Zahara and Leroy Bell to share stage
Music sensation Zahara has penned a new song - Hold On - which she will unveil to the public for the first time this weekend (8June12).
The recording of her first live DVD will be at Carnival City where she will collaborate with top United States songwriter and singer Leroy Bell.
Speaking to source together with Bell during a rehearsal at the Pyramid Venue & Conference Centre, the award-winning artist said this was a historic occasion for her.
Bell, who arrived in South Africa on Monday (4June12), features in Zahara's DVD recording on Friday and Saturday.
He will perform his well-known song Brand New Day as part of the DVD recording.
"She is an amazing singer who achieved success within a short space of time, a great singer and an accomplished songwriter.
"I had to Google her when I was approached to feature in this DVD. "I got hold of her music, and simply fell in love with her voice," Bell said.
Bell is best known for being a finalist in the reality programme The X Factor, apart from his other musical exploits.
"I just love this man's voice and the fact that I titled a song on my album Brand New Day, just like he has done on his, this is simply an incredible coincidence," said Zahara.
