My journey in music started when I was just a little girl, sitting on my mom’s lap while she played the organ, singing along in church choirs whilst my dad conducted, or maybe it began even before that when my mom set aside certain times to play the organ especially for me while still in her tummy, because as you know, unborn babies can hear! All I know is that music is an essential part of my being without which I cannot live.
Two years ago, after a long period of silence, I decided that the time is right for me to pursue my dream of sharing my music with the world. As any artist’s journey goes, I also started at the bottom, mostly with performances at open mic nights and charity event such as Cansa Relay for Life. Long story short – we all have to start somewhere.
I decided early on that I will make 100% sure that I do a range of charity performances every year as this is where I started my musical career (Cansay Relay For Life 2012 in Nelspruit) and I need to stay the same person that made this decision. Being with people that are close to Him and always humble helps me to keep my feet grounded and to stay true to who I am.
In the past two years I have reached heights in my music career that I never thought was even possible. Performing at KKNK 2014 was absolutely amazing but nerve wrecking and being able to perform at Innibos 2014 is going to be a dream come true. Over the next few weeks I will also be performing at various Old Age Homes & children’s homes across Nelspruit (charity performances) and I am so thankful to be able to assist my community. I might not be able to assist with clothes or food or even shelter, but I can” take them away” from their current situation for just an hour.
I have no idea how my journey forward will be, all I know is that with Him by my side all is possible.
