Rick Price - Heaven Knows

Song Info:

In March 1992 the second single Heaven Knows was released in Australia. It was another top 10 hit going gold and marking Price as a singer with a truly remarkable voice. The song would go on to launch his international career. In May Price was asked to join the "Wizard of Oz" show-case in Los Angeles where he performed alongside Tina Arena amongst many other of the country's leading artists. In June, his debut album "Heaven Knows" entered the charts at number 3 and stayed in the top 100 for most of the remainder of the year.

In August 1992 Heaven Knows was released in Germany, Italy, Norway, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Greece, Holland, Israel, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Portugal and Finland; in most of these countries the album charted. In September he toured Australia. The tour was a success with comments like "His voice was clear and as strong as on the album - in fact the sound was near perfect" - West Australian and "Rick's performance showed what a talented performer he is and that his name will be around for a long time". - Beat

Following the tour was a month long promotional trip to Europe and the UK which involved over 100 interviews and 20 TV appearances. In October he was invited back to Europe for further TV appearances and then a 3 week promotional trip to South East Asia.

In November 1992 Price returned to Australia where he won the prestigious Song of the Year Award for "Heaven Knows" at the APRA (Australian Performing Rights Association) Awards. This award recognised Rick's songwriting abilities.

In December 1992 Price was invited to Germany to perform on their biggest variety show there. He then made a 36 hour stopover in Manila where he managed six TV appearances, two radio interviews and a handful of press.

"Heaven Knows" held the top spot in Malaysia for four consecutive weeks while "Not A Day Goes By" sat just behind it in the Top 5. In The Philippines, "Heaven Knows" sat at number 1 for all of November and December. During this time the album sold over 250,000 units alone in South-East Asia. "It was an exhausting experience" says Price, "but it was stimulating at the same time. It was all new to me, going to places I'd never been and doing stuff I'd never done, so I certainly didn't get tired of it."
