She’s proved she’s a talent at juggling singing and acrobatics on stage in Tel Aviv.
Now, Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke is juggling added responsibilities since coming to ground and back to Australia, recently collaborating with global artists as part of a writing camp.
Working alongside Australian artists and up-and-coming singers, the APRA Song Hub song camp gathers talented artists from around the world, as well inspiring a new crop of chart topping artists. The event also proved to be an unexpected but were-totally-living-for-it collaboration between Kate and Estonia’s Kerli, who has experienced recent success on Eesti Laul back in 2017 with “Spirit Animal”.
Speaking to 7News, Kate described the event as a ‘beautiful melting pot of colliding influence’. She shared some colourful advice that Kerli gave her when working on their collaboration:
“Working with the pop-star Kerli from Estonia, she said to me “Kate, (the song camp) is just like doing porn – once they’ve seen your bits, it’s fine, you’re over it!””
In previous years, the song camp has raised $2 million Australian dollars in royalties for its song writers, and released 150 tracks for major commercial artists. Could we see another KMH-penned track make its way to Australia Decides for 2020?
Kate’s also in the middle of her big land down under tour, having recently performed at Sydney’s most iconic Opera House. And while her operatic performance alongside the Sydney shoreline was a public affair, she’s rumoured as appearing behind a mask on Australia’s version of The Masked Singer.

In one week I’ll be living the dream and playing the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House, before heading out to a bunch of beautiful theatres around the country. I’m so excited I could pee.

Australia’s Mamamia is hotly tipping the Eurovision singer to be behind the spider costume, with the web of life alluding to her performances across the globe, including previously at Coachella and at Eurovision this year. And while you can’t quite hear the operatic tones Kate usually hits in her cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic”, Kate is a master of sounds and may be trying to throw her audience.
