Each and every song has hit Number 1 on our official Australian music charts, they are songs that have already connected with so many of us over decades. In 2018, I can’t wait to share these iconic songs as well as songs and stories from my past 6 albums and 13 years in the music industry, in some of the most beautiful theatres around our country.
