Just When You Think Ricki-Lee Coulter’s Career Is Dead She Recovers

Props to Ricki-Lee Coulter for doing a lazaurs like return to the lime light with news she has signed a huge record contract overseas.

The Daily Telegraphreports the former Australian Idol star has signed a worldwide singing contract with EMI.

RICKI-LEE Coulter was about to turn her back on her music career when an American hit-maker convinced her she had the goods to keep going.

Now the formerly independent artist has signed a worldwide deal with major label EMI and will relaunch her chart fortunes with a “world-class” pop song Raining Diamonds.

Coulter’s love affair with music began again after she emailed American producer and songwriter Billy Mann, who has penned hits for Pink, Ricky Martin, Kelly Rowland and dozens of pop stars.

Mann checked into Coulter’s background and invited her to New York to work with him and his producer protege BoyBlue.

Coulter said Raining Diamonds, one of the first songs they wrote together, is her ticket to take Australian pop to the world and demonstrate our artists can match it with the American superstars.

“I’m enjoying challenging myself,” she said. “I want to raise the bar and set a new standard for Australian pop artists. I respect Beyonce and Gaga because they push the limits and set the standard. No one in Australia really sings, dances, writes and is so entrenched in the whole music creation process. I want to up the ante and prove we can be that good as well.”

Single-minded about her return to music after stints in television and radio, Coulter said her pop career is now her priority.

Raining Diamonds is all about knowing your value and not settling for less than what you believe you are worth,” she said.

The single is on iTunes now.

Also if you click the links to The Daily Telegraph you are able to listen to the song it is down the bottom of the article.

Good luck to her I have always been a fan.

Good luck to her *sigh*
Until she finds them missing 10Ks of volupu-osicity that made her way more attractive than all the other TV bimbettes, she’ll remain dead to me *sigh*
such a tragic waste of curvaliciousness

“Raining Diamonds” reminds me a little too much of the Barry Humphries chestnut “‘ If It Was Raining Virgins I’d Be Locked In A Dunny With A P*** “

she has always been a great talent singing/looks/personality wise, hopefully her career will finally take off.

By the way congrats on making the front page of mX yesterday! Hopefully you will be inundated with requests soon. Youre the talk of the town!

Another ‘Aussie star’ made in NZ.

At least she’s more shaggable than Russell Crowe (for boys and girls alike I hasten to add)

Now that’s a matter of opinion – neither appeal to me, shaggably that is.

Sorry she’s a sell out.. I was a fan until every single front cover was about her selling her story of ‘curvy and proud’–> ‘now i’m skinny’ BORING!!
