Afro-soul singer Ndoh Dlamini will be making sweet music with legendary American soul-rock singer Michael Bolton.
The 35-year-old singer, actress and voice trainer was chosen by Bolton, to record a cover version of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing.”
Ndoh, whose real name is Nomfundo Dlamini-Sambo, was one of two artists Bolton chose from a list given to him by her record label Sony
The song is on its way to the US for final mixing and it will be included on Bolton’s next album after Ndoh recorded the vocals in Joburg.
“I am one of the two SA artists who will have a song with him. His part was already recorded when I did mine.I hope to meet him after the final mixing is done,” she said.
Ndoh has worked as a backing vocalist for some of Mzansi’s best musicians, including Ringo Madlingozi, Madala Kunene and the late Jabu Khanyile
She performed at the ANC centenary celebrations last year where she sang Brenda Fassie’s Black President, which she says was her breakthrough performance,
“It was amazing how I performed the main song next to legends and everyone was happy with it,” she told SunBuzz.
It isn’t the first time she’s sung Brenda’s songs, as she was part of veteran actor Jerry Mofokeng’s Mabrrr The Musical at the Macufe Festival in 2010.
She played the late singer Lebo Mathosa in the musical and was also cast in Hugh Masekela and James Ngcobo’s Songs of Migration in 2011.
Ndoh’s debut album, Sekusile, earned her a Metro FM Music Award nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz at this year’s awards ceremony held in February.
