Her debut album Innocent Eyes was released March 3, 2003, and has been in the charts at or near the top since, and featured four No 1 singles. Most of the songs were written by Goodrem herself, and featured her instrumental skills on the piano as well as her voice.
On October 4, 2003, while Goodrem was undergoing chemotherapy treatment, it was announced she was parting ways with her manager, Glenn Wheatley, one of Australia's best-known and most successful managers of popular musicians, apparently much to the surprise of Wheatley.
Goodrem capped off a successful year by winning a record seven ARIA awards on October 21, 2003. She broke the previous record of six, held by Natalie Imbruglia. In the first week of December 2003 Innocent Eyes broke John Farnham's Australian record of 25 consecutive weeks at No 1.
As at December 2003, Goodrem was still undergoing treatment for Hodgkin's disease.
