A few weeks ago I asked you which legendary artist you would love to see live on stage. You listed a long list of great performers and amazing talents, but Whitney Houston was definitely a big favourite among Hip Little One readers and I too feel a little sad I never had the chance to see her perform in all her glory. Did you know Whitney would have been 55 if she was still with us today?

This year Aussie fans are offered a fantastic opportunity to celebrate Whitney Houston with a spectacular tribute show honouring the talent, music and memory of this unforgettable singer. Come and (re)discover Whitney’s most memorable hits in Showtime Australia’s The Greatest Love of All.

After conducting almost 15,000 auditions across 12 different countries Showtime Australia has selected accomplished South African vocalist Belinda Davids to honour Whitney Houston on stage. Belinda has always been a huge fan of Whitney and for many years has been wow-ing audiences all over the world with her delivery of Whitney’s songs. To finally pay the ultimate tribute and represent her idol on stage is a dream come true and the reviews are nothing but glowing.

Accompanied by a fabulous 6-piece live band and team of dancers Belinda skilfully captures the voice, charm, nuances and even the gestures of Houston. Critics believe this is ‘as close as a singer can get to replicating Whitney Houston’s voice’ as the audience will find itself transported back in time to Whitney’s best years. Close your eyes and remember the raw emotion of I Will Always Love You, swing along to I Wanna Dance With Somebody, feel the power of Run to You, shed a tear for Didn’t We Almost Have It All and so many other beautiful hits during this amazing 2-hour tribute show.

Starting on April 3, 2019, Belinda Davids will bring the magic of Whitney Houston to Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, the Gold Coast and Brisbane. Tickets are limited so don’t miss your chance to be part of this heartwarming tribute!

Tomorrow marks my 8th wedding anniversary and I am yet to find a sweet gift or organise a lovely outing, the way I’m going I definitely won’t be taking home the ‘Wife of the Year’ award so I better get my act together. A great night out with your special person is so much fun and let’s be honest, we all deserve some time away from snotty noses, dirty dishes and the washing pile every now and then. If you’re in desperate need of an evening ‘off’ and could do with a good laugh I’ve got the perfect giveaway for you:


Based on Francois Lelord’s worldwide best-selling novel of the same name Hector and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom starring top actors like Simon Pegg, Toni Collette and Rosamund Pike. Meet Hector:

Hector is a quirky, yet irresistible London psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. He tells his girlfriend Clara that he feels like a fraud: he hasn’t really tasted life and yet he’s offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results.

Hector and the Search for Happiness is brought to you by Becker Film Group and will be showing at selected cinemas across Australia from October 23, 2014.
