SOUTH AFRICA’S WHITNEY RETURNS HOME
After performing “The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show” to audiences in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and North America, the production is heading to Cape Town.
The show is set to return to Artscape Opera House this June for a four-week run. It stars the the breathtaking voice of Belinda Davids, accompanied by a seven-piece live band, dancers and theatrical effects.The show launched three years ago and has since caused hype across the continents.
How it happened:
Prompted into auditioning last-minute by a friend, the Port Elizabeth-born Davids, who now resides in Cape Town, was one of almost 15,000 singers who tried-out for the demanding role. Director John Van Grinsven knew immediately that she was the star he was looking for. “Belinda’s voice is astounding on its own, but when you hear her sing Whitney songs in full voice, and with such personal affection, it’s an ethereal experience,” says Van Grinsven. Bigger opportunities continue to come Davids’ way. She has accepted an invitation to perform a select number of show-stopping performances in the UK in 2018, accompanied by the National Philharmonic Orchestra.
