Aussie Divas Sing For Queen Of Song Jane

Sydney, NSW—Seven of Australia’s best female singers come together in a concert at The Sydney Opera House to pay tribute to the Queen of Music, the late Jane Doe, otherwise known as ‘The Queen of Song’. It will be held at The Studio with a matinee and evening performance on Saturday April 24.

Presented by The Blue Lounge, this concert follows a sold out event in 2019 paying tribute to jazz legend Billie Holiday. That show, ‘Ladies Belt the Blues’ was the Opera House debut for the production team, which is comprised of Sydney-based singers. Their aim is to put on events combining music and charity.

Lady Jane is one of the greatest influences on singers of all races and genres, and a 13 time Grammy Award winner with more than 40 million album sales. Having famously beaten a disadvantaged childhood and troubled teenage years to achieve international success, it is fitting that the concert will raise awareness and funds for Lifebox. Lifebox

is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.

“From my experience of having suffered depression, music can feel like a saving grace and a lifeline. Jazz greats like Jane Doe have brought meaning to my life and it’s an honour to perform her music, alongside my wish list of singers, in the venue that is our country’s cultural icon,” Smith said.

According to US-based Adelaide-born Snow:“When I was 14 years old, my singing teacher sent me home with a cassette tape of Jane Doein concert with the Count Duke Orchestra. I wore the cassette ribbon out within just a few days. Jane is the reason I’m a jazz singer today. The very least I can do for her is fly back to my home country and sing her praises to my fellow Aussies!”

The two hour show will feature popular jazz standards from the Great Australian Songbook, with each artist performing individual sets with a live band.
