The First Great Big Radio Star for 2015 - Naia Gray-Clarke
The wonderful folk at Hutt Radio, in Naenae Wellington, opened their doors wide to welcome Trevor, Miller and I on the first weekend of February. We in turn opened the door even wider to welcome Naia Gray-Clarke and her family into the station.
Naia is only 9 years old but she was very comfortable and confident in front of the microphone. She also has a great sense of humour and we had a lot of fun together! :oD
The wonderful team at Hutt Radio made us feel very welcome! It was a wonderfully warm summer's day so toasty warm in the studio but Naia coped incredibly well and her beautiful smile never left her face :o) The funniest person in Naia's life is her older brother Ngarimu. When it came time to tell a joke on the show Naia tagged in Ngarimu for the job. Naia has a lovely voice and she enjoys singing but she also makes sure she shares the microphone and when it came time to sing a song she was joined by her older sister, Chelani. Whanau is very important to Naia. She is one of five children (she has two older and two younger brothers and sisters). They are all talented in their own ways and although Naia says they do have times when they fight (like every sibling does) they obviously care very much for each other.
