Kylie Minogue - Kylie Minogue Helps Plan Sydney's New Year's Eve Party

Kylie Minogue is playing party-planner by helping to organise New Year's Eve (31Dec12) celebrations in Sydney, Australia.

The Aussie singer has been named the city's official New Year's Eve ambassador and she has chosen the theme and colour scheme for the $6.9 million (£4.3 million) event.

Minogue has picked magenta, yellow, purple and red to represent her 'Embrace' theme, which will dominate the famous Sydney Harbour midnight fireworks display, as well as an interactive coloured light show.

Revellers are being encouraged to download a special cell phone app, which will make devices flash in sync as the clock ticks closer to midnight.

In a video message to mark the launch, the pop star says, "Embrace is all about acceptance, tolerance, diversity and above all, love. In a city of great diversity we come together at New Year's Eve to embrace the future and celebrate all that we are, and the potential that tomorrow holds. It's also about that magical moment at midnight when we throw our arms around the people we love and express our happiness... This year I want everyone to embrace during the fireworks. Whether it's embracing new ideas, change and opportunities or just giving a big hug to your family and friends, it's something everyone can get involved in."

Sydney's Lord Mayor Clover Moore says, "We are the New Year's Eve capital of the world. (Minogue) is making our New Year's Eve the most anticipated yet."

Minogue will be in Sydney to enjoy the New Year's Eve celebrations, but she won't be performing.
