The Grand Arena at GrandWest Casino is one of only two stops that four of the most memorable music divas of the 1990s will make when they tour South Africa this month. In the lineup for the concert, ‘Divas of Dance’, on Saturday, September 24, are Crystal Waters (pictured), CeCe Peniston, Sybil and Robin S.
The Joburg event will be held at The Big Top Arena, Carnival City on September 25.
Fans will be taken on a nostalgic trip back to the 1990s as the divas resurrect the songs that made them famous, including Waters’ ‘Gypsy Woman’ and ‘100% Pure Love’; Peniston’s ‘Finally’ and ‘We Got a Love Thang’; Sybil’s ‘Don’t Make Me Over’ and ‘Walk On By’; and Robin S’ ‘Show Me Love’ and ‘Luv 4 Luv’.
Waters is a house music singer and songwriter whose song ‘100% Pure Love’ hit number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100 and became one of the longest charting singles. Along with the single, the singer released her second album ‘Storyteller’, which sold over 284000 copies in the United States (US). In March 2013, ‘Oh, Mama, Hey’ by Chris Cox and DJ Frankie featuring Crystal Waters, reached number one on the US Billboard Dance/Club Charts after just eight weeks.
