Jackie Clarke and Nathan King present Kids for Kids!
We are thrilled to announce that we have two new faces fronting Kids for Kids. Each show will be fronted by either kiwi icon Jackie Clarke, or former Zed frontman Nathan King.
Jackie Clarkeʼs illustrious career has seen her on stage and screen, as well as performing with The Lady Killers (with Tina Cross, Suzanne Lynch and Annie Crummer), The Darlings, Jubilation Gospel Choir, When the Catʼs Been Spayed, and guesting with the NZSO, APO, Wellington Vector Orchestra, CSO, ACO, Dunedin Sinfonia, Dave Dobbyn, Annie Crummer, and more! Jackieʼs also a core artist of the iconic Coca Cola Christmas in the Park events and was a judge on New Zealand Idol.
Nathan King is a gifted and passionate songwriter. Only five years after strumming that first chord, Nathan found his songs and exceptional voice at the heart of multi-platinum, award-winning success as his band Zed saw their debut album shoot to number one. Nathan found himself honing his craft in front of thousands of fans in Australasia touring with Robbie Williams and Coldplay and in the US and Europe with the likes of The Calling, Ash and Seal. In 2001, he was nominated as Best Songwriter and won the Best Male Vocalist award at the New Zealand Music Awards. In 2005, Nathan released his first solo album and has recently been working on his new band ʻPaper Planeʼ.
