THE Idols-winner Elvis Blue will perform at the Old Mill Theatre on Friday 13 April at 20:00.
His album, titled Elvis Blue was released in November 2010 and shot up the radio and sales charts to reach Gold status.
The first two singles Things My Father said and Lighthouse were massive hits and the third single, Save Me, is currently on playlists across the country. The album went platinum in late 2011 with sales in excess of 40 000 units.
Balance this divine gift with great humility, a kind heart and the work ethic of Henry Ford and you begin to understand the soul within this artist.
Since the release of his album, Elvis has set himself apart as an exceptional performer of live music, using some of the best local musicians to round out his band on stage, insisting on delivering music with depth to audiences across the country. Elvis is also a dedicated husband and father besides being a world class musician and a household name in South Africa.
The success of Elvis Blue over the past few years enabled himself to invest in something very near and dear to his heart The Elvis Blue Music Academy. The Academy was started by Elvis to teach underprivileged children the joy of music.
The organisation provides instruments and instruction in a safe, warm environment.
“Music has the ability to heal. This venture is living proof of that,” Elvis said.
The Elvis Blue Music Academy operates in the Western Cape, George and is rolling out in Alexandra in Gauteng in the near future.
Elvis’s success is due to years of hard work, passion and commitment, and even though the path has been long and sometimes never ending, the real journey has only begun now.
Tickets at R120 per person (R100 for students) can be booked with Vicky on 083 564 0056.
