Jessica Mauboy Suffered Panic Attack Before Melbourne Cup Performance


Jessica Mauboy

The star had been due to sing the Australian national anthem for the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse, but she pulled out at the last minute and her backing singer, Nadia Aya, stepped up to take her place.

Jessica has now revealed an argument over her outfit broke out shortly before she was due to take to the stage, and she was struck down with crippling anxiety.

"It was the scariest moment ever. Before every performance, you need at least half an hour to focus on what you are about to do..." she tells News.com.au. "People think it's easy to get up there and perform one song but that one song is the hardest song to sing in Australia.

The Sapphires Review


Excellent

Shamelessly crowd-pleasing, this warmly engaging film is based on a remarkable true story. And since it's topped off by Chris O'Dowd's most engaging performance yet (which is saying a lot), resistance is futile. Surprisingly for a comedy, there are also some startlingly serious moments along the way, as the film touches on racial issues and war violence without getting too heavy.

It's set in 1968, which was just as turbulent in Australia as in America and Europe. In the rural Outback, music promoter Dave (O'Dowd) is looking for new talent while slowly pickling himself in alcohol. Then he discovers three sisters - Gail, Cynthia and Julie (Mailman, Tapsell and Mauboy) - who can actually sing. They call themselves the Cummeraganja Songbirds, but as Aboriginals they're shunned by bigoted white society. So Dave takes them on, giving them a crash-course in soul and helping them secure a gig singing for the troops in Vietnam. Joined by their lighter-skinned cousin Kay (Sebbens), they head into the war zone rebranded as The Sapphires.

Where this goes is both hilarious and unexpectedly intense, and credit should go to the filmmakers for resisting the usual movie structures. Everything comes and goes as it would on the frontline of battle: romances begin and end without big movie climaxes, people are suddenly separated and there isn't time to get too melodramatic even in life-or-death situations. Meanwhile, the filmmakers also stir in an underlying current exploring the civil rights protests of the period in both the US and Australia. All of this adds up to a breezy, enjoyable journey with serious points along the way. And a lot of fabulous music.

Chris O'dowd Landed The Sapphires Co-star As Wedding Singer


Chris O'Dowd Jessica Mauboy

Irish actor Chris O'Dowd's summer (12) wedding featured an extra-special guest - his The Sapphires co-star Jessica Mauboy sang at the ceremony.

Mauboy, who was a runner-up on Australian Idol in 2006, struck up a close friendship with the Bridesmaids star and she was only too happy to perform at his August (12) nuptials to Tv presenter Dawn Porter.

She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I'd seen Chris in Bridesmaids, so I was thrilled to find out he'd been cast. I was quite nervous when I first met him. I knew I could sing but I've never been to acting school so I was worried I might not measure up. But Chris put me at ease.

The Sapphires Trailer


Four indigenous Australian women, sisters Gail, Cynthia and Julie and their cousin Kay, are ambitious country and western musicians in 1968 that set out to become stars in the wake of a political bill that increased the rights of the Aborigine people. Following a singing contest in rural Australia, a whiskey drinking Irish musician Dave Lovelace sees their potential and sets out to turn the girls into soul singing global sensations. Although apprehensive at first, the group (known as The Sapphires) soon begin to warm to Lovelace, especially when he manages to secure them a gig performing for US soldiers in Vietnam. It soon becomes a life-changing journey for them as they learn the true importance of friendship, family and bravery.
