Farewell Glad

Glad and Peter perform at the Senior Superstar Grand Final

Glad and Peter perform at the Senior Superstar Grand Final

It was very sad to hear of the passing of our very first Senior Superstar, Glad Graveson. Glad was given a Superstar farewell at her memorial service last week. She was admired and loved by so many people which was evident in the huge crowd that attended.
Glad had a most unique and captivating voice, she was also a character with a great sense of humour.
She regularly performed throughout Brisbane and was always well received.Her cd sales at these performances were always huge even outselling professional artists!
Glad will be missed by all but always remembered.

New time and date for Finalists and Favourites

Well it’s been a few funny old days! Illnesses, a shoulder injury, a fall, a last minute job commitment and even flooding have knocked our seniors for a sixer! So rather than let them miss out we have decided to reschedule this event. In order to give them time to make full recoveries and get back into form we will be staging the show still at the same venue but in a special morning concert.
So mark the date down now, we’d love to see you.
If you already have tickets to the original show, you will be contacted by the box office.

Fabulous Finale

Over 400 people came to be entertained and inspired by 12 talented seniors ranging in age from 59 to 83. A variety of songs from Broadway to pop and opera were performed as well as an exotic belly dance.
The Grand Finale performers
83 year old Bill Watson from Regents Park said he was “Happier than a Cheshire cat” to come in third place. Bill, is deaf in his left ear and only has 15% hearing in his right ear. He taught himself to play guitar and his fun and playful singing voice had him named Logan’s Satchmo.
Bill Watson
Dale Beazley from Beenleigh stepped out of the cabin of his Bobcat and onto the stage of the Logan Entertainment Centre. Dale’s voice, likened to a cross between Englebert Humperdink and Tom Jones, captivated the entire audience with his version of “You Raise Me Up”. When asked whether he sings while excavated Dale said he did but his work mates told him to shut up!
Dale Beazley
This years Logan Senior Superstar was Jackie Anderson 66 from Park Ridge. Jackie battled breast cancer earlier in the year and has bounced back by entering the series. She did not sing for 30 years and began to sing again after joining a singing group at her village. The group were finalists last year but were unable to enter due to people being away on holidays. She decided to enter by herself this year. Her version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” had a majority of the audience on their feet clapping for more.
Jackie Anderson
Because the talent was so exceptionally high, a special Senior Superstar Showcase featuring entrants from the series will be staged in early 2014 at Beenleigh. Stay tunes for further details.
Special thanks to all our supporters including Logan City Council, Logan Entertainment Centre, Cross Country Tours and Arts Queensland for ensuring the success of the series.
Dale, Jacke and Bill
