Spotlight On interviews multi award-winning Fem Belling on her journey from South Africa to theatre and jazz stages across the world while living in the UK and Australia.
A multi-award winner spanning three continents, Belling shot to international attention in Australia, turning all 4 chairs on The Voice with Ricky Martin, Jessie J & Delta Goodrem fighting for the chance to mentor her.
Fem Belling made a name for herself in musical theatre, gaining impressive career credits from her teenage days in Oklahoma, to other highlights including Little Shop of Horrors, Nunsense, Joseph & his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – where she was the first female narrator – Mr Bones, CATS and more.
She has performed at countless international Jazz festivals in a diverse array of countries and shared the stage with the likes of Gregory Porter, Femi Kuti, Hugh Masekela and more.
Co-Producer Collett Dawson says of Belling: “Fem Belling is one of the most electrifying vocalists to watch on stage – whether it be musical theatre or one of her many Jazz projects. And then she picks up her violin and shows her music prowess too – a dynamic performer so worthy of her many, many awards she’s won in South Africa, England and Australia.”
