Artist Detail - BBC Entertainment
In 2015 the legendary former Queen of Pop shows no signs of slowing down, currently starring in VELVET the new smash hit, raucous fusion of disco, dance, burlesque and circus! Marcia has also partnered up this year as a program ambassador for national school music program Music Count Us In.
In 2014 Marcia was announced as the host of Foxtel’s new music channel Smooth, and showcasing her song writing and vocal skills, released a new album of all originals simply titled ‘Amazing’.
With a career spanning four decades, Marcia is an inspiration to women everywhere; constantly reinventing herself and setting industry benchmarks; from being the first black woman to star in Jesus Christ Superstar, to standing up for women’s rights on Australian Idol, to advocating ceaselessly for diabetes. Marcia was inducted into the ARIA Hall of fame in 2007 and received the Order Of Australia (AM) in 2009 for her services to the Australian Entertainment Industry as a performer, judge and mentor, and to the community through a range of charitable organisations.
Testimonial - Deeta Colvin
I first saw Marcia perform 25 years ago and thought she was the most dynamic artist I had seen. She performed at the Cointreau Ball where she tore the room apart - not bad in front of Australia's most critical audience. She is explosive....
Testimonial - Rodney Cambridge
A genuine legend with style to spare, who delivers every time.
Testimonial - Brian Walsh
Marcia Hines can play a stadium, a state room or a supper club and hold each audience in the palm of her hand.....she is, quite simply, the most complete female artist of our time.
