Good morning Everyone,

I hope you have had a wonderful week.

I have been so busy not only with my vocal school that gives me so much joy!

I have done 2 interviews in the last 8 days about becoming a Unseen International 2021 Semi finalist,

First with SANZ radio in New Zealand,yes you read that right!

Deon Wallace was really kind and even played 2 of my songs!

Sterk which is all about being strong and was written during the pandemic.Of course,Swing Low Sweet Chariot which is a beautiful hymn.Bianca and I covered it as a response to the English Rugby Union discussing whether it should be sung at their rugby matches.

Fortunately #UnitythroughMusic and #StrongerTogether won through.

On Thursday I chatted to Bradley and Sakhe much closer to home on Radio KC 107.7 FM

That was great fun chatting about the importance of inner beauty and this is what pageants should be about

I am so grateful to Charina Joubert for deeming me worthy of being a Semi Finalist.

Of course,my Manager Samantha Oliphant for all her hard work,she is just the best strategist I know!

She is so kind,big-hearted and works so hard.I am just so blessed

My PR manager is based in the UK but if there is a PR person who has a better contact book.His speed dial button is amazing.

He just seems to know who to contact and when.

I hope the listeners at SANZLIVE and Radio KC enjoyed the interviews.

I am having so much fun and hope our aim of raising lots of rands for #StandUnitedSA will highlight the evil of GBV

Thank you for reading and have a peaceful and safe Sunday

Maritza
