Judith Sephuma is more than just one of South Africa’s preeminent female vocalists, she is a rare songbird deeply rooted in African soil yet her voice transcends the heavens every time she utters a note.
Now she is set to bring her eclectic adult contemporary sound to The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino on 29 January 2011.
Born and raised in Polokwane, Judith knew that she wanted to be a singer from an early age. Her career took off shortly after she sang at former President Thabo Mbeki’s inauguration (1999) and won a major award in June of that year for Best Jazz Vocalist at the Old Mutual Jazz Into The Future competition. Judith was catapulted into stardom with her debut album in 2001, the critically-acclaimed A Cry, A Smile, A Dance and has released two critically acclaimed studio albums since then – New Beginnings (2005) and Change Is Here (2008).
Judith Sephuma is a multi-award winning vocalist earning three SAMAs (South Africa Music Awards) for her second album titled New Beginnings including the coveted Best Female Artist and Best Jazz Vocal Album categories.
Judith blends grace and sophistication with playfulness to deliver quality music that is extremely listenable. She will perform all time favourites as well as new material at this not-to-be-missed show at The Lyric Theatre on Saturday 29 January 2011 at 20h30.
