"I knew the original went to number one and it was breathtaking," she told the Sydney Morning Herald.
"I co-wrote that song with my adopted sister and (upon realizing it became no. 1) I just grabbed her and we cried. To think that we wrote this song in bunk beds in Kinroy and it's just gone to number one on iTunes ... It's something that's changed my life."
Eden slept in bunk beds in refugee centers after running away from home at the age of 13. She had stayed in 20 different temporary shelters, but now she is ready to build a more permanent home for herself and her family.
Eden has won a recording contract with Universal Music, cash amounting to AU$100,000 and a brand new car.
Eden thanked her mentor, Seal, for all his help throughout the duration of The Voice Season 1.
"He's helped me through thick and thin," she said.
"(O)ne of the things he did say was that there was nothing else and that if you stand strong, that is all there is. If you want to be an artist, and you want to be a singer, there is nothing else and you put your heart and soul into it," Eden added. She said Seal has helped her lay a direction, which she felt she didn't have at the beginning of the competition.
