American soul supremos Peaches & Herb will wow Cape Town
early this May. The Sweethearts of Soul, as they are known, are set to perform
on Saturday 4 May at Grand West Casino outside Cape Town. Peaches & Herb
began its meteoric rise in 1976 when Let’s Fall in Love hit the charts.After that followed a steady succession of
hits. Reunited attained the no 1 slot worldwide in 1980 and has become known as
the duo’s signature song; but other, equally successful hits followed.
Reunited’s success was followed a year later by the dazzlingly successful album
I Pledge My Love, which has gained favour as a wedding march. The duo cemented
their success the following year when they stormed the hit parade with Bluer
than Blue. Strong & smooth Herb and the rather peachy Peaches will ignite
the stage of GrandWest with his brandy-and-cream voice and her velvet tones. Wanda
Tolson is the latest in a series of illustrious female performers to take to
the stage as Herb’s singing partner Peaches.
