What a thrill and coincidence it was for us to be pregnant at the same time! In our lives we have shared so much together, on and off stage, and to be able to share this special time in our lives was just another wonderful experience. Now we join forces again: 8 December - Riverstage, Brisbane; 13 December - Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide; 16 December - Kedron-Wavell, Brisbane.

May 2020: Facebook:Mother’s Day.“Looking forward to my second Mother’s Day with this little angel who has captured my heart. I will be singing some songs for my daughter, Sascha, on Mother’s Day weekend at my concert at Twin Towns Clubs & Resorts and I hope I will be able to keep it together without crying.Since Sascha has been born I have experienced emotions I never knew existed and I feel so privileged to be a Mum. She has changed my world and one of my most favorite things is seeing things through her eyes. Everything is new to her and so exciting and it made me realize that we as adults can sometimes take the “normal, everyday” things for granted. I see who I want to be in my daughters eyes”.
To all the Mothers, the past, the present, to those who have mothered families and nurtured communities: Happy Mother’s Day. Every day I spend with my daughter is a blessing, so today I dedicate this song to her because I see who I want to be in my daughter’s eyes.When I first heard this song, written by James T. Slater, I had an instant connection with it. Today I should have been on stage with a sold out audience at my annual Mother’s Day Spectacular. So, to bridge the gap till next year, Rob Mennen put together this incredible version of In My Daughter’s Eyes. Bringing together some of my dear friends and international musicians and singers I usually tour with. A huge thank you to Rob for his wonderful arrangement, mixing, editing, playing and singing! A huge thank you to Eleanor (The Australian Session Orchestra), Giedrė - Mundi Music, Imke Heitzer and Lionel von Lawrence. You all know how much this song means to me.During the instrumental there are three photos that appear. The first is of my Oma Ria with my Mum Henja, the second is my Mum and I and the third myself with Sascha.
