Always one of Australia’s most talented vocalists, Vanessa Amorosi’s recent open-armed embrace of new experiences and big vision has led to her creating some of her finest and most innovative work to date. With eleven ARIA Award nominations and one prestigious APRA Award under her belt, Amorosi continues to astound critics and audiences alike with her fun yet honest music and vibrant personality.
Vanessa has sold over 1.5 million records worldwide, reaching almost unheard of success in 1998 when her debut single Have A Look went Gold after only seven weeks in the ARIA charts. This achievement was followed by mega-hits in Australia and Europe with Absolutely Everybody and Shine, and her album The Power reached #1 in Australia.
Following this success, Vanessa enjoyed career highlights including everything from performing at the Sydney Olympics & the Manchester Commonwealth Games, to touring Europe with Joe Cocker, and receiving a vast collection of awards both within Australia and Internationally. A thrill seeker by nature, Vanessa will be hard to beat at the Mazda6 Celebrity Challenge.
