Bones set to inspire

2015-04-30 16:58

SINGING sensation Vincent Bones, winner of the 2014 South African Idols Competition, will wow the audience at this year’s Welkom’s Got Talent grand finale. The event will be held on 23 May.

Bones will be a guest performer to bring the curtain down on the talent search initiative for this year, the third edition of the competition.

Bones shot into the limelight following a stunning performance that revealed his talent. The 29-year-old Bones’s inspiring life story touched many South Africans during the audition phase of last year’s competition. After his mother and uncle had passed away, Bones left Eldorado Park in Gauteng on a train at the tender age of 12 and became a street kid in Sunnyside, Pretoria.

A stint in Boy Town turned his life around and he now works as a church worship leader at the Eagle Christian Centre in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, where he lives with his wife and their baby boy.

Bones describes his musical style as old-school Randamp;B, retro-soul.

“I love the old stuff, like Teddy Pendergrass. So even if I don’t know the song, I get the meaning behind it and interpret it in my own way,” Bones says.

Bones, who was invited by the Welkom’s Got Talent pioneers, aims to inspire the contestants to show their talent.

Contestants may call Judy Moran at the Goldfields Mall centre management office on 057-352-4251 during office hours.
