In the fifth and final instalment of M-Net’s local music special, Afrikaans pop heartthrob and The Voice SA coach Bobby van Jaarsveld rounds up the series with a heartwarming concert for fans. The man with the abs will host and perform in his very own M-Net and Friends special on Sunday 22 January from 17:30 on Channel 101.
Local music stars such as Kahn and The Parlotones, Arno Carstens, Swing City and Lira previously appeared in this series of once-off music specials, which was created to showcase and support some of the biggest acts on the South African music scene. As was the case with Bobby’s famous counterparts, he will be appearing in concert with some very special guests, including his sister Karlien van Jaarsveld, the Tshwane Gospel Choir, Dozi as well as popular The Voice SA alum from Season 1, blind singer Vernon Barnard!
Just like his fellow Voice SA coach, Lira, Bobby has committed to mentoring talent from his team above and beyond his duties on the hit series. Vernon, whose first "Blind Audition” last year has garnered well over 10 million YouTube views to date, has recently released his first single, and chats candidly with Bobby about what he’s been up to since he reached the Top 4 in the show. Fans can look forward to an uplifting collaboration by Bobby and Vernon of the classic Don’t Worry, Be Happy, as well as other moving musical tributes by Bobby, as well as Karlien and Dozi, who brings the house down with his interpretation of the great Brenda Fassie’s Vulindlela.
Bobby will be back again on M-Net Channel 101 on Sunday, 29 January at 17:30, along with his three fellow coaches, in the premiere episode of Season 2 of The Voice SA.
