A Memoir by Diana Trask with Alison Campbell – Rate
This is the story of a beautiful young girl from Melbourne Australia with
an outstanding voice who is invited to tour Australia as a support act
for Frank Sinatra in 1959. At the age of eighteen Diana Trask flies alone to New York to make her debut at the famous Blue Angel Night Club. Diana succeeds in popular music and then re-invents herself to carve out a new career as a successful country singer, touring the world and performing for fans in the USA, UK, Europe, Australia and Japan. But, it was not all smooth sailing.
Diana was one of the first popular Australian female singers to be
successful in the USA and many others followed: Helen Reddy, Olivia
Newton-John and in recent times Keith Urban. American audiences have fond memories of Diana’s appearances on the television series Sing Along with Mitch then her hit songs on the Country Billboard Charts. Australian fans will remember her national television series The Diana Trask Show.
In the book, Diana talks about her friendships and collaboration with superstars such as Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Bob Hope, Glen Campbell and many others, and reveals her struggles to find success in music and love. Feedback from fans is that this is one of the best autobiographies they have read.
