Congratulations to Darryl Lovegrove for the “Darryl & Harmony” Duo announced as the ‘Entertainer of the Year’ 2012 in the Australian Event Awards!!!
The Australian Event Awards is the pinnacle awards program for the events industry in Australia and the only opportunity for Australian events and event organisers to be acknowledged on a level playing field, across the entire national events industry.
Sandy Hollway (former CEO SOCOG) and John Allen AM, co-chairs of the industry judging panel said of the win “Congratulations on developing a ‘product’ that clearly meets the needs of a diverse (and difficult to please) audience. We were all in tears”.
Harmony and Darryl are a Father-Daughter duo which is a rarity in the events industry. They are totally unique in the sense that Harmony is only 12 years old and therefore the youngest performer to be nominated for or to win an Australian Event Award.
Both able to perform almost any musical genre with ease, they entertain from a diverse repertoire including opera, Broadway blockbusters and contemporary hits. In demand from Charity, Corporate and private-event clients, they offer something both novel and special. Said Julie Leeming from O’Brien Foundation Victoria, “having a child on-stage brings an entirely new dimension to an event. The purity and innocence makes an audience feel joyous and forget about the seriousness of life for a moment – it’s wonderful”.
Highlights include The Prayer, Time to say Goodbye and Somewhere from West Side Story, What the World Needs Now by Burt Bacharach and Puccini’s legendary Nessun Dorma.
