This is no silly fairy, she’s got her head and wings on straight. She’s won the APRA award for the best 'Children’s Music Video' for her song ‘Aotearoa, Home of our Hearts’ in 2016 and recently launched her first CD. We listened to her songs on repeat during our camping trip to the Catlins and I loved hearing my girls singing the words and laughing along. The girls enjoyed singing “let’s go on a bush walk” as we explored the local bush walks of the south eastern coast of New Zealand. I even got corrected on some of the lyrics when I tried to sing along.
The true mark of the CD's success, however, was measured by the screams and cries that erupted when their grandfather asked if we could please turn off the music in the car. To be fair, Pap pap is not the target market for the songs and so, of course, his taste in music is different from my girls. However, with the protest in full force he was quick to ask the music be turned back on and allow peace to reign again.
Personally, I like the music. I sing and dance along with my girls because I know that by buying a Rainbow Rosalind CD, I'm supporting local talent, a local mum, a community member and in the eyes of my girls, a superstar hero. Thanks Rainbow Rosalind, we’re lucky to have you.

In a word - no. My blog space is not for sale. When I meet someone doing something awesome I sometimes offer to write a blog about their business because it makes my heart sing to do so. I truly 100% believe in who they are and what they're doing.
