Tina Arena - Summary Details

Filippina Lydia Arena (born 1 November 1967), commonly known as Tina Arena, is an Italian-Australian singer-songwriter, musician, musical theatre actress, and record producer. She is one of Australia's highest selling female artists who has sold over 10 million records worldwide. Arena is an artist with the vocal range of a soprano and is multilingual: she sings live and records in English, Italian, French and Spanish. In April 2013 she was voted Australia's all-time greatest female singer, and third-greatest singer overall, in an industry poll conducted by music journalist, Cameron Adams, for the Herald Sun.

Arena has earned several international and national awards, including seven ARIA Awards, and two World Music Awards for 'Best-selling Australian Artist', which she received in 1996 and in 2000. In 2011, Arena became the first Australian to be awarded a Knighthood of the French National Order of National Merit, presented by the President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, for her contributions to French culture, and ceremonially awarded by Frédéric Mitterrand, the Minister of Culture and Communication of France. In 2012, Arena appeared as a judge and mentor on the revival of the Australian television variety programme Young Talent Time: the original Young Talent Time series had made her a household name in the 1970s and 1980s, as "Tiny Tina", which screened on Network Ten from 1971 to 1988. In October 2013, Arena released her first English album of original material in eleven years, titled Reset. In the same month, Arena published her first autobiography, titled Now I Can Dance, which has been reprinted four times. Also in 2013, Arena participated in the 13th Australian series of Dancing with the Stars, reaching third place behind Cosentino and Rhiannon Fish.

In September 2015, Arena hosted shows on SmoothFM Radio Stations from 4:00 pm every Saturday...
