For the first time ever the Sydney Opera House had a specially designed float in the world famous Sydney Mardi Gras parade. Titled "Out At The House" the glittering float featured a sparkling version of the Opera House sails and was accompanied by 70 marching ushers, dancers and musicians from the Sydney Opera House and EnergyAustralia, many of whom are proud members of the LGBTQI+ community.

This wonderful video from the Sydney Opera House video features several songs from my "Pop Music" album. Listen here
