About Marcia Hines

Australia’s beloved musical treasure, Marcia Hines, has enjoyed a stellar career spanning five decades. With 22 albums to her name, she has sold 2.6 million copies and produced countless chart-topping singles and multi-platinum records. Marcia's journey from Boston, Massachusetts to Sydney at just 16 to star in the Australian production of Hair set the stage for her illustrious career.

Marcia made history as the first black woman to star in Jesus Christ Superstar, continually setting industry benchmarks and inspiring women and Australians everywhere. Her relentless advocacy for diabetes awareness has further solidified her role as a prominent public figure.

From 2003 to 2009, Marcia became a household name as a beloved judge on Australian Idol, where she mentored and inspired countless aspiring singers. Her contributions to the Australian entertainment industry were recognized with her induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007 and receiving the Order of Australia (AM) in 2009.

Marcia's dynamic career continued with her starring role in the hit fringe festival stage production Velvet, which began in Adelaide in 2015 and toured globally. In January 2019, she headlined a new Spiegeltent production, Pigalle, a sell-out hit at the Sydney Festival. She then starred in Saturday Night Fever at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre, a spectacular stage production inspired by the film and the Bee Gees’ soundtrack, which played to sold-out audiences and featured Timomatic and Paulini.

Despite the challenges of 2020, Marcia's role in Shrek The Musical was curtailed by the lockdown, but she continued to shine in her starring role in Velvet Rewired at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, earning acclaim from both the public and critics.

Marcia Hines’ ability to reinvent herself and remain at the pinnacle of Australian entertainment is a testament to her talent, dedication, and resilience.
