Ngaire Fuata topped the Kiwi charts for five weeks in 1990 with her confident take on 60s classic 'To Sir with Love'. Album Ngaire, released in 1991, included further singles 'So Divine' and Ardijah remake 'When the Feeling is Gone’. Ngaire had already begun in television before her brush with pop fame; she went on to work behind the scenes on a number of screen projects, including many years on Pacific Island news show Tagata Pasifika. Raised in Whakatane by Dutch and Rotuman parents, she travelled to her father’s tiny Pacific island for 2011 documentary Salat se Rotuma – Passage to Rotuma.
