Tihesha Norman.

The Rainbow Academy Showcase, featuring a host of upcoming performers, takes place at the Galloway Theatre in the V&A Waterfront from today, Wednesday May 22 to Saturday May 25. The showcase will not only display the students’ vocal abilities through performance, artistry and song, but will also be a fund-raiser for the academy. One of the students performing is Tihesha Norman from Manenberg who says music is her life. “I love it. It has always been a part of me. Music connects people and people can relate to it. It speaks to you in a way that nothing else does.” Tickets for the shows, which start at 8pm, are R100 to R180. Book through Tixsa or call the academy at 021 426 4759 for details.
