A decade before she graces the top spot of the American singles chart, future pop star Kimbra Johnson is an effervescent 11 year old girl-next-door investigating the mechanics of making a hit recording in a series of segments for this TVNZ kids show. After consulting music industry experts (including Anika Moa and Francesca Rudkin) and receiving some vocal tuition, she's ready to record her song 'Smile'. The venue is Rikki Morris' studio where an arrangement is ready for her and she lays down one of the first of what will be many vocals to come.
