Christ­mas comes early for Carols queen Sa­man­tha Jade

Sunday Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

SA­MAN­THA Jade is the lat­est star to be an­nounced for this year’s 2017 QBE In­sur­ance Carols by Can­dle­light.

But for the singer, Christ­mas is com­ing early this year.

“I’m about to start record­ing my new al­bum this week,” she says.

“I think per­form­ing live is prob­a­bly my favourite part of my job but I do re­ally love the record­ing process.

“It’s where you can be cre­ative and help things come to life from noth­ing.”

Sa­man­tha will be join­ing fel­low X Fac­tor win­ner Dami Im and mu­sic the­atre star Lucy Du­rack at this year’s Carols – but says she has no plans to fol­low in Dami’s Euro­vi­sion footsteps just yet.

“It’s ob­vi­ously some­thing I would love to do and leap at the chance, I would love to rep­re­sent my coun­try in­ter­na­tion­ally,” she says. “But they choose who the con­tes­tant is go­ing to be each year so I can’t re­ally do too much more than say ‘yeah, it’s some­thing I’d love to do’.” Now in its 73rd year, Carols by Can­dle­light is Ade­laide’s big­gest carols event, at­tract­ing gen­er­a­tions of fam­i­lies to en­joy clas­sic Christ­mas carols and live en­ter­tain­ment while proudly sup­port­ing Novita.
