Branden James up close and personal
Do not miss this exclusive and intimate performance by America's Got Talent Finalist 2013; Branden James, as he performs just this ONE concert while on holiday in Johannesburg, on Sunday 14 September at 3pm.
In Branden James - Up Close and Personal, this highly acclaimed international classical/crossover tenor will take you on a heart-warming personal musical journey encompassing his love for all music styles, most especially classic, theatre, jazz interspersed with well known pop numbers.
Remembered as one of the popular Twelve Tenors when they performed to a great response and critical acclaim in Johannesburg in 2010, Branden has been wanting to return to the city and country he fell in love with whilst here, ever since.
The audience will be treated to instantly recognisable hits like You Raise Me Up, Nessun Dorma, I've got you under my skin, New York New York, Desperado, Rocket Man, Your Song, This is a Man's World, Ave Maria and The Prayer to name but a few.
Joining Branden on stage will be British diva vocalist from Liverpool, Home of The Beatles, Alison Ward for a few numbers, as well as a special guest appearance by local rock legend, Cito. Superb accompaniment will be performed by Wayne Purchase on piano and Elena Zlatkova on violin, ensuring a night to remember for all those in attendance.
James states; "On my first visit to South Africa in 2010 with The Twelve Tenors, I instantly fell in love with the country. There is a spirit in the culture and the people of South Africa that is unparalleled. I find the political history and triumph over struggle so incredibly fascinating. I've dreamt of my return to the heart and soul of Africa for many years now and I cannot wait to share an afternoon of song with you. My audience can expect a concert filled full of stories and humor and various musical genres with some very special surprise musical guests. I'm grateful to be performing once again in your glorious nation. May it be the first of many return trips."
