Former Australian Idol contestant Levi Kereama been found dead after tragically falling to his death from a high-rise Brisbane hotel, reports Ninemsn. He was 27.
Kereama was a 2003 contestant in the Network TEN series.
Kereama had earlier performed at the Parklife music festival and was believed to be suffering from depression.
Kereama rose to fame in the first series of the reality show, making the final 12 through a wildcard entry, before has was eliminated in sixth place.
His music career continued and he scored a record contract, releasing several singles in 2004.
Whilst no mention was made of the news during tonight’s edition of Idol, hopefully his memory and achievements are honoured in Monday’s Verdict show, particularly given how many of the youthful audience would be touched by depression during adolescence and beyond.
