Post - - BOLLY/KOLLY -

JONITA Gandhi fans are elated af­ter the re­cent an­nounce­ment that the song­bird will be tour­ing South Africa next month.

In her de­but SA per­for­mance, Gandhi will hit the stage on Novem­ber 4 at the The­atre of Mar­cel­lus at Em­per­ors Palace in Jo­han­nes­burg.

“We con­tinue to bring world-class en­ter­tain­ment to South African stages and are thrilled to be host­ing Jonita Gandhi for the first time in South Africa,” said Os­man Os­man, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Blu Blood, who to­gether with Muz­i­corp presents Jonita Gandhi – Live in Con­cert.

“The con­cert prom­ises to be a su­per, power-packed and un­for­get­table show that is not to be missed.”

Fans across the globe came to know this Indo-Cana­dian song­bird when she shot to fame back in 2011 on YouTube with her cov­ers of pop­u­lar Bol­ly­wood songs which have gained her mil­lions of views.

It was only a mat­ter of time be­fore Gandhi was picked up by com­posers to sing Bol­ly­wood num­bers. She has since grown as an award-win­ning play­back singer and full-time record­ing artist and per­former.

Her chart­buster hits in­clude The Breakup Song (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil), Gilehriyaan (Dan­gal) and Sau Tarah Ke (Dishoom).

Gandhi made her Bol­ly­wood de­but in the ti­tle track of the 2013 block­buster film, Chen­nai Ex­press, star­ring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.

She has also fea­tured on MTV In­dia’s Coke Stu­dio Sea­son 3 and re­leased two songs in the film High­way with mu­sic by AR Rah­man.

The per­for­mance will start at 6pm. Tick­ets, from R300, at Com­puticket. | POST Re­porter
