Singalong stars Kelly Rowland

2010-04-03 00:00

GRAMMY award-winning R&B/pop superstar Kelly Rowland has signed up to sing on a single that marks a celebration of the beautiful game with top South African and African music acts.

Her participation in the single, titled Everywhere You Go, was confirmed by AS Entertainment’s Antos Stella on Thursday.

The former Destiny’s Child singer, whose chart-topping hits include When Loves Takes Over and Daylight, will record the track with Jozi, Slikour, Kwesta and Zuluboy. Others on the track are Cameroon’s Crotale, Senegal’s Awadi, Ghana’s Samini, Nigeria’s 2Face, Rola from Lebanon and Uganda’s Chameleon.

“Kelly Rowland is a hot international artist with cross-over appeal spanning all communities, and we were ecstatic when she jumped at the opportunity to be part of this powerful anthem,” Stella said.

“With the arrival of Africa’s first Fifa World Cup, it was important that we attracted the cream of the continent’s musical talent to collaborate on this song, as well as a ­world-famous headline act.”

Stella would not, however, be drawn on the finer details of Everywhere You Go, saying only that “it is definitely going to hit the back of the net with the listening public”. The track will be released in April.
