Johannesburg – Francois van Coke covered a Sonja Herholdt classic on his TV show, (which is called Die Van Coke Show) and it was breathtaking.
The new show, which is centred on Francois’ passions and interests, airs at 20:30 on Monday evenings on kykNET (DStv channel 144).
A highlight of Die Van Coke Show is that its participants have to follow clues and guess which Afrikaans hit Francois will cover, with a rock ‘n roll twist, at the end of each show.
There are 13 episodes in this series which means that there are 13 songs sprouting from the TV show. The “mystery” song is released on digital platforms and its accompanying performance music video on YouTube every Monday evening after the show.
The first song Francois covered was Gé Korsten’s evergreen hit, Liefling. This iconic song quickly reached the iTunes singles chart.
This week the cover was Sonja Herold’s ballad, Ek Verlang Na Jou.
