Winning the QUBE Effect People's Choice Award
Posted by Francesca de Valence on Monday, June 27, 2016
It was announced live on 612ABC Breakfast Radio with Spencer Howson and it really was a huge shock. I didn't expect an announcement just like that, so I wasn't nervous or even prepared to say anything. Watch the video of the live radio interview here. The cameras were a sneaky addition from ABC radio - my reaction is just hilarious.
I performed at the Brisbane Powerhouse that night right after I was presented with my very first novelty cheque - this one for $4000. I also won the City Hall Performance Award, which means the Brisbane City Council will put on a concert for me at the stunning City Hall (the gorgeous building below)
The week after all this excitement I formally addressed the Lord Mayor in full council and presented the city with a handmade papier mach love heart from the All the Love video.
Thank you to everyone for supporting me and voting. What a ride!
