Meet our Celebrity Judges

Greetings StarJam Blog Readers

Temuera Morrison, Ben Lummis & Ray Woolf will be joining us to judge all your fantastic Videos! So, lets learn a little more about them.

Temuera Morrison
Temuera Morrison
Temuera Morrison is best known perhaps for his role on Shortland Street (Well in my books anyhow) But we have seen him on the silver screen in many different roles, including Star Wars, Once were warriors and River Queen.

Ben Lummis

Ben Lumis
Ben Lummis has been a massive supporter of StarJam since 1998 and has sung with and mentored many of our aspiring singers. He shot to fame as the first ever winner of NZ Idol we just love him here.

Ray Woolf
 


Ray Woolf has been with us from the get-go. He kindly accepted our invitation to perform at the StarJam launch in November 2002 and we have been lucky enough to have him around ever since. Ray is one of our show business icons with almost 50 years of performing under his belt. It has been great to have this household name on our programme and in 2007 we were proud to offer him a Jambassadorship. Because Ray has been around since the beginning he has seen many of our original jammers grow up and blossom. Ray says he gets quite a kick out of performing with the jammers and guess what Ray? They get a kick out of performing with you too!!

We have lots of prizes up for grabs just take a peek! Seriously, who is going to be able to resist this great prize? Return tickets for two to Los Angeles flying Air New Zealand premium economy and visit to the set of Criminal Minds for the team that raises the most money via online fundraising.

Money4Jam – Busking Challenge WIN WIN WIN!


Greetings StarJam Blog Readers

I’m writing to tell you that www.money4jam.org is now live. Have a look, I think you’ll agree it is very cool.

Money for Jam is the fund raising initiative of the charity organisation StarJam. StarJam offers performance programmes for kids with disabilities in New Zealand so they can gain respect, confidence, empowerment, new friends, new hope and new purpose within a fun and inclusive atmosphere. Demand for these places now outstrips our resources. Our aim is to sign up 100 teams to go busking on the street (21st October 2010) and gather online donations now to raise $100,000 so we can create more spaces for kids with disabilities in more places around New Zealand.

If you know someone who would be up for this kind of fun I would really love you to ask them to enter a team. They (or you) can also upload a video of the busking and really get ahead of the game.

There is already quite a buzz around this and people are starting to support the buskers already signed up. If you want to join in the buzz with a donation for a team you can click here.

There are heaps of cool prizes including two return premium economy tickets to LA – kindly donated by Air New Zealand – with a visit to the Hollywood set of Criminal Mind, for the team that raises the most money. Click here for a full list of prizes.

I really can’t think of a more deserving reason to pull out the camera, dust off the guitar and sing to your heart’s content!

Thanks so much for your time.

Best wishes
