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!
