CD REVIEW! Judith Sephuma - I Am A Living Testimony

The sultry sound of multi award winning songstress, jazz and Afro pop queen Judith Sephuma resonates with many. She arrived in the music industry with her popular song A cry, A smile, A dance, a single from her debut album with the same title and went on to be one of the most popular and loved jazz artists in the country. Judith Sephuma has released her much anticipated fourth studio album titled “I Am A Living Testimony”, it is a 10 track album featuring an array soulful tracks. Some of the songs are in Sepedi or Zulu and although many may not fully understand some of the words the melody still speaks to the soul. Most songs are inspired by love, songs like “Write me a letter” while others are a testimony of her faith such as “I am a living testimony” and some are just simply songs about the ups and downs of life. Although not as popular and successful as her first album which put her on the map as one of the top female musicians in the country, diehard fans of the songbird will definitely appreciate the effort put into the album.
