Mzansi’s own Natalie Chapman is heading towards her final performance after reaching thousands of people and travelled 1000’s of kilometres with her message of hope through music. Her final performance will take place at Marks Park in Johannesburg on 27 April.
Chapman is a singer, songwriter and LeadSA hero. Since kicking off her #90Days journey in April, Natalie has performed 143 shows so far in just 72 days across 80 different towns. This forms part of her mission to do 180 shows in just 90 days.
She has already travelled over 12 500kms of the estimated 18 000kms around Southern Africa. She is currently in Mpumalanga and will do her final shows in the rest of Gauteng over the next 18 days.
The tour will culminate in a fantastic event at Marks Park on Freedom Day where some of the music industry’s finest artists will show their support on stage.
Her blend of storytelling and incredible original folk and country music has impacted survivors and communities on the ground level one person at a time. Not only does she appeal to survivors to speak out and break the silence but she also encourages everyday South Africans to get involved and become a part of the solution to an epidemic of violence and abuse that has swept over our country.
On what is thought to be the first mission of its kind, this feisty and extremely passionate musician has succeeded in spreading her message of hope and awareness to all corners of South Africa plus a visit to Lesotho.
