On March 15, 2013 Jessica Mauboy and the cast of the Sapphires walked the Red Carpet at the New York premiere screening of The Sapphires and the natural next step for the bubbly Australian entertainer, actress and recording artist is to entertain the sell out crowd at the 2013 Peet Op Shop Ball !
In 2006, Jessica was the runner-up on Australian Idol, after she had auditioned for the talent show in Alice Springs to pursue a recording career.
She has since released three solo albums and had five top 10 singles in the ARIA charts as well as the soundtrack album for The Sapphires. Earlier this year Jessica was announced as Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the AACTA Awards for her role in The Sapphires, which will be released in the U.S.A. on March 29 and then Jessica will no doubt become a worldwide star!
On April 6 in the Crown Grand Ballroom, Jessica and her band will entertain guests with songs from The Sapphires album, as well as her own hits and it is sure to be a performance to remember for everyone attending.
