Yes, she was wise. And look how much she gained!
Helen Reddy – Australian singer, activist and pioneer, will be remembered in a tribute act at the 2020 ARIA Awards.
Reddy, who passed away in September aged 78, rose to fame in the 1970’s after her song I Am Woman became the anthem of woman all around the world during the second wave feminist movement.
I Am Woman broke new ground for Helen, resulting in her becoming the first Australian artist to top the US Billboard 100. It was also the first ever Australian written song to win a Grammy, where Helen famously thanked God:
“Because SHE makes everything possible.”
At the upcoming 2020 ARIA awards, Australian Eurovision artists Montaigne, Kate Miller-Heidke, Jessica Mauboy and Dami Im will join over 25 Australian female artists in a tribute to Helen, reflecting on the life and success of this true pioneer, and icon of Australian music. Here’s to you Helen.
