New Zealand's Got Talent winner Clara van Wel will play in Nelson next month after she was announced as a special guest on the 7th Annual Classic Hits Winery Tour.
Van Wel joins the existing line up of Fat Freddy's Drop, Anika, Boh & Hollie and The Adults (featuring Jon Toogood and Julia Deans) on the 17-date tour that performs in Neudorf Vineyards on February 22 and 23.
It’s been a whirlwind few months for the 15-year-old student from Blenheim after she wowed the show’s judges and won the hearts and votes of the New Zealand public with her original compositions and poignant performances.
In December she released her debut single ‘Where Do You Find Love’, which debuted at number three on the New Zealand Singles Chart and certified Gold. She is now recording her debut album, which will be released in March.
Co-promoter Campbell Smith said it was rare to add an extra artist to the bill, but Clara was ‘‘such a special talent’’
Van Wel said she was thrilled to have the opportunity to tour the country. "I'm super excited to be on my first proper tour and I can't wait to show New Zealand more of my music."
