True to its promise to bring the best local and international artists to Tshwane, Time Square plays host to two international, multi-award winners and Grammy Award nominees, as well as two of South Africa’s top artists to its stage for a one night only concert at the Sun Arena this December 2019. Sharing the stage for this epic concert are Brian McKnight, Karyn White, Lira and Lady Zamar.
“What a coup to have two international and two local artists sharing our stage. All four of them are multiple award-winning and exceptionally talented, each bringing their unique blend of music and showmanship to the concert. It is going to be one of the highlights of our festive season entertainment calendar,” says Brett Hoppé, General Manager at Time Square.
Brian McKnight is a singer, songwriter, producer and instrumentalist who plays nine instruments including the piano, guitar, bass, drums, percussions, trombone, tuba, flugelhorn and trumpet. He has sold over 25 million albums worldwide with hit songs like “Back at one”, “One last cry”, “6,8,12”, “The only one for me”, “Anytime”, “Still” and “Show me the way back to your heart”.
Karyn White is a sensational singer and songwriter with over three million albums sold worldwide. Her hit songs include “Superwoman”, “Love saw it”, “Secret rendezvous”, “The way you love me”, “I’d rather be alone”, “I am your woman” and the USA Hot 100 number one single, “Romantic”.
Lady Zamar is one of South Africa’s biggest female artists at the moment. Two years after the release of her first debut solo album, she has won several awards, sold thousands of albums and released her second studio album, Monarch, in June 2019. Some of her hits include “This is love”, “My baby”, “Sunshine”, Adore and Charlotte. Lady Zamar was born in Gauteng’s Tembisa township and later moved to Mamelodi in Pretoria, where she spent most of her childhood.
Lira was discovered in 2000 by musician/producer Arthur Mafokate, who signed her to his record label, 999 Music, and helped with the release of her debut album, All My Love (2003). The album earned her accolades at the Metro FM Awards, South African Music Awards and Channel O Reel Music Awards. The title track even knocked Beyoncé’s single “Dangerously in Love” off the charts. Later signing with Sony Music, Lira has since released seven albums and performed for adoring fans at home and internationally. Lira is considered the foremost adult contemporary female solo artist in South Africa.
