Helen Reddy Plays Provincetown

By Charlotte Robinson, July 20, 2014
Multi Grammy award winner Helen Reddy is returning to Provincetown appearing at the Crown & Anchor for 2 shows July 21st & 22nd at 8P. After 2 sold out performances at the Crown last October Reddy will perform again in the Paramount room with her band singing all your favorite #1 selling hits to include: Delta Dawn & the ever popular "I am Woman". This is a perfect way to kick-off Girl Splash Week that runs July 22nd to 26th. Reddy's stardom kicked off in 1972 when her single "I Am Woman" reached No. 1 on the Hot 100. The song was co-written by Reddy with Ray Burton & Reddy has attributed the impetus for writing "I Am Woman" & her early awareness of the women's movement to expatriate Australian rock critic & pioneer feminist Lillian Roxon. Reddy is quoted in Fred Bronson's The Billboard Book of Number One Hits as saying that she was looking for songs to record which reflected the positive self-image she had gained from joining the women's movement but could not find any. Reddy stated, "I realized that the song I was looking for didn't exist & I was going to have to write it myself." "I Am Woman" earned a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Reddy infamously concluded her Grammy acceptance speech by thanking God "because She makes everything possible". The success of "I Am Woman" made Reddy the first native of Australia to top the US charts & also to win a Grammy. Don’t miss OUT!! :)
