The Top 7 Idols finalists are hard at work this week preparing for a special Choral Spectacular this weekend, with guest stars: the Drakensberg Boys Choir.
Dominic Neill chose Coldplay’s Paradise for his choral number and Tshidi Tenyane plans to reinterpret Mary J. Blige’s As.
Melissa Allison made a bold choice in Aretha Franklin and Annie Lennox’s hit from the Eighties, Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves.
Sheki Donnell picked Macy Grey’s big hit, I Try, and her fellow Durbanite, Khaya Mthethwa, is performing R. Kelly’s anthem, I Am The World’s Greatest.
Simphiwe Gwegwe also chose an R. Kelly song, Sign Of A Victory, and Monde Msutwana’s choice is Prince’s classic Purple Rain.
This week the Top 7 are getting expert advice from their musical mentor, South Africa’s award-winning and platinum-selling songstress, Lira.
The Idols Season 8 Top 7 Spectacular airs on M-Net and M-Net HD and Mzansi Magic on Sunday, 26 August, at 17:30.
