Sue Collier has been a volunteer prison chaplain with Inside Out Prison Chaplaincy for four years, but decades prior, she was a popular singer who entertained audiences around Australia and abroad.
Sue started singing professionally at the age of 15, the start of an entertainment career spanning 35 years. Under the name Toni McCann she released garage pop-rock singles such as ‘My Baby’ and the theme tune for Australian music show Saturday Date. Changing her name to Toni McRae, she recorded her first album Banjo Flat and married musician Royce Nicholas.
Performing together as Toni & Royce, the duo released three albums and several singles, performed for troops at military bases in Far East Asia and
Europe, played in UK clubs, appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and toured Queensland Arts Council children’s programs
around Australian schools for nine years.
Now Sue has released her first original music since the 1980s, a new EP of original Christian songs entitled You Might Be the One.
I got to interview Sue about her brand new EP, as well as her journey as both a musician and a chaplain. If you missed it on air, check it out below.
