Its Not So Bad

Two weeks ago while I was on twitter I came across a tweet asking for a singer to perform at a matric ball. I found out more about it and as it turns out, it was a ball for the Athlone School for the Blind and Disabled. Their very first matric ball. The person organising this, read about it on freecycle,org; Wanted: Matric Ball for Blind and Disable Learners. She immediately sprung into action. Withing 12 hours she was getting donations and food sponsours.

This awesome person is @heikebru and I didn’t know anything about her, but I wanted to get involved. So last week on Friday (28 August) I performed at the matric ball and had an awesome time. At the end of the night I was so moved by the work of one woman who decided to respond to a post. As soon as she made the decision to help, she attracted people who also wanted to make a difference. Most times I read about how awful things are in South Africa, but people like Heike (and everyone who came on board) make me think that its not all so bad. I fell asleep with a smile on my face thinking about how happy those grd 12 learners were.

The theme was ‘A Night at the Oscars’. I thought I had better get dressed up, so I put on my Lazuli dress and pretended I was really going to the Oscars ;)

When you feel like its all falling apart, make a difference and you’ll see that its not so bad after all.

Hot Pink at Boom fm

Yesterday I debuted my new single (Hot Pink) at Boom fm HQ. It was part of their ‘On the deck’ series. We started off with an interview; we discussed why I chose to go the D.I.Y way and what some of the pros and cons are. I also performed acoustic version of Butterflies and Today is the Day.

I LOVE performing and what made this performance so awesome is that it was on the roof top/deck thing (yes, I’m very bright). With the backdrop of table mountain and red wine (thanks Ruth) I was in heaven. It was so awesome to hang out with the Boom fm crew :)

mic check 1… 2… Is this thing on?

Posed in front of the poster to prove that I was actually there :)
With Jacques, Ruth and Stefan

Good times :)
