Australian Story airs next on October 12 at 8pm on ABC with “Raise Your Voice” and will be introduced by Hugo.
What would you do if you lost something that’s been the essence of you for most of your life?
Something that’s given you joy, a vocation, even fame – and then one day it starts slipping away…
For singer Jenny Morris, that question recently became very real.
The ARIA-award winning performer makes a dramatic personal revelation in this week’s episode of Australian Story.
She has been diagnosed with a life-changing medical condition.
Jenny Morris first found success with New Zealand band The Crocodiles, before relocating to Australia in the early 1980s.
After recording and touring with INXS as a backing singer, she established a successful solo career with hits such as ‘Break in the Weather’ and ‘She has to be Loved’ as well as performing with Prince and Paul McCartney.
About 10 years ago, she noticed something going on with her voice.
“I’ve never talked about it publicly, and I think putting the word out there is going to give a sense of relief. That’s why I’m doing Australian Story because I think if you want to know what’s what, look at this program. Then I don’t have to explain it,” she says.
