Idols SA winner Berenike 'Berry' Trytsman says she's glad she took a chance when she entered the singing competition earlier this year.

Trytsman, who hails from Cape Town, was crowned this year's winner during a live finale on Sunday night.

The star has become an instant millionaire and scored a record deal with Kalawa Jazmee Records, along with a range of other prizes.

Trytsman has previously entered the competition, making it to the top 30 of season 6 back in 2010.

This time around, it was her last chance to enter Idols due to her age, and she took home the title.

Trytsman says she hopes she can keep making her supporters proud as she continues the next phase of her musical career.

"I feel so honoured that everybody has fallen in love with me", she says.

I don't think it has sunk in at all. I'm still thinking I'm waiting for my next song that I need to learn that I need to sing this Sunday on TV. It doesn't feel like it's over yet, it feels amazing.

I promised myself that I would enter one last time and in the meantime since the last time I entered life happened - marriage, children, even got divorced, got married again, more children. I kind of just thought if I don't do it now I'll never do it.
