Helen Reddy To Receive Ted Albert Award for Outstanding Services to Australian Music

The late Helen Reddy will receive one of two Ted Albert Awards for Outstanding Services to Australian Music at the APRA Music Awards for 2021.

Helen was to receive the award in 2020 but Covid caused a reformatting of the event. Helen died in September, before the 2021 awards were announced.

Traci Donat, Helen’s daughter said: “I am so honoured to be accepting The Ted Albert Award on behalf of my mother who devoted her life and career to equal rights for all people. And in honouring her you honour not just her music but also what she stood for. We couldn’t be more deeply moved and grateful.”

The 2021 recipient of the Ted Albert Award for Outstanding Services to Australian Music will be revealed in April.

The nominees for the 2021 APRA Music Awards will be announced Thursday 25 March.
