Award-winning country recording artist Kellie Pickler has lent her big voice and personality to a multitude of projects over the years, including joining VeggieTales:Beauty And The Beet as Maribelle the Sweet Potato, portraying Abigail Farland in the animated CMT series “Bounty Hunter,” and most recently on the set of her CMT reality series “I Love Kellie Pickler.” Today, Pickler announced her latest collaboration as her new character, Zora the genie pirate, is introduced on Nickelodeon’s “Shimmer and Shine” this Friday, March 3. The animated children’s series was introduced to Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr. in 2015, and follows the magical adventures of fraternal twin genies, Shimmer and Shine, who unintentionally create chaos while attempting to grant wishes for their human best friend, Leah. Pickler sings two new original songs in the series as Zora. Catch the exclusive clip of Pickler’s portrayal as Zora from People.com.
“I’m so excited for everyone to be introduced to Zora the genie pirate on ‘Shimmer & Shine.’ She loves a big adventure, is oh-so fearless and a bit of a spitfire!” shares Pickler, who told People.com last summer that being the voice of Zora is her most impressive accomplishment according to her young niece. “I loved being the voice for her…I hope Zora gets to go on many more adventures with her friends.”
Pickler and Zora debut on Nickelodeon this Friday, March 3, at 11 a.m. ET/10 a.m. CT. For more information, follow Nickelodeon on Instagram: @nickjr and @nickelodeon as well as facebook: facebook.com/nickjr and Twitter: @nickjr.
