Pop Tsarina Kylie Minogue is to be honoured in Australia this month, invited to Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Oprah House to be celebrated for her outstanding contribution to the arts.
Good news after the jump…
Taking place on July 29th, the ‘Confide In Me’ singer/songwriter will grace the Helpmann Awards where she’ll be presented with the JC Williamson Award, in celebration of her career and in honour of the theatrical pioneer who birthed JC Williams LTD in the 1880s.
On the award, Kylie explained:
“A moment like this makes me so proud to represent the Australian entertainment industry. As a country we have, and we nurture, extraordinary talent. Long may this continue.”
Taking place before the release of her first studio album under Jay Brown‘s Roc Nation, Minogue’s honour also comes after she was confirmed to have enlisted serial hit maker DarkChild to craft new material for said album, shortly after penning cuts for the project with R&B freshman Elijah Blake…as seen here.
