Ricki-Lee Coulter will sing the national anthem at the Australian Grand Prix

Australian singer Ricki-Lee Coulter has been given the honour of singing the Australian national anthem at the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The 26-year-old shot to stardom as a contestant on Australian Idol, and is one of the franchise’s few graduates to have really carved a successful career in the years that have followed.

Coulter recently released her second studio album, and has also gone on to release several platinum-selling singles, including Hell No!, Sunshine, Can’t Touch It, and Raining Diamonds.

“I am so excited. Singing the national anthem is such a huge honour, but in saying that there is a lot of pressure to do it well,” she told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph newspaper.

Having heard Ms Coulter perform similar duties during the A1GP visits to Australia, we will attest to her singing prowess and wish her well.
