Wow, Nigel is awesome. Such a cutie!! And that voice! Geez, that was impressive. I also love how he was game to just start singing Italian opera right on the sidewalk with people watching. He definitely added something very special to this tour. I'm glad he went along for the ride. :clap:

I love the fact that he had to think of how to spell his own name. :lol: And he likes the story songs. They're my favorites too.

Here are a few YouTube clips of him.

These are clips of him singing karaoke. He's singing with Uni (of Uni and her ukulele) in the second clip.

Venus: Thank you for posting these vids. That was so fun to watch.

I graduated high school in 1978 & that song (Hold the Line by Toto) was so popular senior year of high school. Oh my goodness, my brain is being rattled. Was that really 30 years ago, yikees and ouch. ha!

Watching Nigel sing that song & dance, it is the ultimate! Then as if it couldnt get any better there was a twirl. Im so excited about it because it is so fun to watch. Cant imagine being lucky enough to sit and watch it, as it happened, mercy.

Uni is so amazing., I have to hear her tune twinkle twinkle every day. Been a fan for quite awhile, her voice is stellar not to mention the uke. Huge fan, yay.

Wow, Nigel's voice is gorgeous! I've only heard him harmonize with Jemaine on BDS so I knew he could sing but...wow. :D I hope he gets the attention he deserves as well!

Thanks for those, Venus. :)

Sounds like a couple other NZers we know and love :D
Man, all three of them are such good ambassadors for NZ. Seriously, they represent their country so well, it's only no wonder all of us have made it our mission to go there someday.

Found this little bio at the WIUO website (http://www.ukulele.co.nz/bios.html):

Nigel “Dark Horse” Collins

In a parallel multi-verse Nigel sings in a Mariachi band. With the voice of a fallen angel he serenades saucy sweet thangs by moonlight. He wins their hearts, he loves them all, Ahhhh Nigel.

But can he play? Cello, Spanish guitar, Honky-tonk Piana, Contra bassinette and Ukulele, oh yes this renaissance rapscallion can play.

Nigel cannot be tamed. He disappears for months at a time. Legend has it he journeys to places far and wide (like Edinburgh) performing plays that he sometimes even writes (how cool is that? VERY!). We would like to clone our swarthy thespian ‘cos we miss him when he’s away, so scientists and inventors please help.

Nigel’s mum says “he was always a sensitive boy”.
Nigel’s dad says “Oh…yip”.

Haha, thanks for posting that, Faith! That's a hilarious bio. I knew while reading it that it had to have been written by another WIUO member.

"In a parallel multi-verse Nigel sings in a Mariachi band. With the voice of a fallen angel he serenades saucy sweet thangs by moonlight. He wins their hearts, he loves them all, Ahhhh Nigel."

:lol: :roll2:

Well a Kiwi guy I dated many years ago was a total arse. Of the biggest kind. So no, not all of them :lol: (and yes I did meet him overseas so he was a cultural ambassador of sorts :wink: )

Happily, the internet is there, as always, to feed our addictions. Here's some nice new(?) pics I've stumbled upon...
