Good Morning Angels: Supporting a talented 16-year-old to pursue his dream

Sixteen-year-old Thabang's dream is to become the next singing sensation in South Africa. Good Morning Angels decided to help him achieve that.

Jacaranda FM

BACKGROUND: Sixteen-year-old Thabang has never met his parents. In fact, he doesn’t know anything about them or his blood-relatives.

He grew up in a foster home from birth until the age of 15, and has been a resident of the Jakaranda Children’s Home since late last year. From a very early age, it was quite clear that this boy was born gifted and talented on many levels. He has been a top athlete for most of his schooling years - competing in track events at national level multiple times. 

He’s a hard worker who loves drama and excels in acting, but what he wants most in life is to sing. Thabang loves to sing Afrikaans songs like Bobby van Jaarsveld's hit, 'Net Vir Jou'.

On Wednesday, Good Morning Angels will surprise Thabang with an early pick-up at the Children’s Home, for a surprise visit to the Jacaranda FM Studio to meet Martin Bester and the team - and there’s more...

ORIGINAL REQUEST: 

Liewe Good Morning Angels

Thabang, is ’n 16-jarige student aan die Jakaranda kinderhuis is in 2003 gebore.

Hy is in 2003 gebore en het nooit sy ouers ontmoet of geken nie. Hy het vir 14 jaar lank by ’n Safe House in pleegsorg gewoon. 

Dis hier waar hy sy passie vir musiek ontdek het en wil bitter graag meer as enige iets anders hierdie droom van hom nastreef. Hy is ook baie goed in sport en atletiek om meer presies te wees, hy is al vir 11 jaar lank lid van die ASSA atletiek span!

Thabang het my laasjaar tydens die jaarlikse LIGGIEFEES van die Kinderhuis genader en gevra of ek hom kan help met hierdie droom van hom. Hy kort afronding en mentorskap en ek het 'n sangskool genader met hierdie versoek. Dit gaan egter 'n R1000 per maand vir hierdie lesse beloop om sodoende presies te bewerkstellig waar hy leiding nodig gaan hê.

Kan julle asseblief ons in hierdie verband moontlik help?

Vriendelike Groete,

Stefan Botha
