Uthando Benefit Concert in Video
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Performers on the bill included the Hout Bay Music Project (whose young talented singer always has everyone in tears with her rendition of Adele’s Someone Like You), the delightful and surprisingly limber Neighbourhood Old Age Homes (NOAH), Jikeleza Dance Project, Dance For All and the fleet-footed Happy Feet Gumboot Dancers.
This celebration of township excellence was a fundraiser for those who performed, and had attendees singing its praises:
“I can't think of anything I'd rather have done to commemorate Youth Day, or any other day, than to have enjoyed such a wonderfully exuberant concert! Congratulations to everyone involved in the organisation and to all the talented artists on an exceptional show. I look forward to next year's concert,” said Penny Grimbeek.
