Rachael Leahcar

Singer/songwriter Rachael Leahcar’s dynamic range, explosive vocals and powerful performances have stunned audiences across the globe.

Rachael smashed Australian television records and was nominated for TV moment of the year in the AACTA Awards when 4.1 million people tuned in to watch her Blind Audition on the first season of The Voice (2012). With a career that has seen herrelease four top 10 ARIA charting albums, tour live shows to sold out crowds and travel to Italy to sing with Andrea Bocelli’s orchestra, Rachael has shown that she is capable of achieving anything despite being legally blind.

Rachael’s last album, Shadows (2017), debuted at #5 on the Australian Album ARIA Chart. Shadows marks Rachael’s transformation from a shy teen to a strong young woman. Following the win of People’s Choice Pop Award in the South Australian

Music Awards, Rachael embarked on her biggest tour yet of Australia with a focus on showcasing her songwriting.

Bolder than ever, Rachael has learned to expose not only her vulnerabilities, her fears and regrets but also to share her message of resilience and determination to face the world head on through music. Rachael has the charming ability to hold an audience in the palm of her hand with emotional moments one minute and singing and dancing the next. With her signature hauntingly beautiful vocals, Rachael has revealed more of her story previously hidden in the shadows.

Rachael has performed the national anthem for many events including the Slowdown and Adelaide 500 (aired on television nationally), toured a cabaret show about her life called Colours Of My Life in SA, participated in SA Tourism’s latest campaign and released a single of an Ave Maria duet with The Voice 2017 artist and fellow legally blind singer, Lara Nakhle. This year, Rachael has performed at the

The barton Theatre with the Hindley Street Country Club band to a sold-out crowd and completed Australian Radio School’s Intro to Radio course. She has also been cast as Eve in the feature film Standing Up For Sunny, alongside RJ Mitte, Philippa Northeast and Barry Humphries, which debuted recently at the Sydney Film Festival.

Rachael is set to tour her Colours Of My Life show around Australia and release her fifth album, a Christmas album including more captivating duets and in six different languages before Christmas.

Rachael loves to motivate others to challenge their limits with her public speaking. In the past she has appeared for the Royal Society for the Blind, CanDo4Kids, Julia Farr Association, Halogen Foundation and most recently, She The Change as part of a women’s empowerment event. Along with her speaking, she is passionate about philanthropy, having been an ambassador for the Royal Society for the Blind since 2011, as well as supporting other causes she’s passionate about such as the Cancer Council, Starlight Foundation, CanDo4Kids and Cure Brain Cancer. She also participated in the Great Cycle Challenge where she raised funds for Childhood Cancer research last year. She believes that helping others is the most important thing she can do for the world.
