Australia's beloved musical treasure Marcia Hines, with a career spanning four decades, has released

22 albums, selling 2.6 million copies and has garnered countless chart-topping singles and multi-platinum records.

Marcia is an inspiration to women and Australians everywhere, constantly reinventing herself and setting industry benchmarks; moving from Boston Massachusetts to Sydney at just 16 to star in the Australian production of 'Hair', being the first black woman to star in 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and advocating ceaselessly for diabetes.

Marcia was Australian Idol's favourite judge for the show's seven consecutive years, and was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007. She 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.

The legendary former 'Queen of Pop' shows no sign of letting up! The hit fringe festival stage production ‘Velvet’ began in Adelaide in 2015 and has travelled the world with Marcia in the starring role and has spawned any number of audience attendees wearing bellbottoms and platform heels!

2018 sees Marcia joining forces with John Paul Young, Brian Cadd, Leo Sayer and Russell Morris for the APIA Good Times Tour, a month-long concert journey commencing in Darwin and taking in capital cities and regional centres till mid-June.

A musician, an amazing singer, and a beloved member of the Australian music community. In her own words, “There are still many rivers to cross!”
