NZ Children's Music Awards 2014 Finalists Announced

Media Release – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 25 June 2014

NZ CHILDREN’S MUSIC AWARDS 2014 FINALISTS ANNOUNCED

Celebrating Music written for Kiwi Children

The Children’s Music Awards celebrate the storytellers, the rhymers, the singers and groovers who write and perform the songs that ignite a love for music in New Zealand children. Music universally brings a magical joy to the senses and plays an especially pivotal role in our children’s lives, spinning their stories and swaying their souls.

The Children’s Music Awards for song, video and album are rapidly garnering public interest, with entries from some of our children’s favourites alongside artists better known on mainstream radiowaves.

APRA’s Anthony Healey says “I love the Children’s Awards, they’re the most fun category and this year it’s so diverse - we have kids’ storybook heroes up against real life pop stars. It’s all great music that lights up little faces and gets toes tapping, little and big.”

APRA and Recorded Music NZ can now announce the finalists for the 2014 Children’s Music Awards in three categories – Song, Video and Album.

APRA Children’s Song of the Year

For the first time the awards will be presented by Jason Kerrison live on TV2’s What Now on Sunday 20th July from 8am.
