Legendary American jazz and R&B singer, Randy Crawford will perform her last show in South Africa at Time Square’s Sun Arena next month. Tickets to the one-night-only concert are selling fast at Computicket and fans are encouraged to book soon to avoid missing out on Crawford’s last show in South Africa.
“We are honoured to host the iconic Randy Crawford for her final show on South African soil in October. The concert promises to be a fantastic celebration of a brilliant music career,” says Brett Hoppé, General Manager at Time Square South Africa.
Crawford first made her name in mid 1970s in New York where she sang with jazzmen George Benson and Cannonball Adderley. She signed with Columbia Records and released her first single, “Knock On Wood” and “If You Say The Word” in 1972. She went on to lead R&B veterans the Crusaders on the transatlantic hit “Street Life” (1979) and was named the ‘Most Outstanding Performer’ at the Tokyo Music Festival.
Her follow–up solo efforts included “One Day I’ll Fly Away” (1980) and “You Might Need Somebody” (1981), which became soul standards. The album, Secret Combination (1981) stayed on the UK Albums Chart for sixty weeks. She has sung with Bootsy Collins, Johnny Bristol, Quincy Jones, Al Jarreau, Rick Springfield, Steve Hackett and Joe Sample among others.
