And of course last night she swept up the award for International Achievement at the VNZMAs!

I was honoured to receive the International Achievement Award at the NZ Music Awards in Auckland tonight. I have been a part of the NZ music community as ‘Brooke Fraser’ for 16 years since my first album ‘What to Do With Daylight’ back in 2003 (and my next collection “B-Sides” comes out tomorrow - surprise). But for the first time tonight in this room I know so well there was recognition of what I’ve also had the *enormous* privilege of doing for the past 13 of those 16 years at the same time - building and serving my/the church through song @hillsong. I have never needed people to understand that it wasn’t either-or, it was both. I’ve just put my head down and gotten on with following the Lord, whatever that looked like. My priority has not been to PR my obedience. My priority has just been to obey. I will go to sleep tonight with great hope for this amazing, diverse, vibrant community of artists in NZ and with deep gratitude for this very special nation I’m from. God bless New Zealand! Now to sleep for three hours and hop on a plane back to @hillsongwcc for the morning! ?
