A decade before joining Goyte at the top spot of the American singles chart, future pop star Kimbra Lee Johnson was an effervescent 11 year old girl investigating the mechanics of making a hit recording, in a series of segments for TVNZ kids show What Now?. After meeting up with producers Rikki Morris and Stephen Small, she's ready to record her song 'Smile'. The venue is Morris' Devonport studio, where the duo have an arrangement all ready so that Kimbra can lay down her vocal.
