Redland soprano Mirusia premieres her new show, Songbird at Redland Performing Arts Centre on February 12 at 7.30pm.
This concert follows her life's journey in song from humble beginnings singing of her Australian and Dutch heritage to international soprano sensation touring stadiums with the André Rieu and a collaboration with original members of the iconic band, The Seekers.
From her personal songbook, she performs and shares the stories behind the music. This show will include classics spanning many genres and includes The Greatest Love of All, The Long and Winding Road, Jolene and Fleetwood Mac's ode to love, Songbird.
"This concert and new album features mostly songs I've not performed or recorded before, but have always wanted to share with my audience. Some songs are dear to my heart and of a personal nature, and others have played a pivotal part in my career to date," Mirusia said.
In a series of fun and revealing anecdotes, Mirusia also tells the storiesbehind the songs.
"Whitney Houston's hit song, The Greatest Love of All is the song I sing to give myself strength to overcome any hurdles and block out the noise of naysayers. And you know what, I think it has worked," she said.
Mirusia will be releasing her new studio album Songbird on February 11.
