Walk In My Shoes is a new show by PJ Powers and Tigger Reunert that will be on at The Showroom Theatre on Saturday, August 24 at 8pm.
This show is a stripped-down look at songs from PJ Powers’ long and colourful career in the South African music industry. All of the well-loved hits are there – unplugged versions of “Feel So Strong,” through “The World in Union” and her ode to the Stadium she got to know so well while fronting Hotline in the 80s – “Jabulani.”
She also includes renditions of her latest hits, “Destiny” and “Stay” that are enjoying airplay at the moment as well as her newly released single: “Walk in my Shoes.” The latter being a hauntingly earnest plea for all of us to consider one another in a more compassionate way.
She is accompanied by Tigger Reunert on guitars and vocals and together they weave a beautiful and nostalgic tale covering the last thirty-something years in the music business.
PJ has been busy. She has written a book, she has been writing songs and she continues to perform throughout the continent and the world.
This quintessentially South African show provides an insight into ‘PJ Powers – The Person’ through songs, stories and amusing anecdotes in an intimate environment that audiences have been finding spellbinding.
PJ is upbeat and optimistic about life in South Africa and during the show she shares inspiring stories of her life in this beautiful country.
It is a feel good show and has great appeal for South Africans here and abroad from an sentimental point of view as well as for audiences merely interested in a good night out listening to an amazing singer playing great songs backed by a tight band.
Her relationship and travels with former President Nelson Mandela provide funny and light-hearted snippets of the humility of the great man. She has been an ambassador for Khulisa Solutions and has done much work with them throughout Africa, Europe and the US in striving to improve the lives of young South Africans through various mentorship and leadership programs.
Tickets are R150pp and can be booked at The Showroom or online.
