Marmalade Productions is proud to present Divas 2018 featuring international award-winning superwoman, Karyn White.

White will be supported by the cream of South African female talent for the show on Saturday 28 July at the Grand Arena, GrandWest, from 20:00.

White possesses one of the most memorable, distinctive voices ever heard in popular music. She’s an accomplished singer/songwriter who etched herself into music history with her smash hit song, the female anthem “Superwoman”. That song made international waves, selling over a million units, being certified Gold and named the Billboard R&B Song of the Year in 1989.

In 2011, White opened the doors of Karyn White Enterprises Inc., a dynamic multi-platform media company offering diverse and uplifting entertainment across the broad media landscapes of music, television and film. White released her long-awaited album, Carpe Diem, on her own label, distributed through Light Year/EMI.

Currently, White’s new movie and soundtrack, Gale & the Storm, is a story loosely based on her life and that of her manager Jay King, legendary music producer and founder of Grammy award-winning group, Club Nouveau. The movie’s synopsis revolves around a revolutionary music producer who links up with a legendary soul singer and tries to convince her to sing again. White executive produced, co-wrote and starred in the film.

White also executive produced, co-wrote and recorded eight songs on the soundtrack for Gale & the Storm. The soundtrack is a brilliant fusion of cosmic funk, soul, rock and R&B. White recorded the songs in a record-breaking two and a half days while filming the movie in a seven-day period. White delivers an array of fiery and soulful melodies while belting out every note and inflection with power. White has no intention of slowing down any time soon. Her upcoming plans include appearing as a series regular in the BET sitcom Beauty and the Baller, created and produced by Emmy award-winning writer Michael Ajakawe. White also debuted in the Lionsgate feature film American Bad Boy starring Kat Williams. She is also gearing up for tour dates in South Africa, the UK and Japan. VTickets cost between R195 and R300. Bookings through Computicket, Shoprite Checkers and all House & Home stores.
