Determined: Renee Geyer says she’s going to be OK and will get back to Perth.

“Renée lived her life as she performed — on her own terms and to the fullest. Beloved and respected, she was a force of nature and a national treasure, and her passing leaves a giant void in the Australian music industry,” her family said.

“Just last month, Renée sang to a full house and was looking forward to another busy year ahead doing what she loved most — performing for her loyal fans around the country.”

Our sincere condolences to her family, friends, and two generations of loving fans, our love to all.
