LOS ANGELES, USA (AP) — Helen Reddy failed to take her own advice for the last few years — she did not Keep on Singing, to quote the title of her 1974 hit.
Ten years ago, the I Am Woman singer-songwriter gave up on show business and started a whole new life in her homeland of Australia. She got her degree in clinical hypnotherapy, and for the last decade has lived modestly in Sydney.
"I have very wide-ranging interests," she said in a recent interview. "So, singing Leave Me Alone 43 times per song lost its charm a long time ago."
