MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 14, 2009 23 Alive Join a group 24 Trio honours classic soul Nessa Morgan, Roshani Priddis and Madam Parker. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP273664 WHAT: Women of Soul WHERE: Canterbury- Hurlstone Park RSL DETAILS: 9559 0000 OMAR HAMWI BRING your dancing shoes. Former Australian Idol contestant Roshani Priddis is performing in Women of Soul at Canterbury- Hurlstone Park RSL next month. The 21-year-old Ashfield resident will cover classic soul numbers alongside singers Nessa Morgan and Madam Parker. ''This show is basically about honouring great soul artists like Michael Jackson, Patti LaBelle and Donna Summer to name a few,'' Priddis said. The Sri Lankan native said her favourite song was the original 1974 version of Lady Marmalade by girl-group Labelle. She has so many influences so it was hard to pick a favourite -- singing has always been a big part of her life. Priddis grew up in Tamworth and attended Sydney's Talent Development Project while she completed the HSC. After so much success with Idol last year she is ready to wow the crowds in Women of Soul. She hinted there will be a little diversion during the performance. ''We plan on having an acoustic set in the middle of the show. It's a new thing and still under construction, but we're looking forward to trying it out,'' she said. ''If you love soul music and R&B then this is the show for you.'' The trio will perform a selection of ballads accompanied by smooth dance moves. Since Australian Idol Priddis has been working on building her singing career. ''Things have been good and bad since I finished Idol. But post-Idol is harder than actually being on the show. I'm going underground for a while so I can write some new material and play gigs. I'm trying to build my credibility.''
