On FotR soundtrack there is a singer called Mabel Faletolu. Who is she?

I have absolutly no idea, I thought maybe she was the singer at the end of The Bridge of Khazad-Dum when Gandalf falls, but I really don't know.

Nobody on IMDb seems to know either and I looked on Google but there was only a picture of her and somebody wrote she sang on LotR.

Help me please.

Thank You!!!!!

Yes, Shore mentions it on the commentary section of the Expanded Version...The Fall of Gandalf is sung by Mabel Faletolu, and the choir is the Maori-Samoan choir (complete with football players for the 'Ooh ooh ooh' in the track ).

I would have killed to be at the recording sessions for this one...


I found this on Google!! I can't believe you couldn't find it. Here's the link. Scroll down and you'll find exactly what I posted above:
