South Africa has no shortage of amazing talent. Street performances (also known as busking) aren’t overly popular in SA, but now and then, you’ll come across local talent performing on a street corner, bench, or parking lot and think to yourself, “Wow, this person deserves to be a star!”
This was the case with one talented homeless woman who brought viewers to tears with her stunning performance of Rihanna’s Love on The Brain at the Cape Dutch Gardens in Cape Town.
The video was uploaded by a user (@yvettelondon0) just over a month ago, captioned:
“What an AMAZING Voice, they are homeless??? WHY! She needs an agent, the right agent that will take care for her as well as promote her……Somebody Please…”
The video has already garnered over 1.4 million likes, close to 48 000 comments, 100 000 saves, and 80 000 shares.
