In 2006, Kelly released her second album Ms. Kelly that included international hits “Like This” and “Work”. Throughout her career, Kelly has sold over 30 million records as a solo artist and a further 60 million records with Destiny’s Child.

Kelly said of her upcoming appearance “I’m coming back Australia! I’m really excited to be returning down under to perform at The TAB Everest!”

The Australian Turf Club’s Executive General Manager of Commercial, Corina Black said: “We are delighted to welcome Kelly Rowland to perform as the headline artist in The Theatre of the Horse at this year’s Everest at Royal Randwick.
