AWARD-WINNING South African artist Loyiso Bala is set to perform in Port Elizabeth for one night only during the Easter Weekend at Word of Faith Christian Centre.

Known for his smooth voice, Bala has performed across the globe alongside the likes of John Legend, Jamelia, Elton John and Will Smith.

He has won five SAMAs and three Metro FM Awards, two of which were for the best R and B album and best producer and was also nominated at the MTV awards alongside international stars Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Akon.

When asked about his upcoming performance in Port Elizabeth, Bala said, “I have been looking forward to coming back to Word of Faith since my last visit. To gather my hometown in one place so as to worship our God is the greatest privilege that I could ever ask for. The Spirit was so tangible the last time that I have no doubt that God will reveal himself in the same manner once again.

“I love to sing, not only to entertain, but to make an eternal difference in people’s lives and so gospel music has afforded me this opportunity. May you be blessed, encouraged and changed as you join us in celebrating our Risen Saviour.”

Having graduated top of his class at the Drakensberg Boys Choir, Bala became the youngest conductor of the National Youth Choir at nineteen and has since become a household name in SA, with his very first album selling triple platinum.

A philanthropist at heart, he is an ambassador for Nelson Mandela’s 46664, the Smile Foundation, Afrika Tikkun, Cotlands and the South African Field Band Foundation, which sees him supporting several charitable and worthwhile causes.

He was also appointed the national UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), where he raises awareness around HIV testing and disclosure, reduction of stigma, discrimination against people living with HIV, and gender inequality - including violence against women and girls.

In 2012, Bala recorded his much-anticipated live Christian music DVD, Love Complete. He went on to release a chart-topping single, Time to Dance, which garnered huge success and became the precursor to his second Christian music project, Power/Love/Sound.

Loyiso Bala will perform live at Word of Faith Christian Centre on April 14 at 7pm. Tickets are R80 for adults and R30 for teens. Entry is free for children under the age of ten.
