Vanessa captured the attention of the Australian public at a tender age with her anthemic breakthrough hit ‘Absolutely Everybody’, a Top 10 smash which stayed in the charts for six months, certified double platinum in Australia and charted through Europe.
Her first album Power (2000) notched up six nominations at the ARIA awards and saw her sing “Heroes Live Forever” at the opening of the 2000 Sydney Olympics to great acclaim before a global TV viewing audience of billions. Singles such as “Shine”, “Perfect” and “This Is Who I Am” continued her hold on the charts, while the albums “Somewhere In The Real World” (2008) and “Hazardous” (2009) expanded her reputation as a singer who constantly delivered.
Vanessa used her position to become involved in a number of community causes and charities, including Kids Help Line, The Variety Club and animal welfare. As a result she was nominated in 2003 for Australian of the Year. She went on to sell two million records. 2019 heralds Amorosi’s return to live performances and a renewed focus on music with more to come.
