Jessica Mauboy, an exceptional Australian singer/songwriter delivered a star performance at Sydney’s ICC Theatre last Friday night.
Mauboy opened with, Can I Get A Moment. Her obvious fearless talent as she continued to sing her set list, telling her story starting her career in country music, singing Tammy Wynette’s Stand By Your Man, at the age of 11. Through to her audition song on Australian Idol, I Have Nothing, by Whitney Houston and her role as Billy on Channel 7’s The Secret Daughter, singing Home To Me. The audience sung Crowded House’s Better Be Home Soon, as Jessica’s musical spirit washed over them.
Mauboy, was brilliant and dug deep singing countless songs whilst using visual background screens between wardrobe changes which completed Jessica’s story showing her in Eurovision, on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, movie roles and more.
A defining moment Jessica played the piano and sung, Because, showing more depth to her musical talent.
The show was clever in creation and allowed Jessica to engage with her audience as a soulful authentic artist.
Jessica said “I will never turn my back on music, it’s never let me down. …Ever!”
