Loyiso Bala Back for Easter
Award-winning South African artist, Loyiso Bala is set to perform in Port Elizabeth at Word of Faith Christian Centre on the 30th of March.
Known for his smooth R&B voice, Loyiso has performed across the globe alongside the likes of John Legend, Elton John and Will Smith and has performed for dignitaries such as Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson, Gordon Brown, Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey.
Having won seven SAMAs, three Metro FM Awards and a South African Film and Television Award - SAFTA for Best Musical Score, Loyiso was also nominated at the MTV awards alongside international stars Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Akon.
In addition, he was a popular choice for voters in You Magazine’s sexiest man, GQ magazine’s most stylish man and Men’s Health magazine’s best man.
Loyiso is the host of several TV programmes; TBN Meets on TBN, The Mic on SABC 3, Called to Worship on One Gospel, in addition to hosting a weekly Christian radio show The Open Book on CliffCentral.
As a teenager, Loyiso Bala was classically trained, finishing top of his class at the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir in South Africa. At only 15 years old he was inundated into the Unisa Book of Honour for having received the highest mark in South Africa in the Grade 7 singing exam. He later became the youngest conductor of the South African National Youth Choir at the age of 19.
A philanthropist at heart, Loyiso is an ambassador for Nelson Mandela’s 46664, the Smile Foundation, Afrika Tikkun, Cotlands and the South African Field Band Foundation, which sees him supporting several charitable and worthwhile causes.
Loyiso was also appointed the national UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), where he raises awareness around HIV testing and disclosure, reduction of stigma, discrimination against people living with HIV, and gender inequality - including violence against women and girls.
Loyiso is one-third of the Bala Brothers, a group consisting of Loyiso and his two equally talented brothers. The group released their self-titled album with Warner Brothers Records, USA. Their American produced live DVD was broadcast to over 80% of the USA audience.
