Adelaide Now, 13 October 2006
IT'S been quite a while since McLeod's Daughters' own diva, Michala Banas, stretched her vocal chords . . .
That is, aside from the odd round-up on set. But she will be getting
back to her ethnic roots and revealing her singing soul for the 2006
Multicultural Festival on October 28.
She is a little apprehensive, however, about being thrust into the
spotlight again three years after her debut single, Kissin the Wind,
"It's been so long since I've performed gigs . . . I'm freaking out a
bit," she said at The Advertiser/Sunday Mail Foundation lunch.
"I'll be doing covers, that's what everyone loves to dance to."
Festival ambassador Doris Younane had a round-up of her own to get all
the cast involved in the project. Word has it she may even rope in
newbie Abi Tucker for a bit of a warble too, but that's still riding on
Doris' powers of persuasion. Other casties stopping by on the day will
be Luke Jacobz, Dustin Clare and Gillian Alexy.
It's all for a good cause, so Doris (a woman with a heart as big as her
hair) is more than happy to spread the word at Drover's Run.
"Funds raised on the day will go to Camp Quality, which is a great
reason to support it . . . and it'll be such a fun day," she said.
Check out the fun at Thorndon Park Reserve at Paradise later this month.
