Danni Da Ros is famously remembered for her stunning rendition of Jennifer Hudson’s ‘And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going’ for her blind audition for 'The Voice' Australia.
Singing since the age of three, Danni made it through to the Top Four in Team Delta and looks back on 'The Voice' with fond memories. “It was amazing. What a great show to be part of. I was excited that I got as far as I did as I’ve been working for a very, very long time towards something like that.”
'The Voice' isn’t the end for Danni. She is recording and performing everywhere and anywhere before her own original album comes out late this month. “I’ve been doing so much writing and recording and I’ll be releasing a track with a DJ [Nick Skitz] sometime in September and working on my own original album. I’m just doing heaps of performing.”
Danni is certainly getting her name out there being the headline act for 'Broadway Unplugged' along with Graham Foote and Michelle Smitheram from 'Jersey Boys' and Luke Kennedy from 'The Ten Tenors'; something that she is looking forward to.
“'Jersey Boys' is one of my favourite musicals so I’m really excited to see them perform and 'The Ten Tenors' is a beautiful group so Luke should be fantastic.”
Da Ros, Foote, Smitheram and Kennedy perform first before the open mic part of the night starts. Ten aspiring musical theatre students get to take the stage in front of judges Nathanael Cooper and Alison St Ledger, something that Danni wishes that she had as an up-and-comer.
“Any venue that is allowing young performers to get up on stage in a nice atmosphere with a supportive crowd is a great thing for performers because there is not a lot of that around. Any chance that these kids or young adults get before a live crowd is great experience especially if they're auditioning for roles as they can bounce off some ideas and receive feedback from the judges.”
