There's no denying the fact that so many people in Mzansi are really going through it right now and September 2019 has cast a dark cloud over the Spring-time joy of many. From lamenting the gross injustices done to our kin, to mourning the death of a gifted and deeply loved member of our Idols family, Thami Shobede it's been...well... a lot. In fact it all seems rather bleak until you remember that love, hope and compassion resonate MOST when people desperately need to see and hear them. So rather than dispair, our hopefuls are hoping to use their phenomenal gifts to acknowledge what we're all enduring and rekindle people's faith in all things good, true and beautiful... because that's the only way a broken heart can heal.

They do say, after all, that music speaks to the heart like no other artform, so what better way to INSPIRE healing than through song? Here's what your Idols are bringing to the stage.

And in case you missed anything or just need a refresher, here's the full breakdown.
