AT AGE 23 she is out-tweeted by her grandfather, former prime minister Malcolm Fraser, but that does not worry the woman who last night entertained a Canberra crowd with her voice.

Unlike her 83-year-old grandfather who has 26,000 Twitter followers, the former waitress does not even have a Twitter account.

''He's very supportive [of my music], he came to my recital last year,'' she said.

The Sydney woman joined the The Song Company several weeks ago. The group, which has six singers, is now in its 30th year and at the moment is singing works made famous by Jacques Brel, Cole Porter, Bon Iver and Pink.

Canberrans who missed The Song Company's performance can see Fraser perform with another group, Voci Stupende, later this month. She established the group, made up of performers from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, last year and decided to take it on a tour after successful performances in her home town of Armidale.
