Carols and con­certs lead fes­tive spirit ........

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - CONTENTS -

GOLD Coast­ers will feel the magic of Christ­mas as Broad­beach comes alive with free fes­tive en­ter­tain­ment on Satur­day. A host of celebri­ties – in­clud­ing Ma­rina Prior, Sarah De Bono, Michael Cormick and The Boo­gie Woo­gies – will be in town to cel­e­brate the an­nual Broad­beach Christ­mas Carols. De Bono, one of the stars of re­al­ity TV hit The Voice, is sure to be a high­light when she takes to the stage to show­case her smooth pow­er­house vo­cals. The flame-haired songstress re­leased her de­but al­bum, No Shame, in July, a record which she says is about em­brac­ing be­ing dif­fer­ent. ‘‘It’s a re­lease and a re­lief to know you’re not alone,’’ she says. Join­ing De Bono at the an­nual event is Aus­tralian singer and ac­tress Ma­rina Prior – a lead­ing lady of mu­si­cal the­atre. Prior re­cently re­leases her first stu­dio al­bum in 18 years, Both Sides Now. The al­bum features a range of songs which were writ­ten and made fa­mous by leg­endary per­form­ers such as Joni Mitchell, ABBA, Freddy Mer­cury, The Car­pen­ters and more.

Broad­beach Christ­mas Carols play Kur­rawa Park on Satur­day with kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties from 3pm and live per­for­mances from 6pm and a fire­works fi­nale. Visit www.broad­beachgc.com for de­tails.
