It’s time to get your Mickey Mouse ears ready! The countdown is on until Disney On Ice twirls its way into Australia and Disney fans of all ages are starting to get very excited. The chilly weather has well and truly arrived here in Adelaide and there’s no better way to enjoy the cold than with ice skates on.

Last weekend we were lucky enough to get a little taste of the Disney magic to come when we hit the ice at Adelaide’s Ice Arena and got to meet Mickey Mouse up close… My girls’ hopes of ever becoming a Disney princess on ice skates may not be very likely to come true (staying upright was a lot harder than they expected!) but they had so much fun!

The real Disney On Ice cast is unbelievably talented and seeing them perform some of their mind-blowing moves was a fabulous treat. Where we were wobbly they were whirling, we were a little shaky and scared but they are simply spectacular… One thing is clear: the audience is in for an amazing experience with Disney On Ice celebrates Mickey and Friends!

If you haven’t booked your tickets just yet there is still time, thanks to the addition of extra shows throughout the country now even more people will be able to enjoy the magic of Disney On Ice.

‘Whitney Houston: The Greatest Love of All’ giveaway

Jan 282019
 

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!
