Lowood duo joins Oprah's audience

FOR close to half their lives, Dale Kendrick and Sherrie Morris have loyally watched talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey.

On Tuesday, they were among the thousands of lucky fans who packed the Sydney Opera House for the taping of Oprah’s Ultimate Australian Adventure show.

Mrs Kendrick said it had been surreal being in a live audience.

“She has inspired people and I think we have all learnt lessons from watching Oprah,” Mrs Kendrick said.

“It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity being there and I am so happy we were.”

She said highlights had been seeing interviews with Aussie celebrities Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman and Olivia Newton-John.

The Lowood resident said they had also watched on anxiously as Hugh Jackman injured his eye sliding from the top of the Sydney Opera House to the stage almost 100 metres below.

Mrs Morris, who missed out on seeing her idol in Chicago on a holiday only to score tickets to the show courtesy of her friend when she arrived back home, said it had been “amazing” to watch Oprah live.

“She was just so down to earth and very nice,” she said.

But they walked away with more than just memories, the women among the audience members gifted with a diamond necklace.
