God Bless Africa
From the heart of Johannesburg, South Africa comes an unusual vocal talent. But it's Mari Michael's versatility and song writing skills that makes her debut album "God Bless Africa" a force to be reckoned with. Mari knew at the tender age of 6 already that the destiny for her life was to be a singer and an actress and strove all of her school career to become as skilled as possible in both. Singing in choirs, singing lessons, playing piano, drama lessons dominated all of her free time. At the young age of 13 Mari landed her first part in the Schuster comedy " There's a Zulu on my Stoep" as little Rowena, and the deal was sealed: Mari was in love with the entertainment industry. During her three year studies at RAU Mari Participated in the RAU Song and Dance Musicals, where she played Velma in their rendition of Chicago. Her performance got her noticed by an agent and after her graduation she joined their books and was cast two days later in Richard Loring's Girl talk-Nite out. The rest is History. Mari has gone on to act in many South African Soap Operas and has finnaly setteled in the music industry as a Gospel Singer. God Bless Africa is her first album. It was a labour of love, as it was self produced, she hopes that everyone who listens to it will be revived with new strength!
