Naarah | Gija tribe from The Kimberley, Western Australia
As part of the Resilience in Isolation program, Naarah performs an intimate version of Will You Love Me Tomorrow – a sincere, honest moment in the musical where Carole King writes about her fellow songwriter and lover Gerry Goffin.
This beautiful moment on stage shows a younger Carole playing and singing on the piano, where she’d write many of her upcoming hits she’d be made famous for. For many years, Naarah’s dream role has been Carole in BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King Musical. Naarah grew up listening to the music of Carole King and describes her songwriting as a heartfelt cup of tea for the soul.
Naarah was singing before she was talking and dancing before she was walking. Naarah has always been destined for a life on the stage – sharing stories and songs for live audiences. With her passion for music lies within her First Nations cultural tradition of storytelling and the magic of both watching and creating live performances. She currently works in musical theatre and pre-COVID was touring all around Australia for 170+ shows as the fabulously sassy Cynthia in The Sapphires.
YIRRAMBOI’s Resilience in Isolation program supports our First Nations creatives to continue their creative practices and development during the isolation.
