Reddy was immensely successful as a singer in the 1970s with numerous hit records including three U.S. #1 singles. She has sold more than 15 million albums and 10 million singles, and was the first Australian-born performer to win a Grammy award. In 1974, she became a naturalized citizen of the United States, but currently lives near Sydney, Australia.

She has won a Grammy Award, appeared on Broadway and feature films, and was credited with writing and singing one of the most iconic and culturally significant songs of the 1970s, “I Am Woman”.

Born and raised in Australia, Reddy became a naturalized United States citizen in 1974. In 2002, she retired from performing concerts and recording and now resides in Sydney, Australia and was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame in 2006.

    Helen Reddy has been my idon since 1973.I sang her songs with my guitar for years and years.Her music helped me be a better writer and singer.I have a scrapbook she signed when she was performing in Claremont NH so many years ago.She noticed a picture in there of herself and her half sister Toni Lammond when they were just maybe four and eight years old.Just a guess on the ages.They were with their Grandparents and they were sitting on a bench.Helen asked me where I got the picture.I said my mom had a pen pal in Australia who mailed it to her to give to me.I still can imitate Helen.Honestly!But when I told her I did that she said,"You have to be yourself"Well yes,and I am myself but just loved her voice.She had a picture taken with my daughter Kathleen who was about ten back then.She said she would mail it but I never got it:( My mom brought me to the Music Hall in Boston when I was a kid to see Helen perform.There is no bigger an of Helen Reddy than Me.I dream of meeting her again.

    v Same here -- my mom always listened to Helen Reddy as I was growing up, so I knew all of the lyrics to her songs before I had even decided that I liked her.
