It was Tina

It was Tina Arena who sang the Australian National Anthem at the ceremony for Cadel Evans on Sunday. There is a story here

Tina – who much to my son Lenny’s horror – has always been one of my favourite singers – now lives in Paris and is indeed very popular there.

And Tina when she was a little bit younger

Fabulous - thanks for hunting out that info.

Thanks so much for this, I missed it on tv. What a brilliant race and such a worthy winner! Amazing, thanks again x

Congratulations Australia!

I'm not sure I had ever heard your National Anthem; it's lovely.

tina arena. ughhh. almost ruined the moment.

Merricks said...

Now, I did wonder at the national anthem, as if it were a win at the Olympics. Great story.

Badger said...

nzm: I just had to know - and should have known at the time.

Beck; My pleasure

smedette: I shall sing it again for you when we meet.

lenny: I will like to hear Dave and Coral Snakes version but still.

Merricks: A moment for the history books indeed.

Young Tina - WOW!

Pam said...

I'm with you Badger. I've always thought Tina has a great voice too!
Perhaps Lenny has always held a torch for her, but can't admit it to his mates?? You must have heard the saying about doth protesting too much, methinks? ;~))))))

"OZ trailings all eat ostriches for breakfast lunch and tea..... my Sheilas rooted, SO am I

"Advarnce OZtrailians Fair....."

Annie: Hasn't she grown!

Pam: I can assure you he hasn't

Simon: Sounds like our Maalie!
