Gabriella Cilmi is set to rock the Grand Prix with two massive performances.
The 18-year-old starlet, who first won the hearts of Aussies back in ’08 with her debut Lessons to Be Learned, will gear up this year's crowd on March 28 with an on-grid performance of the national anthem. Cilmi's also set to hit the stage at the Grand Prix Ball on March 26.
The Melbourne-born singer and songwriter spent most of 2009 overseas, collaborating with some of the industry’s finest.
With the release of her sophomore record Ten pegged for March, Cilmi recently hit the scene with the upbeat and disco-infused track “On A Mission.”
Cilmi says she’s pumped to be heading home to be involved in this world premier racing event. “I’m really looking forward to being a part of the GP action and can’t wait to come home to perform in front of a hometown audience,” she says.
“I will be cheering our Aussie champions Mark Webber and Lewis Hamilton – because he is a hottie.”
Last year roughly 100 million viewers tuned in to catch the 2009 F1 Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park, and this year numbers are tipped to be even higher.
