I heard in an interview recently by Kimbra that it was in the script of the What Now programme ' one day I would love to be a pop star..'. -that it was not in fact her personal ambition! She did want to play music but where that would take her could never have been imagined at that stage.Anyway I watch and listen with delight at her musical exploration & progress.Thanks NZ on Screen for sharing this and I hope that you somehow un/recover the rest of this series that she presented all those years ago.

lolson writes:"From wannabe pop star to giant pretend hipster. See ya thin!"lolson, ALL hipsters are "pretend". It's just what a person decides to be, that's all. All the people you think are hip, well....they weren't born that way. :)So, she ended up being the pop star she wanted to be and now she's exploring beyond that...good for her. She's amazingly talented and a fine person indeed.

After seeing her perform all grown up on the ARIAs last night, this is a delightful flashback to the girl who already knew the young woman she would become. Go Kiwi, go.

"And it sounds so flash". She is so brilliant, even as a kid. Definitely one of my favourite artists.

She already knew what she wanted to do! And she kept working hard to get where she is!! Such an inspiration xx

Wow! How amazingly talented Kimbra was at 11 years old. She had an awesome voice with a beautiful tone for such a young girl! I love Kimbra! and she deserves all the success she has achieved and more!

how big is she now??!!! and she keeps getting bigger everyday... how else can you explain that someone like me (someone from honduras, central america) got to listen her music a few months ago and cant stop replaying her album over and over again.She's so talented and hopefully someday she'll conquer the music industry worldwide

God, I remember watching this at the time on What Now?. She did a Atomic Kitten 'Whole Again' style music vid where she was filmed at double speed in some sort of dressing room with various costumes: "I'm doing this at double speed so I need to speed up my movements". NO. THE MOVEMENTS ARE MEANT TO BE SLOW. Still, she was only 11!

Kept replaying 3:12 because she's so cheesy and full of energy "Well we didn't get to see the finished product BUT IT SOUNDED REALLY COOL AY???!" 8-D. Awesome video though, she'd probably cringe at watching it.

good on her, she's great!

From wannabe pop star to giant pretend hipster. See ya thin!

A reminder that overnight sensations take years to make. What a fabulous talent.

Take a look at her progress the next year when she was 12. This film excerpt of workshops that were part of the NZ Music Commission musician mentoring programme , at Berkley Middle school 2002- and the kids here are playing the instruments, not adults... http://nzmusic.org.nz/resources/education/kimbra-berkley-middle-school/

To all those inquiring about the rest of the series: alas this appears to be the only clip from the series that survives in TVNZ's archive, so unless someone has recorded it at the time, the complete series is lost ... if you do have copies of the other clips in the series, please get in touch!: email@example.com
Posted at 01.59PM - 15.06.2012
I wonder what Kimbra will thinks if she gets to look back at this clip of her young self. Kimbra, are you out there looking at this?
Posted at 12.37PM - 15.06.2012
