On Sunday 30 August 2015, two members of the Supernova team, Chrisna Prinsloo and Andrea Vermaak, took a road trip to Carnival City to watch English folk, blues and rock singer and songwriter, George Ezra.
Bongeziwe Mabandla opened the show with his beautiful, haunting melodies, followed by the ever energetic, entertaining Freshly Ground. The latter took the minds of every South African present back to the past with their hits 'Do Bee Do', 'I'd like' and, of course, 'Waka Waka'.
The lovely George Ezra then took the stage. He held the audience captivated from start to finish with his quirky sense of humour as he told anecdotes of his journey across Europe, and how certain people and places influenced his songwriting. His humble smile and soulful baritone voice then captured a few hearts as he delighted with hits 'Budapest' and 'Blame it on me', as well as few other gems that are sure to be hit singles in the near future.
All too soon, the show was over. We were whisked back to reality and the sparkling lights of Carnival City. We'd happily take another road trip – physically and mentally – with George Ezra any time!
