Vanessa Amorosi

Genre: Pop

Country of Origin: Australia

Vanessa Amorosi (born 8 August 1981) is an Australian singer-songwriter and recording artist. Her combined album and single sales have reached over 2 million worldwide.

She reached almost unheard of success in 1998 when her debut single Have A Look went Gold after only seven weeks in the ARIA charts. This achievement was followed by mega-hits in Australia and Europe with Absolutely Everybody and Shine, and her album The Power reached #1 in Australia.

Vanessa has sold over 1.5 million records worldwide. Following this success, Vanessa enjoyed career highlights including everything from performing at the Sydney 2000 Olympics & the Manchester Commonwealth Games, to touring Europe with Joe Cocker, and receiving a vast collection of awards both within Australia and Internationally. As she moved out of her teens, Vanessa’s musical tastes became a little heavier and more soulful, finding inspiration from 70’s rock legends such as Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. “I never had vocal training but my mother was the best tutor I ever had,” Vanessa says. “She used to sing in a rock band herself. She’d always tell me: ‘”Put a bit of edge on those words, get across to the audience that those words mean a lot to you.” - Official Bio
