American-Palestinian star Lina to headline Mr Gay World Southern Africa


Tickets are now available for the Mr Gay World Southern Africa finale to be held at the Atterbury Theatre on 23 September 2017.

What a night it promises to be! With thirteen hunky delegates, a variety of local talent and a new international star, this is a show not to be missed.

The big news is that Lina, the American-Palestinian star fluent in five languages, will be the headline act for the evening. She made history in 2013 as the first Arab to win Israel’s biggest TV Talent show, The Voice.

She comes to South Africa having just performed to thousands at both Tel Aviv and Barcelona Prides.

Within three days of her first appearance on The Voice, she had a quarter of a million views on YouTube, a gigantic number for a country of Israel’s size. She swept to victory and was signed to the Yodan Productions label for a world-wide deal.

After the success of her first single, This Ain’t About You, which reached top 10 on both Music-Week’s Club and Pop Charts, her second single, the infectious Dance Sucker, rose even further to #4 on Music Week’s Official Club Chart.

It’s a powerful dance record that is a vibrant reflection of her multi-cultural roots. Dance Sucker is also a preview of Lina’s new album Walking on a Tightrope, produced by Grammy Award winner Jerry Wonda and new kid on the block, Tal Forer.

Lina has captivated audiences with her powerful voice and live performances which led her to being selected as the opening act for the legendary band Queen + Adam Lambert show in September 2016, performing in front of an audience of 51,000 people.

The Master of Ceremonies for the Gay World Southern Africa finale is the well known actor and singer Philip Moolman, of Blou Hond theatre-restaurant fame.

Other artists that will grace the stage include singer Jon Delinger, The Croons and Tanja Storm. More will be announced in due course.

The script for the show is written by Wim Vorster and the production is being produced by Kosie House of Theatre.
