One of the most prominent if not biggest Jazz and Soul festival in Gauteng, Tshwane All White Jazz and Soul Festival will be held on December 16th to celebrate a decade in the showbiz. In celebrating 10 years of hosting some of the biggest soul and jazz festivals in Gauteng, the organizers of the “All white’s” as known by legions of fans will be donating food parcels, clothing and stationary to 10 children homes in Tshwane North.
The homes that will benefit from this donation will be those housing children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. This forms part of the tradition that the All Whites have been following for the past 9 years where homes such as Ya Bana Children’s home in Mabopane have been receiving donations annually after every Jazz and Soul festival hosted by Sister T Promotions.
Founded by philanthropist/businesswoman, Mrs. Tiny “Sister T” Mashilwane of Sister T Promotions, the Tshwane All White Jazz and Soul Festival has featured some of the biggest Jazz and Soul musicians/ bands from all walks of life. Talented musicians such as USA based RNB singer, Kenny Lattimore, Zimbabwean Jazz legend Oliver Mtukudzi, homegrown talent such as Tshepo Tshola, Ringo Mafikizolo and the late Jabu Khanyile just to name a few have formed part of the entertainment in prior years.
The All Whites were for a period of five years hosted at the Oberon Resort, Hartebeespoort and the North West Province. However due to a growing number of support and a need for a bigger venue they would later find home at Gold Rush Morula, formerly knowns as Morula Sun situated in Mabopane, Tshwane North. In celebration of a decade in the entertainment industry, All White fans will be treated to spectacular performances from new and seasoned artists.
This prestigious event is a fusion of social cohesion and entertainment aligned to the 16 Days of Activism which is commemorated from 25 November to 11 December. 2017 will be a year of significant relevance as the organizers seek to integrate their previous experience and future endeavors to this specific event. The Tshwane All White Jazz and Soul Festival have stood the test of time and you’re encouraged to come be part of this historic occasion.
