Mackay to Manhattan follows the story of a small town girl with big dreams who believes “It is Never Too Late To Recalculate” to get to your dream destination in life.

Writing songs from the age of seven in her home town of Mackay, Australia, when Karen Jacobsen saw Olivia Newton-John on television, she knew what she wanted to do with her life. She wanted to become a professional singer and move to America.

Unexpectedly, along the way Karen’s speaking voice ended up in over a billion GPS devices and as the original Australian voice of Siri in iPhones.

Karen’s musical memoir of that journey is performed solo at the grand piano; part concert, part motivational experience.

To look at her, it may seem like it was a breeze, but Karen has been to the brink.

She shares how she navigated her way through debilitating anxiety and financial disaster, and if you have ever had a moment of doubt in your life, this show will quickly give you the experience you are not alone.

Be ready to be entertained, inspired and hear the “only woman men will take directions from” in this very special Queensland artist event.
