Congratulations to Beccy Cole:
Her controversial song Poster Girl, which promotes pride in Australian troops, was named the Single of the Year and the APRA Song of the Year.
Cole wrote it in response to a fan’s letter of criticism for the artist performing for Australian soldiers serving in Iraq.
“I’m absolutely thrilled, thrilled beyond belief,” she told the audience.
“I don’t want this to be my moment, I want it to be a moment when we think about the diggers past and present who do such a great job for our country. They’re incredible people.”
Controversial? I prefer this description, from AAP:
The 34-year-old’s patriotic single Poster Girl was also named APRA Song Of The Year and Single Of The Year.
