I must admit that when I first looked at the CD, I was wondering, who is she? Is she that Nadine from one of those now defunct pop groups in the UK… or was it the Nadine in Girls Aloud? Doesn’t matter.
I popped the CD into the player and listened. Very guitar-based pop rock… think a slightly girlier version of Kelly Clarkson.
Then the surprises started. I was reading her profile and I found out that she is from Johannesburg in South Africa. Wow. I must say that this is the first time I’m hearing something so commercially radio friendly music from South Africa!
I have such a soft spot for South Africa. I was there back in May/June 2002 and I’m so amazed by the place. It remains one of my favourite holiday destinations in the world.
Anyway, Nadine is no rookie; she has been in the music business for 15 years and counting. She has found success in her hometown of South Africa and Europe as well. Wow.
