As a child, I always took part in drama, choir, revue, piano lessons, modern dancing and any form of the arts and I loved it!
In 2006 I did an audition for the popular music game show “Noot vir Noot”. 3500 People auditioned. I took second place that season and that really was the start of a whole new life and beginning for me. I had a dream inside of me that was just bursting to break out. I was quite a nerve wrecking. Never before had I written songs and my knowledge of the music industry was limited, all I knew was that I loved to sing and I wanted my own album.
The songs I’ve written, “Slaggat van my hart” en “Vorentoe” helped me to release all my emotional, mental and physical stress of a failed marriage. My first album is all about sharing my deep emotions and really connecting with listeners, “food for thought” songs and “feel good” songs. I’m proud to say that my first album has been play listed on Radio Pretoria, Kragbron, VCR, Platorand and Lichtenburg.
I love performing and have been invited to open shows for music legends like: Lance James, Barbara Ray, Dozi and Clive Bruce. I had such a great time and the experience was an absolute privilege. I perform as often as possible and the beauty of the business is that I’m always learning something new. Never a dull moment!
All the tracks on my album are original songs which I have carefully selected from local songwriters, Claudia Cox and Ina Holt. The songs really compliment each other and I am very happy with the outcome of the album. The recording was blood, sweat and tears, but I had a lot of fun!
“Personally I have a wide range of music genres that I can perform, I enjoy a challenge as life is a challenge itself.” My advice for anybody out there with a dream is: “If you set a goal, live to fulfill it and give it your all”.
