The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Hor­sham Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val and Wim­mera coun­try mu­sic fans in gen­eral would be well fa­mil­iar with Queens­land per­former Kiara Ro­drigues.

The Vic­to­rian-born 20-year-old, al­ready a vet­eran per­former and record­ing artist, has a swag of awards to her name and leaves a last­ing im­pres­sion wher­ever she sings.

A Pleas­ant Sun­day Af­ter­noon show, the first event in re­de­vel­oped Hor­sham Town Hall, in­tro­duced many to the ris­ing tal­ent be­fore last year’s fes­ti­val placed her on a must-see list.

Ro­drigues will per­form at fes­ti­val events on Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day at Hor­sham Sound­shell at Sawyer Park be­fore ap­pear­ing at Hor­sham RSL on Sun­day night.

On the Fri­day Trib­ute Night, she will per­form songs made fa­mous by Crys­tal Gayle. On Satur­day, at the Coun­try Mu­sic Spec­tac­u­lar, she will sing two sets and on Sun­day two sets at a Gospel Marathon.

Last year Ro­drigues re­leased her de­but coun­try gospel al­bum ‘He Car­ries Me’ and the first sin­gle of the al­bum ‘Dear Daddy’ se­cured her first Aus­tralian coun­try charts top-40 hit.

She also se­cured the role of El­phaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, in the Queens­land Com­mu­nity Theatre pre­miere of Wicked the Mu­si­cal and toured across Queens­land, NSW, Vic­to­ria and Tas­ma­nia.
