Grace Knight. Still Cool.


With Aria nominations and chart topping recordings in each of the past three decades, Grace Knight has had a career spanning over thirty five years. 
She blew audiences away throughout the eighties as lead singer of internationally successful band Eurogliders, lit up the screen in ABC TV’s award winning mini-series, "Come In Spinner" and during her jazz career, Grace has done performances for five Australian Prime Ministers, President Clinton of the United States, Princess Diana, and the Thai Royal Family.



Grace writes on her Facebook, "A couple of months ago we did a fundraiser at Healesville High School to help some young friends of mine, Emily & Thomas McKenzie, raise money to build some school classrooms in Kenya. They had the official opening a couple of weeks ago and have started work on the next lot of rooms. These are some photos from the day. It would be great if you could give their page a like at: https://www.facebook.com/chepkinoiyobuildingproject
The plan is to raise some more money and get water and electricity connected. If you'd like to make a donation the details are on the link above.....all of the money goes directly to the school and results happen very quickly. GK
