The Tina Arena Room
Tina Arena has been a household name in Australia for over forty years, ever since she stole the nation’s hearts as a child star on Young Talent Time. A singer-songwriter, musician, musical theatre actress, and record producer, Arena is one of the country’s highest selling female artists, with over 10 million records sold worldwide. Arena has earned several international and national awards, including seven ARIA Awards, and two World Music Awards for ‘Best-selling Australian Artist’, which she received in 1996 and in 2000.
Arena is Italian-Australian and sings in English, Spanish, French and Italian. She was the first Australian to be awarded a Knighthood of the French National Order of National Merit, presented by the President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, for her contributions to French culture. She is a member of the ARIA Hall of Fame and has said that “if it wasn’t for Australia, I would never have been able to have been catapulted internationally and to have done the things that I’ve been able to do. It was because of Australia that I’ve done that”.
