After debuting with a sold-out 6 week run in Johannesburg in 2014 and a highly successful second season there in February this year, The Greatest Love of All – The Whitney Houston Show starring Belinda Davids will be travelling to Cape Town for a limited season at the Artscape Opera House from 8 to 19 April 2015.
Since being staged in Johannesburg, there has been such a demand for the show to travel to Cape Town – where Belinda Davids is based – and Showtime Management have listened to those requests and responded with tour dates!
This brilliant concert featuring South Africa’s own Belinda Davids is equal parts fun, heart-felt and uplifting. Accompanied by a live band and dancers, Davids pays tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers by performing over 2 hours of Houston’s pop hits.
And there is no person better equipped to do so. In addition to having a voice described as “jaw-droppingly similar” to the pop diva, Davids openly acknowledges that Houston is her personal idol and was the original inspiration for her own career when she began singing at the age of 14.
“I want people to come and remember Whitney when she was at the top of her game and when she was fabulous”, says Davids.
And people all over the world have done exactly that, with South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada and the USA already hosting sold-out performances in the show’s first year of touring.
The show includes over 20 of Houston’s most popular tracks taken from the full span of her career, including ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All’, ‘I’m Every Woman’, ‘Exhale (Shoop Shoop)’, ‘Million Dollar Bill’ and more.
Davids will again be directed by Showtime Management CEO John Van Grinsven Snr. and joined on tour by the production team responsible for the worldwide hit show Michael Jackson HIStory starring Kenny Wizz.
“The soul of Whitney Houston is not only alive on the Mandela Stage but its effortless, mesmerizing and in full voice. Don't believe me? You will.”
- Rave Review
“If you had walked into the iZulu Theatre blindfolded and listened to the opening son, you would be forgive for thinking you were listening to Houston herself, Davids is that good.”
- Star Tonight
“The iconic Egyptian-like shake of the head, the smile, the clicking fingers and open arms that accompany the countless high notes, all attest to David’s knowledge of the character is she portraying.”
“I saw Whitney live in concert twice. Belinda Davids’ show featuring her songs was, dare I say, better.”
