One of our favourite ever Aussie female vocalists, Katie Noonan, will team with a trio of other talented ladies next month for the ‘Songs That Made Me’ compilation album.
Comprising 14 tracks recorded by some of Australia’s finest female vocalists, including Deborah Conway, Mia Dyson, Angie Hart and the legendary Ms Renee Geyer, the album is set for release on Friday October 10 to coincide with the Cancer Council’s ‘Emeralds & Ivy Ball’. 100% of the profits from the album will be donated to the Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign.
“I am so thrilled to be able to join with these remarkable women, utilising the ‘Songs That Made Me’ concept, to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon campaign,” Katie said in a statement. “It’s not every day that you get to work with such incredibly gifted artists and contribute something meaningful at the same time. Sadly, cancer has touched all of us in some way and I’ve recently experienced first hand, through the illness of a family member, the amazing benefits that quality nursing care and support can bring. I am looking forward to getting our campaign underway and raising money for such a worthy cause.”
And there’s a tour. Ten dates have been locked in across the country, including a double date at The Basement in Sydney, with live performances from Katie herself and Angie Hart, along with Melody Pool and Sam Buckingham. Tickets for all are on sale now.
