Rainbow Rosalind the Fairy, also known as children’s singer/songwriter and entertainer Rosalind Manowitz, has received an international award.
"I am still in shock," she said in a recent social media post, after winning the Global Children’s Artist of the Decade award from an Australian children’s radio station.
She thanked people for supporting her, and Funky Kids Radio, of Emerald, near Melbourne, for the award, which was a "really amazing thing for my career".
She also won the New Zealand Artist of the Decade award from the station.
Ms Manowitz comes from a classical music background, playing the viola and flute with orchestras and groups such as the NZSO National Youth Orchestra, the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Strings of Melbourne.
A presenter of Dunedin preschool television show Code Fun, she found her passion for writing songs for children while studying musical theatre overseas.
Her earlier successes include the APRA Best Children’s Music Video Award 2016 for her original music video Aotearoa, Home of our Hearts, and the release of Kia Ora, her debut album of original children’s songs.
