The ‘wisdom born of pain’ in Amber Lawrence’s Helen Reddy cover
Four-time Golden Guitar winner Amber Lawrence is bringing the late Helen Reddy’s iconic anthem I Am Woman to a new generation of young women.
She told Deborah Knight how the lines ‘I am wise, but it’s wisdom born of pain’ have a special resonance in her own life, after losing her son Edward during pregnancy.
“So many women relate to those lines.”

Amber performs as a duo with Catherine Britt, and told Deborah Knight it was actually Catherine’s “music purist” dad who prompted the pair to record the cover.
“He sat in the audience and he said ‘Girls, you’ve got to sing that song – I saw the effect on the crowd when you sang it’.”
