But it was not just our live studio audience that enjoyed his performance. Our SMS and WhatsApp lines were flooded with numerous messages stating Carstens' live performance of his 2003 hit was the best way to start their Friday morning.

It seems that Carstens is not only a rockstar behind the mic, but he is also a talented painter. Have a look at one of his masterpieces:
