Choir of Hard Knock-ers rocks Finnies

Move over Australian Idol, So You Think You Can Dance and It Takes Two – Australia’s best talent was to be found at Finnies Unplugged held at Earth ’n’ Sea last Wednesday night. 

 The event unearthed Australia’s greatest new talent – the Choir of Hard Knock-ers – a group of mums who dazzled with their disco sparkles, hot dance moves and harmonies when they performed their own special version of I Will Survive.

The night of fun and frivolity was designed to raise funds for the St Finbarr’s Catholic Primary School but also to give parents and teachers the opportunity to display their talents for a good cause. 

 Anna Sansom, accompanied by principal John Wilson, brought tears to some eyes with a beautiful rendition of ‘Both Sides Now’. Jeremy Edmeades entertained with some of his own compositions.

Matt Holland opened the night with some great guitar numbers. Monique Lewis and Paul Orrock completed the bill with some lovely harmonies.

The highlight of the night was the stunning and talented 17-year old Millie Leary, whose brother attends St Finbarr’s, and who has aspirations to attend the West Australian School of Musical Theatre (WAAPA).

The night raised more than $2000.
