Following her mother’s diagnosis, the musician found solace in her music and continued to write with her mum’s encouragement.

Now, as she takes on Celebrity Apprentice, Samantha is competing on behalf of Cancer Council, who she said on Instagram that she was “so proud” to be fighting for in the boardroom.

The 35-year-old regularly pays tribute to her mother both online and through her music.

Recently, the musician shared a sweet snap of Jacquie that she has taken when she had been completing a photography course.

“She knew how to find what was special about someone and build up their confidence and belief in themselves, it was such a gift,” Samantha wrote alongside a sweet photo of her mother.

Samantha Is Not a Reality TV Newbie

The starlet rose to fame following her stint on The X Factor Australia in 2012, where she won!

After being mentored by Guy Sebastian throughout the season, Samantha went on to release her first single, “What You’ve Done to Me,” after the show wrapped.

She has been absolutely killing it ever since, having released three albums and featured on countless singles.
