SA multimedia star Heinz Winckler will be performing at Die Boer theatre restaurant in Durbanville on Saturday, February 20, at 8.30pm.
Winckler will probably always be known locally as the first winner of South African ‘Idols’ back in 2002, but the singer has quite a few other significant notches on his belt. These include coming in fourth place at ‘World Idol’, singing a song on a Disney soundtrack, three SAMA nominations, winning three People Magazine Crystal Awards, releasing the ‘Once In A Lifetime’ single, as well as six studio albums and two Live DVD’s, from which he achieved Double Platinum, Platinum and Gold status sales.
Winckler also played the lead role in the North American and Japanese touring production of ‘Rent’, landed roles in the local soapie ‘Binnelanders’ and drama series ‘Getroud Met Rugby’, has done continuity presenting on the kykNET channel, and played the lead role in ‘Jesus The Musical’ at the Pretoria State Theatre. He also regularly hosts a workshop for aspiring singers and produces music for up and coming artists.
Winckler may be more relevant than he has ever been.
