Cape Town – Belinda Davids has been awarded special recognition from the UK music industry and returns to South Africa later this year for a limited series of concerts in Cape Town.
Showtime Australia artist and Port Elizabeth-born, Belinda Davids, was thrilled to receive the International Special Recognition Award at the UK’s National Tribute Music Awards held in Droitwich last week.
Famed for her role in the hit show The Greatest Love of All: A Tribute to Whitney Houston, Belinda took home the accolade in acknowledgement of her “global contribution to tribute performing” and “ground-breaking influence on the music industry.”
After winning BBC TV’s Even Better Than The Real Thing musical contest in 2017, Belinda has been mesmerised by the UK audiences’ support for her and the world-class tribute show over the years.
“I feel honoured to have had my life’s work and my craft recognized, especially here in the UK. As an artist, there’s nothing more rewarding than knowing that you affect people, that you make a difference in people’s lives, in whatever way that is,” she said.
In addition to receiving her award, Belinda performed three Whitney Houston tracks
