This is Part 3 of a 4-part program featuring the Life & Times of Marcie Jones, where we explore and share some of the life of the iconic Australian vocalist – Marcie Jones.
Over the past two weeks we have learned that Marcies desire to be a singer and performer goes back to her early years in a music oriented family, where she would perform on the family table.
At the age of 15 circumstances resulted in her singing with the Thunderbirds and from there her career exploded with both solo performances and performances with Marcie & The Cookies on both TV, local dances and national tours.
Marcie finds herself missing Australia, her family and Normie so she returns alone, leaving the Cookies behind.
Having formed a deep relationship with Aussie heart-throb Normie Rowe, they had became engaged but on returning to Australia Marcie finds that Normie had been hurt by her breaking her promise to be there to meet him on his return to Vietnam.
The engagement was then of however, as we will learn that friendship has survived and gone from strength to strength right through until today.
Marcie’s stories allow us to learn more about her family and her deep connection with it, and how she connected with Murray Robertson of the Thunderbirds, who is now her life-partner.
There are so many stories which include but are not limited to her business relationship with Olivia Newton John and Koala Blue.
