This year has so far been a whirlwind for Ben Lummis. At the beginning of 2004 he was a teacher's aide at Arohanui Special School, and in the space of just five months he has become one of New Zealand's most recognised celebrities.
In January he lined up with thousands of other hopefuls at the NZ Idol auditions, sang and danced his way into the judge's and the public's hearts. He was crowned New Zealand's first Idol on May 10th.
Ben Lummis first debuted in the Radioscope NZ Music Airplay Top 10 on 16 May 2004 with the song They Can't Take That Away. There are two entries by Ben Lummis in the charts with two reaching Number One.
