POWERHOUSE PERFOMRER: Toni Childs is bringing her Retrospective Australian Tour to Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on Saturday night.

Join the legendary Toni Childs for a special two hour performance at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre this Saturday night, as she celebrates the 30 year anniversary of her breakthrough debut album Union.

Childs will be performing hits and fan favourites from Union, House of Hope, The Woman's Boat and Keep the Faith as part of her Retrospective Australian Tour.

The second hour will be your introduction to her new music from two very special albums It's All a Beautiful Noise and Citizens of the Planet.

An Emmy winner and three-time Grammy nominated recording artist, Toni is a celebrated singer/songwriter known for her powerful voice, inspiring independent spirit, and crafted storytelling.

Issued to critical acclaim in 1988, her album Union burst onto the charts and was certified double-platinum on its release in Australia.

According to Apple Music, the tracks on Union are "...nothing less than articulated craftsmanship, fusing drum programs, synth layers, ethnic percussion, dashes of guitar, and even cellos."

Australian music lovers immediately picked up on the sumptuous world-cum-mainstream music; the worldly rhythms translating well for an audience Down Under.

Her following album House of Hope achieved similar success, again reaching double platinum here in Australia.

With fans in over 50 countries around the world, Childs has produced a list of international hits such as Don't Walk Away, Stop Your Fussin', Walk and Talk Like Angels, Zimbabwe, Where's the Ocean, Many Rivers to Cross, I've Got To Go Now and Because You're Beautiful, to name a few.

Over her illustrious career, she has opened for Bob Dylan, and performed duets with greats such as Al Green and Peter Gabriel.

The coming years will see the wider release of two very special albums of music.

First, It's All a Beautiful Noise and second Citizens Of The Planet. Both releases are apart of two unique 3D Mapping animated shows - two hours of immersive animations and lots of high tech audience engagement!

The spectacular show kicks off at 8pm.

Tickets are on sale at the CPAC Box Office, by phone on 4993 4266 or online at cessnockperformingartscentre.com.au
