Per­former re­turns to NZ

South Waikato News - - BUSINESS HOTLINE -

Award-win­ning Cana­dian singer-song writer Dan Bremnes will be per­form­ing a free con­cert in Pu­taruru as part of his Follow the Sun tour.

Bremnes has wowed au­di­ences world­wide. In 2013 he was cho­sen as a grand prize win­ner of an in­ter­na­tional singing com­pe­ti­tion which fea­tured fi­nal­ists from all over the world. In the same year, he also won two awards for Male Vo­cal­ist of the Year and Mu­sic Video of the Year at the 35th an­nual Covenant Awards in Canada.

In 2010 he re­leased his first full-length al­bum Your Strength which re­ceived wide ra­dio play in Canada and Aus­tralia.

In ad­di­tion to his mu­sic, Bremnes will also share his ex­pe­ri­ences from his re­cent trip to Do­mini­can Repub­lic (one of the top 10 most dan­ger­ous places in the world) where he was able to meet his spon­sor child, Wan­der, and gave him a gui­tar.

Tour­ing with Bremnes is the award-win­ning Kiwi singer-song writer Stra­han Cole­man.

In 2014 Cole­man’s de­but al­bum Posters re­ceived the Gospel Al­bum of the Year award at the New Zealand Mu­sic Awards.

TEAR Fund events man­ager Gavin McCul­loch said he is thrilled to bring Bremnes to New Zealand.

‘‘I’m look­ing for­ward to hav­ing Dan back in New Zealand and get­ting the op­por­tu­nity of him tour­ing along­side Stra­han.

‘‘Both are such tal­ented artists and gifted story tellers and their heart for the poor con­tin­ues to in­spire me.

‘‘This will be an ex­cit­ing sum­mer event that will be both en­ter­tain­ing and in­spir­ing.’’

Both artists will hit the stage this Satur­day at 7pm at the Liv­ing Springs Christian Cen­tre on 59 Ti­rau St, Pu­taruru.

En­try is free but do­na­tions are wel­come.
