HEENOP & HOFMEYR TEAM UP AT EMPERORS (article first published : 2007-03-18)

Durban-based singer Mariette Heenop has been invited by South Africa’s top-selling artist Steve Hofmeyr to perform in his hugely popular Neil Diamond tribute, Beautiful Noise, which is to be staged at the Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg from June 6 to 17.

The show will see Hofmeyr and Heenop collaborate on the 1978 chart-topping duet by Diamond and Barbra Streisand, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers. This breakthrough follows on the back of Heenop’s guest appearance on Hofmeyr’s Dis Hoe Dit Is… chat show on DStv in December last year.

Heenop, who has been performing her own, touching tribute to the magical singing of Streisand the past couple of years, will also be performing a solo rendition of the Cats classic, Memory as part of Beautiful Noise production at Emperors.

In addition, Melvin Peters, the well-known Durban jazz pianist who works regularly with Heenop and forms part of her Streisand production, will join her in Johannesburg as keyboard player for Hofmeyr’s show, which is featuring a live band this time around.

Book at Computicket (083 915 8000) or the Emperors Palace box office.
