We’re thrilled that celebrity TV presenter Miriama Kamo will compère The Big Sing Finale this year in the Christchurch Town Hall. Miriama has a distinguished career as a broadcast journalist and is well-known as the presenter for current affairs programmes Sunday and Marae on TVNZ 1.
Miriama is a board member for the Arts Foundation and is the Patron/Te Koruru of the New Zealander of the Year Awards. She also sits on the board of Kotahi Rau Pukapuka, which is translating 100 books into te reo. A writer herself, Miriama published her first children’s book in 2018, and has two more ‘in the works’. A loyal Cantabrian and mother, she is also an ambassador for Endometriosis NZ and Pillars, a children’s charity supporting positive futures for children of prisoners.
Miriama says: “I’m thrilled to be the MC for this event where so many amazing young singers will be hosted again in my hometown of Christchurch. It’s a wonderful celebration of youth and music.”
