Brooke Gabrielle Fraser Ligertwood (born December 15, 1983 in Wellington, New Zealand) is a Tui Award winning New Zealand singer-songwriter, World Vision ambassador and one of the principal worship leaders of Christian worship band Hillsong United. Her debut album What to Do with Daylight was released in New Zealand in 2003 and has since been certified 7x platinum. Her second studio album, Albertine, was released in 2006 and has been certified 5x platinum and reached #3 on the U.S. Top Christian Albums chart. Her third studio album, Flags, will be released October 12.

She studied piano from the age of seven, began writing songs at 12, played clarinet very averagely from 13, and at 15 got sick of writing slow piano ballads and playing “Baby Elephant Walk” in the school concert band, so taught herself the acoustic guitar. She still has quiet aspirations of being a drummer in a hardcore band or a forensic anthropologist, or a really great knitter, but these remain pipe dreams for now.

Brooke was coerced into playing in public during her first year in high school, when the dean of the senior year wanted an assembly ‘item’ and one of Brooke’s so-called ‘friends’ dobbed her in. This led to a semi-humiliating but character building bi. weekly ‘gig’ at the senior assembly. Over the next few years as her songs stopped being about insects, her ‘gigs’ became music festivals, support shows and fundraisers for a charity that she remains committed to and passionate about today - World Vision. « hide
