Judith Sephuma Collaborates with Michael Bolton, in Studio, and on Stage!

Having just completed the recording of her own studio album titled I AM A LIVING TESTIMONY (scheduled for release on 5 Sep 2011) Judith Sephuma was approached to lend her voice on the classic Judy Garland signature song and Academy Award-winning ballad ‘Over the Rainbow’ – just in time for it’s inclusion on Michael Bolton’s South African release titled GEMS.

The album includes collaborations by several artists that Michael Bolton hand-picked for this release. He had this to say about working with Judith Sephuma “Judith’s voice and range is magnificent. What an honour to discover on this amazing journey such a pure voice coming from a beautiful, soulful place”.

Tight time schedules resulted in having to record their individual vocals in different countries, while technicians from their record label Sony Music Entertainment merged the two tracks. Now, the two stars finally have the opportunity meet on stage to sing their as yet to be released duet for fans.
