Ginny Blackmore Hits #1 On NZ Top 40 Singles

Ginny Blackmore

Hits #1 On NZ Top 40 Singles Chart with Debut Single ‘Bones’!!

Unless you have been hiding under a rock this past week, it has been hard to miss the incredible buzz that is building around rising kiwi superstar artist GINNY BLACKMORE and her debut single ‘BONES’ that has just hit the #1 spot on the NZ Top 40 Singles Chart this afternoon.

‘Bones’ written in a painful moment of her love life, drastically altered Blackmore’s journey, transforming a 27- year old struggling singer and songwriter from Auckland, into one of New Zealand’s most captivating pop newcomers.

Now based in Los Angeles, Ginny has spent the past week back home in Auckland to share her incredible talent with a live performance of ‘Bones’ on X Factor on Monday night and a showcase event for media, friends and family on Wednesday.

For an accomplished artist, the #1 position is a huge achievement - but for a debut single from a brand new artist, it is nothing short of an exceptional result. Of the #1 result, Ginny says “It couldn’t be more perfect that my first #1 single is in New Zealand. It is my first time home in 18 months, so this is the most epic homecoming ever!! Thank you New Zealand for the love and support!!”

From New Zealand to London, and now London to Los Angeles, Ginny is finally where she wants to be: in the studio recording her debut album, due for release later in 2013.

BONES IS AVAILABLE ON ITUNES NOW
