Arias sing ailing Goodrem’s praises

Crooner's kudos includes highest-selling album, year's single

SYDNEY — Singer/actress Delta Goodrem, who is battling Hodgkins disease, got out of her sickbed Tuesday night to collect seven trophies at the Australian music industry’s Aria awards, a record for a female artist.

The 18-year-old former “Neighbors” soap star put her career on hold, including plans to release her debut album “Innocent Eyes” in the U.S., when she was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in July.

Goodrem was tapped for female artist and new artist (album and single) honors and took the gongs for highest-selling album and single, single of the year, and pop release.

“Innocent Eyes” has sold nearly 500,000 copies in Australia and is a hit in the U.K.

Powderfinger was named best group and its “Vulture Street” won album of the year. Alex Lloyd took the male artist honors and vet John Farnham was inducted into the Aria hall of fame.

Hillary Duff and LeeAnn Rimes were among the guest stars on the kudocast, which was telecast on Network Ten.
