The West Coast welcomes Jody Williams as she prepares to wow audiences at an exclusive live performance at Mykonos Casino on the 28th of March. The Casino is thrilled to have her for a special one-night only performance which promises to be one of the hottest events on the Western Cape Casino’s annual events calendar.
The former South African idol winner, better known as Jody, became a role model for young aspiring singers when she won the fourth season of the reality TV programme in 2007. At the time she was just 17, making her the youngest winner of the competition so far.
Jody started singing at age nine and by 13 she was receiving vocal training. Her father (whom she has described as her biggest inspiration) immediately recognised her vocal talent. During the six-month-long competition, Jody became known for her compelling renditions of power ballads by artists such as Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and Christina Aguilera.
Says Mykonos Casino Marketing Manager, Natasha Brand, “We are delighted that Jody will be performing live at Mykonos Casino and so excited that the audience will get the opportunity to enjoy her impressive ability to deliver and breathe life into both old and new hits.”
Jody’s platinum-selling album, Just gonna be me, reached #1 on the South African Albums Chart, and spawned three consecutive number one singles on the South African Airplay Chart: Love is all round, Kiss of Life and Wind It. Another hit was Love like this before.
Elements of Pop, R&B, dance and soul can be found in her music, with Jody citing singers Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion as her main musical inspirations and influences.
Audiences can expect to be moved by her powerful voice and energetic stage presence. This show is for one night only and definitely not to be missed.
The show is free for the public and she will be performing from 16:30.
