Cape Town diva Salome Damons Johansen’s dream of performing with her musical icons is soon to come true.
The Mitchells Plain songbird is an opening act for international club queens Sybil and Robin S at Soul Sisters, in association with the Daily Voice.
Salome, 40, says she met Sybil twice before at a Mitchells Plain festival.
But now she reveals that she will be doing a duet with Robin S at the show at the Grand Arena, GrandWest, on 13 June.
Salome took to social media to express her gratitude and says the event will be one of the highlights of her career, after nearly giving up on music.
Salome, 40, says: “People have been very skelm with me over the years but I feel I’m in a good position now with new management, Brukman Consulting.
“This is really a huge moment for me and I’m grateful for the opportunity I’m getting to perform with these huge icons
“It’s true that life begins at 40, Tina Turner started her career at 40 and retired at 60, life is only beginning for me.
“I’m glad that I listened to my mother who always told me that I shouldn’t care about one person not wanting me to sing and ignore the other 99 who love me.”
“I grew up listening to Sybil and Robin S, not knowing I would one day have the honour and privilege of sharing the stage with two amazing artists - a girl from Mitchells Plain nogal.”
The 90s club divas will be backed by a 12-piece band, along with Camillo Lombard and the Top Dawg band.
Supporting acts include Salome, Vuvu Kumalo, Claire Phillips and Mady Abrahams.
