Grammy winner Lebo M to make a special appearance at Disney’s The Lion King Live in Concert

November 27th, 2019

Disney’s The Lion King Live in Concert, in collaboration with FNB, will provide patrons with a breath-taking opening night when the revered music producer and composer, Lebo-M takes the audience through a mesmeric performance of ‘The Circle of Life’.

This is the soundtrack that Lebo-M composed with renowned Hollywood composer Hans Zimmer which won them a 1995 Grammy for best instrumental arrangement with accompanying vocals.

Lebo-M will join the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra – led by South African conductor – Eddie Clayton on stage at The Sun Arena, Times Square in Pretoria on 10th December for one night only. The shows will take place on 10th, 11th and 12th December.

Speaking about his involvement in this proudly South African production, Lebo-M had this to say, “I am very proud to be part of a journey that started over 25 years ago, with Disney’s The Lion King. I can’t wait for people to experience The Lion King Live in Concert with a full orchestra – that boosts 84 renowned musicians made up of 50 string players, 11 woodwinds, 13 brass, 1 harp, 6 percussion, 1 guitarist, 1 electric bass and a keyboard – at Sun Arena.

This will be an extraordinary experience not to be missed, and I look forward to seeing you there. Imagine being transported into Simba’s playful world with all its adventure, love and loyalty, as well as the jealousy, threats and dangers of their wicked and wily foes through soaring orchestral sounds – I do not think there’s any better way to bring this magical experience to life than this!”

Bonga Sebesho, Head of Sponsorship at FNB says, “We are delighted to collaborate with a global brand to bring this family event to South African audiences, many of which are our customers. As FNB, we don’t see ourselves as a bank, but a lifestyle brand that is centred on providing experiences and solutions that matter to our customers.”

November 26th, 2019

About coming home, Anna comments: “I can’t wait to come back to South Africa. My South African fans are just the best and I am so grateful for them. I have seen the impact my music has had on them, emotionally and physically – the ones that have tattoos of my lyrics and I have recently seen a fan get a tattoo of my face on their arm! Now that is dedication and I am quite flattered by that level of support.”

Anna Wolf’s live shows are definitely not a “show-and-tell” stereotypical “girl with guitar” affair. They have been described as being hypnotizing; an experience; a journey into the world of Anna Wolf’s storytelling and songwriting abilities.

Fans at her shows use a howling sound in between songs instead of clapping, which gives you the feeling of community and unity through music and builds a unique live atmosphere. Anna will leave you with a feeling of knowing or unveiling your own truths about your inner struggles or challenges.

Currently based in London, where she is building a strong and ever-growing loyal fan base, Anna has been working with various A-list producers, musicians and songwriters and is feeling the momentum of her hard work.

Anna’s powerful new single, Silence, has recently been released to South African radio stations and delivers a strong message. The song deals with anxiety, something which most people can personally relate to on a certain level. The song was inspired by her fellow “wolves” (the way she refers to her fans) who shared their own stories with her.

Anna was recently presented with Unsigned Only’s GRAND PRIZE WINNER 2019 award for her single, Believer – the first time where the prize was awarded to a South African artist.  She beat out almost 6000 entries from over 100 countries (www.unsignedonly.com). The illustrious panel of judges, which included Robert Smith (The Cure) and Aimee Mann, collectively described Anna as a “truly a compelling and rare artist.  She is a performer with passion and style, a singer with hauntingly beautiful vocals, and a songwriter with depth and vulnerability. One of the most magnetic and inspiring artists we have ever come across.”
