Far north Queensland may have missed out on a visit from Harry and Meghan, but next week our friends at FNQ Magazine will be welcoming the Queen, songstress Paulini, to Cairns for their fifth birthday celebtrations.
Paulini will hit the stage for “Queen Of The Night”, a one night only charity event to raise funds for the Melanoma Institute Australia.
Fresh off the Australian run of The Bodyguard musical, Paulini will hit the stage at Cairns Dinner Theatre for the special concert featuring songs from the classic musical.
“I’ve always been a huge fan of Whitney Houston, and landing the lead role was a dream come true,” Paulini said.
“When we wrapped the season it got me thinking… The musical was only available in big capital cities and not everyone could afford to travel to see it.
“I thought this was a perfect opportunity to bring some of those Whitney classics to regional far north Queensland.
“I love Cairns and the people – including the large Fijian community – everyone’s always so supportive every time I’m there.”
Paulini will be supported during the show by two stars from The Voice Australia, 2016 winner Alfie Arcuri and 2018 finalist Luke Antony.
“Both those boys have amazing voices. I’ve shared the stage with them before and they blow me away every time,” she said.
“I think Luke is on first and his set is so rich and smooth, followed by Alfie’s set which will get everyone up on their feet and dancing.
“Then I’ll be performing everyone’s Whitney favourites – the dance tracks and the iconic ballads.”
Queen of the Night is this Saturday, November 3 from 8pm at the Cairns Dinner Theatre. For tickets, visit the website here.
