Sarah: The highlights of coming off The Voice have been all the amazing opportunities. I love all of the meet and greets with my fans. The launch of my album No Shame and seeing my album in stores and hearing my single on the radio has been amazing. I also love the collaborations with amazing brands Betts and Kiehl’s!
Sassi: Tell us a little bit about your new album ‘No Shame’? What do you hope to achieve with this album and your next?
Sarah: No Shame is an album made up of all the songs I sang on The Voice as well as my original song Beautiful and single No Shame. I’m currently working on new tracks and really excited for my next album. It’s all about my fans and I can’t wait to release something they can be proud of after growing with me throughout this journey.
Sassi: What keeps you grounded as it’s quite a surreal experience I can imagine?
Sarah: It’s all about being real and still being true to yourself. So have fun and do everything you used to, just be responsible. I have a lot of good people around me who keep me grounded and make sure I am the sane crazy passionate bold Sarah De Bono I have always been.
Sassi: How exciting your first campaign, tell us about your Betts gig? Why was it a good fit for you?

Sassi: What are some of your favourite trends this Spring/Summer 2012 season we have to look forward to?
Sarah: I cannot wait for this summer, it’s all about the metallics, prints and neons! I’m excited to be out and about and enjoying the sunshine. This season’s summer fashion will be sure to be bright colourful and fun!
Sassi: Do you have any overseas trips on the cards? If so, what can you tell us about it?
Sarah: At this stage I’m just focusing on releasing music in Australia, however the last few months have shown me that anything is possible and always be ready to expect the unexpected.
Sassi: What else do you have in the pipeline that we can look forward to that you can talk about?
