Oh yeeeaahhhh….LA Music Awards and Billboard Top-40 you have rocked my world this month!!!!!! It was an amazing time as I …the first New Zealander ever…went to experience what many famous artists experience …the LA Music Awards Red Carpet!!!! Nominated for International Artist of the Year as well as Video of the Year was truly a humbling honor for this small town Kiwi girl! Happy to now announce I won the 2011 LA Music Award Video of the Year…whoo hooo!!!! Tons of media there, photos and interviews (i’ll be posting ‘em over the next few days) … I guess my single “Complicated” breaking into the Top-40 in the US didn’t hurt my chances ! hahahaha “
Continuing on to the East coast I did an assortment of shows …including The Ritz, Taj, The Duplex, Therapy, and Splash…opening for Grammy Award winner “Mya” (Getto Super Star and Lady Marmalade). It’s always so much fun being in NYC … and this time I got to see the Empire State building which was awesome!!!
Also touring with me was Suniula Daniels from Austraila’s Musicheads www.musicheads.com and my good friend Paulene Salvau-Tanielu from N.Z.…you guys make me laugh and having a little of NZ with me meant so much on this trip!! Thank you to all those who have championed me and stood by my side, believing in what I do as a singer…my heart is full of thanks to you and to the King of Kings for the love and encouragement I feel…I am grateful on this Thanksgiving Day!!
All my love,
