Whitney Houston fans are in for a treat come 22 June to 8 July 2018, when South African starlet, Belinda Davids, will take to the stage to give a LIVE performance of the some of Whitney’s greatest hits, including Greatest Love of All, Saving All My love, and I Will Always Love you.
Get ready for a powerful, moving rendition of these favourite songs, delivered by the talented Belinda Davids. Here’s a little more about the up-and-coming artist.
- How did your singing career begin – what was your big break?
I’ve been able to sing since the age of five, and my professional career started when I was 14. I lived in Los Angeles for a long time, so I was a struggling artist until I started touring with Keyshia Cole as a backup singer and I think that’s when things changed for me. But this show was and is my big break!
- Did you always know you were going to be a singer/star?
I always knew that I wanted to sing because Whitney taught me how to sing. I had no idea that singing my idols’ music would take me around the world and allow me the opportunity to sing in front of global audiences, but I always knew I wanted to sing.
- What has been a major highlight for you in your career?
To be honest, this show is the highlight of my career. Being able to do a tribute to the great Whitney Houston on this scale and on such a prestigious stage is an incredible feeling, and travelling the world and keeping her memory alive is what’s inspiring me to keep pushing to make this show everything and more for her fans.
- Do you feel this show connects you to Whitney in some way?
Most definitely. I need to feel a bit connected to her in order to give a great show.
- How does it feel performing the music of such a legend?
It’s nerve wracking every time – the challenge of belting out 21 songs that are 100% on point each and every single time does add pressure. But all that really doesn’t matter, because at the end of the day it’s that rush that I love so much. And the fact that it’s her, “THE VOICE”, makes it all so worth it. I see Whitney every night in my mind’s eye, and she is and has always been the artist I listen to in order to sing better. But this will be my first time performing at Emperors Palace and I look forward to having an absolutely incredible time on stage and with the beautiful audience.
- What can audiences look forward to from this show?
I’ll be bringing fans the full Whitney concert experience, including seven fabulous costume changes, a full band with a team of impeccable dancers, and of course a brilliant tech team responsible for making the show look amazing from the audience’s seats. We’ll be performing all of her number one hits, from the very beginning of her career right up until the end.
- Where have we seen you before?
You’ve probably seen me on BBC’s Even Better Than the Real Thing, as well as Showtime at The Apollo with Steve Harvey.
