Karin Kortje presents her Night with the Stars concert at GrandWest’s Grand Arena on Friday September 15.
The winner of the Overberg’s Got Talent competition, which ran until the end of August in schools in Grabouw, Villiersdorp, Caledon and Hawston, and which was conceptualised by Kortje, will be given the opportunity to perform at the GrandWest show.
“My heart fills up with pride when I see all the talent that exists in South Africa. We have had so many children from the Overberg region enter this competition, with no formal musical training or vocal lessons, and when they audition, they exude so much talent – which reminds my why it’s necessary to give back to my community.
“My aim is to give them a platform to share their talent with other top local stars and learn from these musicians to forge their own musical career,” says Kortje, who won Idols in 2005.
Joining Kortje on stage will be The Voice SA winner, Craig Lucas; former Idols 12 top-4 contestant Terra Cox; The Voice season one contestant Robin Pieters; diva Salome Damon Johansen; former N2 band member-turned-solo artist, Carmen Exclusive; fellow Idols contestant Rhema Verrie as well as former Idols runner-up and R&B crooner Thami Shodebe. Camillo Lombard is the musical director for this production while Basil Appollis will produce and direct the show.
Tickets are between R150 and R200. Book through Computicket.
