Stan Walker added to an impressive record of success when he collaborated with Ginny Blackmore for 2014 duet ‘Holding You’. The power ballad became the second Kiwi chart-topper for both artists, following Walker's 2009 debut ‘Black Box’, and Blackmore’s widely played ‘Bones’. Both artists had already made a mark overseas: Melbourne-born, NZ-raised Walker signed with Sony Music Australia after winning Australian Idol in 2009; Blackmore had signed a publishing deal while living in London.
