The story of Susan Rose is one of extreme highs and lows.

A professional entertainer since the age of 18 when she was discovered in a karaoke contest, Susan Rose toured the world with her voice. Performing over 1500 shows in such far fetched lands as Dubai, Uganda and for two years at venues throughout the United Kingdom, her exotic Maori looks and smokey vocal tones wowed audiences.

Beneath the public on stage façade however lay a personal life that was equal parts tragedy as it was triumphant. The writing and recording of her debut album 'This is my story' finally gave her a chance to deal with difficult issues previously swept under the carpet such as her adoption 'Whangai' as a baby, being witness to her father's murder in a gang related shooting as an 8 year old, and the turmoil of broken relationships as well as celebrating the positives in her life such as motherhood, her love of her Maori heritage and culture, and her new found self confidence following her success in Maori Television's popular TV show Homai Te Pakipaki.

Nei Ko Au - This is her story.
