The charming starlet has been singing since the age of eight and is well known in the land of sheep for her blend of classical and pop.

Now in its 65th year, Carols By Candlelight has become one of Australia's most loved and recognised Christmas traditions. Each year the event delivers a fantastic showcase of Australian talent live from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

All proceeds from the event go towards ensuring the Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind can continue to provide free services for people who are blind or vision-impaired, giving them the chance to lead independent and fulfilling lives
