Renée Geyer, one of Australia’s finest soul singers, has been inducted into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame.

The veteran performer received her award last night at Melbourne’s Billboard nightclub. “This award means so much – it is a career-topping milestone and I’m thrilled to be the first female solo inductee to The Age Music Victoria Hall Of Fame,” she said.

Renée performed a 45-minute set of her greatest hits with a band featuring Daddy Cool’s Ross Hannaford of guitar and songwriter Mark Punch, who wrote her classic ‘Heading In The Right Direction’ almost 40 years ago.

“On a night when Renée Geyer was recognised for her enormous contribution to the music industry, we’ve also seen some of Victoria’s best talent on show,” The Age Shortlist editor Martin Boulton said.

Renée performed ‘Heading In The Right Direction’, ‘Say I Love You’ and ‘It’s A Mans, Mans World’ before being joined by Dan Sultan to sing the Sam Cooke classic ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’.
