Hailed as the international ‘Queen of 70’s Pop’ Helen Reddy was Australia’s very first truly international superstar. In 1973, her iconic song I Am Woman became the unforgettable anthem of the women's liberation movement and made her the very first Australian to ever win a Grammy Award.
During her remarkable career, she placed three #1 hits on the US Billboard charts and six more in the US top 10. She sold over 25 million albums and played to sell-out concert houses right around the world. She even hosted her very own prime time series on US Television.
Then, all of a sudden, she lost it all.
In 2020, the feature film I Am Woman brought some of Helen’s incredible life story to screens worldwide. In 2022, Australian singer and actress, Nikki Bennett, brings the whole story to Australian stages. Stunningly written and performed, this beautiful tribute weaves Helen’s greatest hits through her extraordinary life story. Featuring a stellar live band, it's a show that will capture every heart.
The Sun Herald calls Nikki Bennett "The Quintessential Showgirl". During her own impressive career, Nikki has starred in feature films such as Walk The Talk, television dramas All Saints, and Out of The Blue, as well as the hit musical HAIR Revival. For 15 years, she was one of the most popular guest entertainers on Australian variety television, with literally hundreds of appearances on shows like Hey, Hey, It’s Saturday!, Midday, In Melbourne Tonight, Good Morning Australia and many more. She has wowed audiences in 52 countries to date and is one of the most highly sought after Australian entertainers on the international corporate stage.
Whatever you do in 2022, don’t miss your chance to see this fabulous tribute to a woman who took on the world and became a legend. The Invincible Helen Reddy - an Australian to be celebrated.
