This diverse mix of Australian female artists will come together on November 25 during the ARIA ceremony to perform Reddy’s 1972 feminist anthem ‘I Am Woman’.

Reddy was born in Melbourne in 1941 and found international acclaim with ‘I Am Woman’. It charted at Number One on the Billboard charts six months after it’s release and earned Reddy the Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal the following year.

The ARIA Hall Of Fame inductee passed away in September this year, at the age of 78. Shortly after, her I Am Woman biopic was released in Australia on Stan.

In September, ARIA announced that it would be going ahead with this year’s ARIA Awards despite challenges posed by COVID-19 restrictions. To combat that, ARIA said the 2020 event will proceed without an audience, but with performers and hosts still present for the live event in Sydney.

It will be hosted by Goodrem among others, including former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Kylie Minogue, Fleetwood Mac‘s Mick Fleetwood, Robbie Williams and more.

Lime Cordiale and Tame Impala are leading the charge with eight and seven nominations respectively, including Best Group and Best Pop Release. Sampa The Great follows with six nominations, as well as DMA’S and Miiesha with five.

The ceremony will be aired live on the Nine Network from 7.30pm AEDT. The pre-show, performances and highlights of the night will also be available to watch on the ARIA YouTube.
