About Anthony

Anthony Callea is undoubtedly one of Australia’s finest vocalists and performers. The Aria Award winner has undeniably one of this country’s most powerful, passionate and pure voices. His debut single The Prayer became Australia’s fastest and highest selling single of all time with sales in excess of 4 x platinum and was at the top of the charts for an amazing 5 weeks.
Anthony followed his debut single with another multi-platinum number 1 single, Rain/Bridge Over Troubled Water and a self-titled multi-platinum number 1 selling album. Another two top 10 hits came off this debut album with Hurts so Bad and Per Sempre. His sophomore album A New Chapter was accredited Gold and featured two top 20 singles with Live for Love and Addicted To You. Anthony also released a Live Concert DVD, which debuted at No 3 on the Aria DVD Charts, sold Platinum and later screened as a television music special on Foxtel.

Along with headlining his own national tours, Anthony has toured with Celine Dion, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Westlife and was hand picked to perform for Luciano Pavarotti, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark. He has also starred in musical productions such as Wicked, Dead Man Walking and Rent.

Late 2012, Anthony toured and performed with Tina Arena and the Symphony Orchestras around the country and then returned early 2013 for encore performances. Anthony was also invited to perform at the Prime Ministers Olympian Dinner to celebrate our Australian Olympic team before they head off for the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Anthony’s engaging television presence has been witnessed with mentoring roles on Foxtel’s Ultimate School Musical, 2 series of Channel 7’s It Takes Two and countless performances on shows such as Sunrise, The Morning Show and Ten Late News. This year marks Anthony’s 10th consecutive year on Channel 9’s Carols By Candlelight, and his cheeky side has been seen on Channel 10’s Can Of Worms, The Project and Channel 7’s Slide Show.

Anthony has also accumulated a string of awards including an Aria Award along with 3 further Aria nominations, Channel V Artist of the Year, Pop Republic Artist of the Year, MTV Viewers’ Choice Award, Variety’s Young Entertainer of the Year, MO Award, Dolly Teen Choice Award and a Gospel Music Award.

In October 2011, Anthony released a dance track Oh Oh Oh Oh, co written with the Black Eye Peas’ DJ Poet. March 2012 saw Anthony release Last To Go from the EP also titled Last To Go. Tracks from the EP were co written in Los Angeles and Australia with the likes of Paul Mac, Matt Morris and Jaakko Salovarra. Last To Go EP is out now on iTunes. Anthony has taken his dynamic vocals and energetic performance style to Los Angeles and Las Vegas where he performed to packed houses in West Hollywood and the famous Planet Hollywood on the Vegas strip.

Anthony’s album titled THIRTY debuted in Top 20 on the Aria Album Charts. Celebrating his 30th birthday in December 2012, Anthony re-discovered the songs that influenced him over the years, and in turn delivered his own musical stamp on these stunningly written tracks. THIRTY includes both covers and original compositions penned by Anthony, and celebrates thirty years of the most beautifully written music.

In 2013, not only did he release THIRTY but the much anticipated album This Is Christmas. This Is Christmas features 12 songs that Anthony has performed live over the years at Carols By Candlelight, recorded with a 55 piece orchestra, The National Boys Choir, featuring a duet with Tim Campbell and produced by the one and only John Foreman. THIRTY and This Is Christmas are out now through ABC/Universal and available now in store and on iTunes.

2013 through to March 2014 saw Anthony tread the Musical Theatre boards once again with a special guest feature role of Johnny Casino in Grease The Musical. Night after night, Anthony’s performance was a crowd favourite and received rave reviews.

In May 2014, Anthony took to the stage for what was meant to be a one off performance celebrating the music of George Michael. It has been 30 years since George Michael released his first solo single, Careless Whisper. After a sell out concert of Ladies & Gentlemen, The Songs of George Michael months leading up to his performance, he is now taking the concert to theatres touring nationally in September & October. To coincide with this national tour, Anthony released this concert experience on DVD that was filmed at the Palms at Crown with bonus live CD through ABC/Universal Music. It went on to debut at No 1 on the Aria DVD charts and later in the year was was showcased as an exclusive TV special on Foxtel.
