Singing sensation Samantha Jade will perform and participate in the 2013 Credit Union Christmas Pageant thanks to Sony and event radio partner SA FM.

Announced this morning by SA FM’s Breakfast team, Michael, Hayley and Burgo, Samantha Jade will sing the National Anthem and one of her own well known hits at the start of the event before taking prime position on the Swinging on a Star float.

Credit Union Christmas Pageant Event Director, Brian Gilbertson said the news is very exciting as it is an event first and knows that Samantha Jade will have a magical experience on the big day.

“Samantha Jade will be welcomed with open arms by our Pageant community, thanks to SA FM together with Sony who are bringing Samantha to her very first Pageant appearance,” said Brian Gilbertson. 

Michael, Hayley and Burgo will be joining Samantha Jade as part of the Swinging on a Star contingent alongside the float interacting with the crowd.

“I am so excited to be coming to the 2013 Credit Union Christmas Pageant – it will be my first Pageant and I can’t wait to be a part of it,” said Samantha.

In late 2012, Samantha’s debut single “What You’ve Done To Me” shot straight to #1 on the Aria Singles Chart, whilst it’s accompanying album, recorded in a matter of just weeks, defiantly debuted at #3 on the Aria Albums Chart.

In 2013 the Pageant will be travelling a slightly different route around Victoria Square due to the current redevelopment. Event organisers encourage pageant-goers to study the route map carefully.
