‘Music and Stories’ with Heinrich Frans and friends

2 min read

The show, titled Music and Stories, will be held on Tuesday 15 December at Youngblood Studios in Bree Street.

It will feature Heinrich Frans, who has performed as lead and backing vocalist for international artists, such as Jonathan Butler, Kirk Whalum, Oleta Adams, Diana Ross, Bebe Winans, Josh Groban, and Mark Fransman’s Strait and Narro.

He will be joined by the gifted Angelo Syster (electric guitar), who is the guitarist for Moreira Chonguica, along with RJ Benjamin (voice).

Busy year for RJ Benjamin

Never one to rest on his laurels, singer, songwriter, producer, vocal coach, music director and performer Benjamin put his time to productive use in 2020. In the process, he took stock of his rich archive and compiled 12 classic gems, dusted them all off and has proudly delivered a spring clean aptly dubbed The House Features.

Since his vocal coaching and production of the DHL Stormers and Friends recording in early March, Benjamin has been rifling through his past, remembering when he had hair and the joys of producing profound house tracks, many of which have never been made available on streaming platforms.

Expect to hear fantastic stories about the songs they both love, and which have influenced and shaped their musical journeys, including Let’s Pretend, Wonderwall, Change the World, Nature Boy, Tobacco Road, After the Love has Gone, Fragile, Tears in Heaven and many more.

COVID-19 safety measures in place
