2009-08-11 00:00

THE winner of the M-Net Idols competition, Jason Hartman, caused a little stir at the Liberty Midlands Mall yesterday when fans young and old surrounded him for pictures and autographs.

Hartman was declared a joint winner of the Idols competion earlier this year after a technical problem had resulted in some of his votes not being counted.

He said he was in Pietermaritzburg to sign autographs for his fans and to promote his concert that will be hos­ted at the Stonehaven Lodge next week.

He said the concert is being held to thank all his fans in the province who voted for him during the competition.

“This will be the first thank-you concert to all the people of the province who have supported me.”

Hartman is a former pupil of Howick High School.

He described time in the limelight as wonderful, saying he plans on going from strength to strength.

Hartman is currently recording a new album which is to be released in October.

He said the people coming to his concert next week should expect a great deal of singing.

“All the fans coming should expect to see me and my family singing and having a good time.”

Natasha Gerhard of Stonehaven Lodge told The Witness, “The concert has been titled ‘Thank You KZN’ because he is thanking the people who supported him in the province.

She said Hartman is a local who deserves the support he has received.

The concert will take place on August 15, starting at noon.

Tickets cost R100 and children under 12 years of age get in for free.
