New Zealand's Got Talent (NZGT) winner Clara van Wel has today released a single of her winning song, the self-penned Where Do You Find Love.

"The recording session was just the most amazing experience," the 15-year-old Blenheim school girl said. "It was really great to finally get something down, to prepare something for New Zealand to listen to."

For the future she said she planned to stay grateful and humble and make sure that she was always respectful to the people in the industry.

Van Wel wowed the talent show's judges and won the hearts and votes of the New Zealand public with her accomplished original compositions and poignant performances.

For winning NZGT, the she received a cash prize of $100,000, a recording contract and a new car.

A prolific songwriter with close to 50 tracks already penned, van Wel has been singing and playing guitar from a young age.  Prior to entering New Zealand's Got Talent, she had won the Marlborough Smokefree Rockquest for two consecutive years in 2011 and 2012.

Van Wel will return to the studio to record a full length album early next year, which is scheduled for release in February.
