Delta Goodrem, John Schumann, Billy Pinnell make Australia Day 2022 Honours List

Singer-songwriter Delta Goodrem, John Schumann of Redgum and radio presenter and influencer Billy Pinnell were among those in music and media honoured in the Australia Day Honours List.

Goodrem received an AM for her contribution to funding cancer research through her foundation.

Much of it goes to the pioneering work in cell therapy at St Vincent’s in Sydney, which treated her when the singer was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in her teenage days.

Responding yesterday to the honour, she said, “At my core, I believe in the power of kindness and my intention has always been to give back and to make a difference.

“I continue to be inspired through my music and the Delta Goodrem Foundation that serves to touch lives and inspire hearts as a force for good.

“I am a deeply proud Australian and this honour means the world to me.”

Redgum leader John Schumann received his AM for his work spotlighting mental health issues among defence and police veterans.

It began after the band’s 1983 hit ‘I Was Only 19’, which he wrote in 15 minutes, about Australian teenagers who fought in Vietnam.
