It’s been 19 years since Nikki Webster performed ‘Under the Southern Skies’ at the Sydney Olympics. Now she’s back in the spotlight, but did she ever leave?
Most Australian’s are familiar with Nikki for her spectacular performance at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Following that she earned a record contract with BMG and debuted her single ‘Strawberry Kisses’ which reached number 2 on the Australian singles charts in 2001 holding the position for 7 weeks. This was the song that earned her the title of “one hit wonder”, but was she really?

Nikki Webster is not really a one hit wonder. Her debut album Follow Your Heart also went platinum with second single “Depend on Me” going top 20 and third single “The Best Days”/”Over the Rainbow” reaching number 21. Webster’s 2002 BLISS album also went gold with a cover of American girl group P.Y.T.’s “Something More Beautiful” reaching No. 13 and going gold, while the second single “24/7 (Crazy ’bout Your Smile)” also reached the top 20.

She has also appeared in many TV commercials including Twisties, Lays chips and Campbell’s soup. When she was 10 years old, Webster played the Young Cosette in Les Misérables, and in 1999-2000 starred as Brigitta Von Trapp in a stage production of The Sound of Music, alongside Lisa McCune, John Waters and Bert Newton. Wow, just wow!
