Back in 2004, aka the time that fashion forgot, Casey Donovan became the youngest-ever winner of Australian Idol. Nearly two decades later, the singer and actress is every bit the powerhouse that Australia predicted.
Casey Donovan is having another big moment right now. In 2020, her barn-burning performance of empowerment anthem ‘Proud’ was a fan favourite at Eurovision: Australia Decides, while her BluesDay Tuesday Facebook Live series brought some relief to the dark days of lockdown. Donovan is also in-demand in the theatre world, earning rave reviews for her performance as Mama Morton in the Australian revival of the musical Chicago.
Casey Donovan brings an adaptation of her Bluesday Tour to the Speakers Corner, weaving storytelling around performances of Idol throwbacks, original songs, acclaimed musical theatre numbers and some party favourites. Please join us in belting ‘Proud’ into the Sydney night sky.
