In 1986 she was voted the New Zealand Entertainer of the Year. Suzanne tours internationally and has worked extensively in television, theatre and cabaret for 40 years. In 2008, she received the NZCMA Country Music Legend Award.
In 2012, Suzanne released her first studio album in 17 years, which went to number one on the New Zealand Music charts within days.
2013 saw her latest album ‘The Very Best of Suzanne Prentice - 1973-2013’ released, celebrating 40 years of a truly international career. Within weeks, once again for Suzanne, this album went into the NZ music charts and attained gold status.
