“Hi, I’m Kimbra. And one day I’d love to be a pop star.”
Yes, that’s the Kimbra Johnson, aged 11, reinforcing the power of positive thinking in a clip recently unearthed by NZ on Screen and posted to YouTube.
Aired on New Zealand kids TV show What Now, the video shows an uber-confident Kimbra (“I sing a lot – and I’ve written heaps of my own songs!”) in the studio, recording vocals for her first song ‘Smile’. It follows some recently uncovered footage of a Kimbra at 15, two years before she made the move to Melbourne (see below).
Kimbra’s debut album Vows last month debuted at #14 on the Billboard 200. It’s currently sitting at #95.
