Hair puts singer in the Pink

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Event - Tanya Macnaughton

IT is un­usual for a hair­dresser to have the same hair­style for four years but Sab­rina Davies does not have much choice for a change.

Not only does the mother of two make peo­ple look good for a liv­ing, but she also makes them feel good by fronting Perth Pink trib­ute act Pinked.

Davies has been dress­ing up as the Amer­i­can singer-song­writer and per­form­ing her cat­a­logue of hits for the past four years.

“The band hap­pened by ac­ci­dent… some­one sug­gested we do a Pink trib­ute show be­cause I looked a lit­tle bit like her and have her at­ti­tude,” Davies said.

“I was about 16 when she re­leased her Mis­sun­daz­tood al­bum which re­ally res­onated with me and all her mu­sic makes me feel like she’s singing about my life.

“I gen­uinely love singing her songs so we gave it a go with no ex­pec­ta­tions and it’s been crazy and won­der­ful.”

Pinked topped an on­line so­cial me­dia poll posted by Chil­dren’s Leukaemia and Can­cer Re­search Foun­da­tion (CLCRF) as the pre­ferred act to play at the char­ity’s Fam­ily Night Out con­cert at Perth Zoo on Satur­day, March 18.

The event will raise aware­ness and funds for child­hood can­cer re­search with zoo ac­cess from 3pm, chil­dren’s

ac­tiv­i­ties, bar­be­cue and fam­ily-friendly Pinked con­cert from 6-9pm.

“Ob­vi­ously I have a huge soft spot for kids and have been lucky enough to not be af­fected by any kind of can­cers so far,” Davies said.
