Refentse Morkae’s musical career has skyrocketed since becoming an overnight online sensation in 2015. In less than a year after it’s release, his debut album, “My haart bly in ‘n taal”, shot to double platinum status- a feat rarely achieved by a first album; making him the top Afrikaans seller in South Africa for 2016 and filling his schedule with as many as 23 performances each month.
Refentse’s talent first came under the spotlight when Cecilia Kruger Marchionna, a resident from his home town, recorded cell phone videos of him with guitar in hand – performing his renditions of Laurika Rauch’s “Lisa se Klavier”, Bok van Blerk’s “De la Rey” and Ed Sheraan’s “Thinking out loud”- and uploaded them to social media, where they spread like wildfire.
Barely 3 weeks later, at KKNK in Oudtshoorn, he caught the eye of singer, Karen Zoid, also his favourite artist, who saw him captivating crowds during a street performance. Later that same evening, he was introduced to various prominent South African artists by the KKNK organisers and invited by Karen Zoid to share the stage with her following the following day. 24 hours and one stunned audience later, Refentse was offered a recording contract at Sony Music Entertainment’s Afrikaans label Select Musiek, and the rest is history!
Lady Antebellum formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. The group is composed of Hilary Scott (lead vocals), Charles Kelley (lead, background vocals and guitar) and Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano and mandolin). With more than 18 million album sales worldwide, seven-time GRAMMY award winning group Lady Antebellum has earned six PLATINUM singles, nine chart topping hits, countless other awards including Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards, while also taking home ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row.
Honing in on the melodious foundation that first brought the multi-PLATINUM trio together, Lady Antebellum returns to radio airwaves with “You Look Good,” while concurrently announcing it as the debut single off their sixth studio album HEART BREAK as well as s 2017 world tour.
