She’s always had that celebrity ‘sparkle’ factor and now pop star, Kylie Minogue, will be putting her shine on the famous firework display that takes place every New Year’s Eve in Sydney, Australia.  While she is better known for her songs such as “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” “Wow,” and “Illusion,” Minogue will step off the stage to be in charge of choosing the themes and colors for the show.
The top official for the city, Clover Moore, reports that 43-year-old music icon will spend the next nine months alongside the pyrotechnic creative teams for the show to add her own ‘special brand of sparkle’ to the event.
The annual pyrotechnic blowout is one of the most famous in the world with the harbor and famous opera house setting the backdrop for an amazing firework show.  Because of Australia’s location on the globe, residents are some of the first to usher in the New Year with a bang – as millions of spectators around the world tune in with anticipation.
Last year, the Sydney show attracted 1.5 million people to the harbor to watch the fireworks in person, bringing in $156 million to the local economy. It will be interesting to see what Minogue’s ‘star touch’ brings to the skies, stay tuned!
