Singer  Tamia is to perform in a three-city tour in South Africa.

The month of  April will see the star travel to the Grand Arena, GrandWest, Cape Town on Saturday, 26 April; Big Top Arena, Carnival City, Joburg on Sunday, 27 April; and the Boardwalk Convention Centre, Port Elizabeth on 30 April.

Soul singer and six-time Grammy-nominated performer Tamia Hill began honing her voice when she was still a child growing-up in Canada. Living near the boogie down city of Detroit, the then-budding talent was exposed to that city's rich musical history through its deep gospel tradition and booming Motown sound.

"I feel a connection to all types of music," Tamia said from her home in Florida.

"From soul to country to gospel, as long as the song has a good story, I'm hooked." Citing Phyllis Hyman and Chaka Khan as influences, Tamia strives to bring freshness to the soul arena.

From her debut single You Put A Move On My Heart, produced by Quincy Jones in 1994, to her more recent song cycle, Tamia possesses both a hypnotic charm and timeless voice.

Tamia will travel to South Africa with her band and perform hits from all her albums.
