Jessica Mauboy is flying out of Australia today ahead of a prestigious gig performing at the Emmy's Governor's Ball on Sunday.
The 24-year will perform in front of some of Hollywood's biggest names, include TV executives and A-list actors.
It's the second time The Sapphires actress has performed at the official after-event party, wowing audiences at the 2012 shindig after impressing them at the G'Day USA Event (which is run by the same organisers).
Mauboy, fresh off her wins for Female Artist of the Year and Single Release of the Year for Something's Got A Hold on Me at the Deadly Awards, has been tipped for big things in the states after heavy hitters the Weinstein brothers backed the Australian musical last year.
Oprah and Simon Cowell have also spoken out as some of her biggest fans.
Mauboy warmed up for her big US gig with an appearance at a fundraiser for the Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation at The Star in Pyrmont last night.
The singer is an ambassador for the foundation which was hosting its first event last night after being founded in July 2012 following the young man's death in Kings Cross.
The foundation’s website says the funds it raises will assist it in helping make our streets safer and preventing alcohol-fuelled violence in our community.
