Australian singer, songwriter, and musician, Judith Durham, has passed away at the age of 79.
Born on July 3, 1943, in Essendon, Australia, Judith became the lead singer of the Australian popular folk music group the Seekers in 1963.
The group has sold over 50 million records worldwide after it subsequently became the first Australian pop music group to achieve major chart and sales success in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Durham left the group in mid-1968 to pursue her solo career.
Though she remained primarily a solo performer, Judith began to make sporadic recordings and performances with The Seekers in 1993.
She was named Victorian of the Year on July 1, 2015, for her services to music and a range of charities.
A collection of 14 previously unreleased songs was released on the album “So Much More” to celebrate Durham’s 75th birthday in June 2018.
Durham passed away on August 5, 2022, at the age of 79.
