Australian award-winning singer-songwriter and Eurovision 2019 contestant Kate Miller-Heidke will be performing at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre next month.
Traversing the world of contemporary pop, folk, musical theatre and opera, the songstress has achieved multi-platinum status and appeared in the top 10 album and singles charts numerous times over her career.
Heidke is most known for her multi-platinum hits including Last Day On Earth and Caught In The Crowd, but has also experienced a long career in classical music.
Trained as a classical singer at the Queensland Conservatorium, Kate recently appeared at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in John Adams' The Death of Klinghoffer
She has performed several roles for the English National Opera, and in Jerry Springer The Opera at the Sydney Opera House.
Her work has been nominated for other ARIAs in categories as diverse as Best Pop Release, Best Adult Contemporary Album, Best Classical Album, Best Comedy Release and Best Australian Live Act.
With her collaborator Keir Nuttall, she has written the music and lyrics to Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical, which premiered at the Sydney Theatre Company and played throughout 2019 in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
After competing at ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’ on the Gold Coast in February, Kate was unanimously chosen by both the jury and public votes to become Australia’s representative at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.
Kate’s heartfelt performance and the out-of-this world staging of her original song ‘Zero Gravity’ won her first place in her semi-final and a top ten placing at the Eurovision Grand Final in May 2019.
Her most recent performances include the NRL 2021 Grand Final in which she sang ‘Flame Trees' alongside Cold Chisel guitarist and singer Ian Moss.
