Former Australian Idol, winner of “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here” and amazing songstress Casey Donovan performed to a packed house at taste Canowindra last Saturday, May 13. 

Owner of taste Canowindra, Robert Craven, said it was an evening both the audience and staff at taste won’t forget. 

“It was just amazing, I mean not only is she a wonderful performer, she's a wonderful person,” he said. 

“We had a full house.” 

Not only did she wow the crowd with her incredible voice, Bob said she spent a lot of time interacting and taking photos with the crowd. 

“She was so generous with people after the show,” he said. 

“She was so patient, even the staff wanted pictures to take home to their children. 

“There were a few kids in the audience, which was wonderful.” 

Robert said her personality shines through, despite going through a number of tough years and having her personal life dragged into the media. 

“I think Adele has crystalised something with the public, has changed public opinion, it’s really hard for big people, they don’t get a fair go,” Robert said. 

“She’s battled with that through her career but she’s just got an outstanding voice.” 

Robert said it’s great to see her back in the spotlight.

“She’s nailed it this year, her brilliant personality came through in the jungle, she had a knockout performance at Logies,” he said. 

“Everything she touches at the moment turns to gold.”

Casey has two more shows at taste Canowindra after her first one sold out in 48 hours. 

“We’ve booked out a show on July 22 and she's good enough to do an afternoon one on July 23,” Robert said. 

”We’ve already sold 11 tickets to that afternoon performance.”
