Kylie Minogue worked Australians into a patriotic fervour during her performance at a party in Los Angeles on Wednesday (08Jan14) to kick off the annual G'Day Usa celebrations.

The Spinning Around singer took to the stage at the Spirit Of Australia event to launch Qantas Airways' annual G'Day Usa week, an initiative designed to strengthen ties between America and Australia.

Minogue performed to a star-studded crowd which included fellow Australians, actresses Jacki Weaver and Jessica MCNamee, Qantas ambassador John Travolta and the cast of U.S. Tv series Modern Family, who are heading Down Under in February (14) to shoot a special holiday episode.

The singer treated fans to performances of classic hits including The Loco-Motion and Can't Get You Out Of My Head, but she drew the loudest cheers with a rendition of I Still Call Australia Home, the 1980 song written by Peter Allen about Australian expatriates.

Minogue told the crowd, "I always feel that song tug at my heartstrings. It does something to us, it's like an unofficial anthem."
