Laurel Edwards celebrates her 50th with a surprise Countdown Party
Troy Cassar Daley surprised his wife 4KQ’s Laurel Edwards with a Countdown Party to celebrate her 50th Birthday. Special guests included WSFM’s Jonesy and Abi Benaud (Kyle and Jackie O producer who worked with Laurel at 4KQ), 97.3’s Bob Gallagher, her 4KQ Breaky teammates Mark Hine and Gary Clare CD Barry Drinkwater, but the guest that completely blew her away was the man she has stalked and idolised since she was 7, Daryl Braithwaite. See the video.
Troy had organised a very special performance by Daryl, and Laurel – never one to miss an opportunity jumped on the stage to sing along while he performed “Horses” and “Rise.”
“I’m still floating on a cloud thanks to my amazing husband who surprised me with not only the perfect ‘Countdown’ party but a performance by the man I have stalked and idolised since I was 7, Daryl Braithwaite!”, said Laurel.
“As a young girl I would sit in my satin Sherbet jacket Mum made me and stare at their album cover while playing the turntable. I would fantasise Daryl would walk up the front stairs and knock on the door.
“Even through an unbelievably busy 12 months for Troy and (Troy’s Manager) Roxanne Brown, they still worked tirelessly to throw the perfect 50th… It was a night I will never forget.”
