surrounded by music at home, which earned a reputation as “the

noisiest house on the block”.

At the end of March Jessica embarks on an eight-date All the

Hits Live Australian tour, where she will perform a back catalogue

of songs that mark her extraordinary rise to become one of our

most loved and talented entertainers. The tour comes on the back

of the launch of the The Secret Daughter album which will also

feature in the concerts. Original tracks ‘Risk It’ and ‘Home to

Me’ are heartfelt and Mauboy confesses that ‘Closer’ particularly

resonates with her “...the lyrics made me cry. There’s so much

emotion in the song and there’s a real sense of heartache and of

wanting someone to feel the same way you do.”

The whole album packs the Mauboy punch – there are some

rousing cover versions of R&B classics and great pub songs like

‘Better Be Home Soon’ (Jessica says when she was a kid her mother

would have the song playing constantly) and the Cold Chisel

song ‘Flame Trees’ which reminds her of her Darwin home. “I

just remember being in the ute with my parents driving around

the bush to visit communities. It’s a song that has really strong

memories for me. I would love to hear what Jimmy Barnes thinks

of the version.”

Jessica Mauboy’s All the Hits Live tour plays at Brisbane

Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane on 10 April.
