With his new critically acclaimed single Run To You currently hitting the Australia charts, Greg will open the show in Sydney’s Ivy Ballroom on September 30 with his unique brand of high energy vocals that saw him and his band take out the runner up spot in the popular talent show in 2013.
Greg, who recently came out as a gay man, takes inspiration from Australian singers Tina Arena and Guy Sebastian as well as British singer-songwriter Sam Smith.
Greg will replace jazz and blues performer Mojo Juju who was slated to perform but has had to cancel due to scheduling issues.
Greg will join the 30 finalists, a raft of celebrities and over 350 guests for an inspirational evening that recognises outstanding achievements within or contributions to NSW’s LGBTI community.
