Congratulations to Rangi Parker who is to be presented with the NZ Music Commission sponsored Māori Music Industry Award at the Waiata Maori Music Awards
Rangi was from Porirua and had previously been in the Gaynotes and the Shevelles before going solo. She released her first single for HMV in 1972. It was Everyday Is Sunday / Turn Around And Love Me.
The single received considerable airplay and Everyday Is Sunday made it to the finals of the 1972 Loxene Gold Disc Awards. Her only other single, also for HMV, was He's Not There / Give Your Love To Me in 1973.
