In February this year, the first ever ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’ competition was held for the public, and a jury panel to decide who would represent Australia at Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv.

I was lucky enough to be chosen and have since been busy preparing. I’ve been working with one of the most amazing teams of creative people I’ve ever had the joy of collaborating with to try to make my performance in May the most vivid, colourful three minutes of live musical storytelling I have ever done.

We are building on the staging I had in Australia Decides, working once again with the Melbourne-based and internationally renowned performing arts troupe Strange Fruit. The vision we have for those precious three minutes requires sophisticated mechanical apparatus, professional rigging, and experienced performers who are staggering physical virtuosos.

I am confident there has never been a performance like this on the Eurovision stage, but the catch for me is, the artist must fund it!  Turns out this Eurovision adventure will be quite an expensive one (somewhere north of 5 figures and south of 7).

The Department of Communications and the Arts and Creative Partnerships Australia have very generously agreed to help out with $60,000. This money comes with a caveat similar to the one my Mum gave me at age 11 when I wanted her to buy me a piano – every dollar I raise will be matched with a dollar by the DCA and CPA, and it needs to be raised from the public (or in the case of my piano, delivering the Westside News around the suburbs of Brisbane).

If you choose to contribute, you would be helping me get Strange Fruit (plus all of their necessary freight) and support personnel out to Tel Aviv and accommodated.

You would be helping to showcase to the world a creative team of epic proportions on a huge scale, and be a part of Australia’s ongoing participation in literally the world’s biggest song competition (the final is seen by 300 million people worldwide).

The song I am singing Zero Gravity was written by me and my husband Keir Nuttall (he will be staying home looking after our son and having FOMO). Together we have written a lot of the material I have performed over the years, including some of my more well-known songs like Last Day on Earth, Caught in the Crowd, Facebook Song. Most recently we collaborated on the words and music for Muriel’s Wedding The Musical. I have also performed for the English National Opera, New York Metropolitan Opera.  Zero Gravity brings together all of the above in a way – it is a fun song with a serious message, and uses elements of pop, theatre and opera. I am thrilled to bits to be presenting it to the world as Australia’s entry, and if you’re feeling benevolent, or flush, or patriotic – every little bit helps!
