life and we may end up in places we’re not proud of, but we should never regret where we come from and what we’ve been through.”
The song is a gospel inspired pop number with an inspirational message and a strong vocal delivery from Bonnie.
Bonnie has already had success in her native Australia, having first shot to fame after winning the first series of “Australia’s Got Talent” in 2007 at the age of 12. Now 24, Bonnie has had two top 20 hits on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart with “Blackout” in 2014 and “The Ones I Love” in 2016.
Since 2018, she has been starring as Beatrix Nilsson in the popular Aussie soap “Neighbours”. Beatrix is a character that also happens to be a singer, just like Bonnie.
Bonnie is set to promote “Sorry” through her role in “Neighbours”, as her character will perform the song in scenes set to air this month. She will be following in the footsteps of many other “Neighbours” stars who have gone on to have successful music careers, such as Kylie Minogue and Delta Goodrem.
Bonnie has also recently signed a deal with record label BMG Worldwide, and is currently in the studio recording songs for her debut album.
With “Sorry” being her first UK single, Bonnie couldn’t have chosen a more powerful and emotive song to release. And with a performance on “Neighbours” under her belt, it looks set to be a hit. We can’t wait to hear more from her!
