Day 16 of the tune a day challenge for New Zealand Music Month.

In 1969 John Rowles was invited to represent New Zealand at the Rio de Jenero music festival, he wrote a song specially for it, inspired by his sister. Cheryl Moana Marie became a top 50 hit in the USA, was number one in New Zealand and Australia and was chosen for a UNESCO song book.

It had a revival here last year when Rowles sang it in a cameo appearance in Second Hand Wedding.
