A touch of P!nk in tribute show
ALECIA Beth Moore, better known as P!nk, is an American singer who started as a member of the girl group Choice, and then rose to fame as an R&B artist with her debut solo album, Can't Take Me Home (2000).
Famous for her action-packed live shows, the American became a favourite among Australian audiences, becoming popular first here before reaching star status in the US.
She is so big in Australia, at age 35, P!nk is now the subject of her own all-Aussie tribute show.
Th!nk Pink, The Ultima Tribute, is a two-hour gig, a replica show to P!nk's latest tour.
Singer Kylie Clarke takes the starring role in the show, backed by a five-piece band and five dancers on stage to emulate the American's show.
"All the costumes have been done as an exact replica of the ones used by P!nk in her latest tours, plus the diamante-encrusted microphone and shoes," she said. "We have replicated the choreographies from P!nk tours for each one of the songs we have in the show."
Kylie Clark has replicated the last three P!nk tours, quickly updating costumes, choreographies and adding new songs as soon as the American star releases a new album.
The singer said she decided to try a P!nk tribute show after people attending her gigs asked to sing the American's songs.
"Once I started singing some of her songs people started commenting on how similar my voice is to hers," she said.
"The most negative feedback that we've ever got is also the most positive feedback that we have received: Once someone screamed at me 'you are miming, you are lip-syncing'. I thanked him for saying that.
"Out of all her songs, I love to sing How Come You Are Not Here because it's rocky. To listen to, my favourite is True Love."
You can see Th!nk Pink, the Ultima Tribute, at the Lismore Workers Club tomorrow from 8.30pm.
