Former Australian Idol star commits suicide :(

 
 



FORMER Australian Idol star Levi Kereama has died in a suspected suicide just hours after performing at a Brisbane festival at the weekend.

The Parklife Festival played Brisbane's Botanic Gardens and Riverstage from noon to 10pm on Saturday, and at 10.30pm police received calls to an inner city hotel to a suspected suicide.

Police arrived to find Kereama, 23, deceased after falling from the balcony of his upper-floor room where he had been staying after his performance that day.

"I thought it was a computer desk or a coffee table or something being thrown out the window," one hotel resident said.

Kereama is believed to have been suffering from depression, although it is not known if he was receiving medication for his illness.

In 2003, Kereama took part in the first season of Australian Idol, earning himself a wildcard entry to the final 12 alongside Guy Sebastian and Shannon Noll.

Despite being eliminated in week four, his singing career took off with family band Lethbridge, where he performed alongside brothers Jules, Ezra and Lane Kereama.

The Parklife Festival was held in Brisbane on Saturday, and moved on to Sydney's Moore Park for another full day of performances on Sunday.
