    LATEST: Stan Walker was the star power behind the project launch of the anti-violence campaign 'E Tu! Stand up against abuse' at Owae Marae today.

    Walker was welcomed on to the Marae and delivered a fluent mihi, despite claiming to be a ''little bit rusty'' in Maori.

    Project manager Bry Kopu said there were three main messages for children to take from the project: violence in families or the community is not ok, it is ok to ask for help, and there were people who cared.

    New Plymouth Mayor Harry Duynhoven also spoke about the importance of the project, and the strength of the Waitara community in confronting its issues.

    That strength was shown through four local Waitara school children, who all overcame nerves to sing Stan Walker songs onstage.

    Walker himself then took the microphone - belting out one hit before jumping offstage, and creating a circle of people for a dance off.

    Hundreds of children gathered around the star, before he lined some local hopefuls up onstage for ''Waitara Idol''.

    Walker said he was humbled and privileged to be welcomed into the Waitara community and speak out against abuse.

    I'm on the STAN wagon.
