Anika Moa has won two national awards for her beautifully crafted children's music.

The winners in the New Zealand Children's Music Awards were announced live on What Now yesterday by Jason Kerrison, a first for the show.

With her album Songs For Bubbas, Moa won a New Zealand Music Awards Tui for Best Children's Music Album and also won Best Children's Music Song of the Year for her song Colours are Beautiful.

Aimee Herd's video for Dragons Under My Bed, written and performed by Kath Bee, won the Best Children's Music Video category.

Damian Vaughan, CEO of Recorded Music New Zealand, said Moa's album was "brilliant''.

''Kids all over New Zealand should get to hear this, it really is brilliant - and not just for bubbas,'' he said.
