SA’s Got Talent Top Three to perforn at Cavendish Square on Saturday 13 November at 13h00: Cape Town really proved that they have talent at the finals of SA’S GOT TALENT last week with the top three and winner all hailing from the Mother City. Cavendish Square has organised a heroes welcome for Cape Town’s top talent, and ALL of the top three will perform at the Centre Court next Saturday 13 November from 13h00.

Performing will be winner, James Bhemgee – a former street sweeper and unemployed tenor, runner-up, Constable Madalene Abrahams – a local policewoman and third placed group, Limited Drum Corps, who also come from very humble backgrounds and had to borrow drums for their show stopping performance …

Facebook fans have dubbed Bhemjee as “South Africa’s own Susan Boyle – only better” and South Africa was reduced to tears when the 45 year old former street sweeper and unemployed tenor James Bhemgee won SA’s Got Talent on SABC 2. Bhemjee won R250 000.

Bhemjee beat fellow Capetonian vocalist and policewoman, Madalene Abrahams (32) who came second, with The Limited Drum Corps coming third making it a 1,2,3  for Cape Town.  Bhemjee was first “discovered” on the streets of Cape Town by a woman who overheard him singing whilst he was working as a street sweeper.  She was so impressed that she paid for Bhemgee to have vocal lessons and today he performs with the group, the Cape Flats Tenors, but until now, was waiting for his big break.

Runner up, Constable Madalene Abrahams, sang her way into second place with a near perfect performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” By day a policewoman, the transformation tonight into glamorous diva left the audience speechless.

The three judges had no say in last week’s grand finale and it was purely based on public votes. But they did have a lot to say about Bhemjee’s win: “You are so humble but blessed with a stunning talent” said Ian von Memerty; “You are natural and proved there is no need to show off” commented Randall Abrahams; with Shado Twala telling him that he could “perform anywhere in the world.” Shado Twala also added that “Cape Town’s proved that they’ve REALLY got talent!”
