Belinda Davids revives spectacular tribute concert in memory of Whitney Houston
South Africa's own Belinda Davids is back in town to bring Whitney Houston’s musical legacy to life on stage.
The singer is returning to Cape Town with her tribute show The Greatest Love of All at the Artscape Theatre.
The tribute concert opens at the Artscape on Wednesday 20 November and will run until Sunday 1 December.
Davids has just completed a tour of the show in Russia and the UK, gripping audiences with her breathtaking vocals.
She joined CapeTalk's Pippa Hudson to share a snippet of what to expect from her stellar performance.
Davids has been keeping the late Whitney Houston's memory alive with The Greatest Love of All, which has been going for seven years across the globe.
The star says she was captivated by Houston from a young age and was always told she had the voice to match.
Davids says she's loved taking the tribute show to the world after years of studying the music icon who remains sorely missed.
