Sia was born this way!
Sia will kick off The "We Are Born" tour to promote her latest critically-acclaimed album, We Are Born. Electro-pop songstress Oh Land is set to open for the eclectic singer when the US tour kicks off in Minneapolis on July 21st and runs through the rest of the summer. Oh Land is one of the most talked about new artists for 2011, with her whimsical mix of layered vocal loops, electro-pop beats and her tech-savvy captivating live performance, so this will be a fun one.
Sia is set to appear on NBC's new highly-rated reality competition show, The Voice in May, as one of Christina Aguilera's advisors. That's a cushy job.
Fans have long supported Sia, loyally following her career from Zero 7 and Six Feet Under's "Breathe Me" to early last year when she headlined a sold-out US tour. The talented singer-songwriter continues to captivate new audiences with collaborations and songs on other projects. She received a 2011 Golden Globe "Best Original Song" nomination for "Bound to You," a song she co-wrote with Christina Aguilera, from the film Burlesque. Additionally, the Australian native's song "My Love," featured on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media.
