Aussie legend Tina Arena to be honoured with prestigious music award

Aussie legend Tina Arena to be honoured with prestigious music award

Support Act, who are an Australian charity that helps musicians and music workers who are facing hardship due to illness or injury, have decided to honour internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Tina Arena.

They are honouring Arena with its Excellence in Community Award at its annual fundraising event, Music in the House.

With Arena being a part of the Australian music scene for the past 40 years and has been singing to three generations of music lovers, awarding her with the Excellence in Community Award was a no-brainer.

With a 40-year recording career behind her and with Arena being the only Australian artist to earn a gold or platinum certification for each of her original albums in every decade since the 1970’s, the night is looking to celebrate her achievements.

CEO of Support Act Clive Miller couldn’t be more excited about the event.

“It’s an absolute privilege for Support Act to be able to honour Tina Arena at this year’s Music in the House,” he explained.

“She has had such a phenomenal career and continues to excite and challenge us both on and off stage. We are looking forward to celebrating her incredible contribution to music in Australia and internationally along with her many contributions to the community.”

Music in the House honours members of the music industry who, by their tireless efforts and charitable works, have made a difference and enriched the fabric of the broader Australian community.

Previous recipients of the Excellence in Community Award have been last year’s honouree Archie Roach, Jenny Morris, Paul Kelly, John Butler, The Sapphires, Jimmy Barnes, Glenn Shorrock, Don Spencer, Richard Clapton, John Paul Young and Russell Morris.
