Singers bring their Loverz Kwarrel to stage

first_imgZurayda and Zyboedien Abrahams, known as Thee A2, will be staging their show, Loverz Kwarrel, at the Joseph Stone Auditorium on Sunday December 29. Husband and wife duo, Zyboedien and Zurayda Abrahams, known as Thee A2, will be lighting up the stage with their show, Loverz Kwarrel, at the Joseph Stone Auditorium on Sunday December 29. The two have been singing together for 10 years, and although they have been supporting actsat other artists’ shows, this performance will be their first as the headline act. “The show has been coming on for a long time. Now is the right time,” Mr Abrahams said.Before they met, both were singers in their own right. Mr Abrahams performed with his father’s group, The A4, and Ms Abrahams did solo performances. Not long after they met, their shared passion for singing and performing, eventually led them to start singing together.Mr Abrahams’ musical journey started with The A4, but later he decided to offer music therapy at seniors’ homes. This, he said, was his great love. He still does music therapy at Cape Peninsula Organisation for the Aged (CPOA) homes in Bonteheuwel, Heideveld, Lotus Riverand Silvertown. This he doesconsistently, as he does not believe music therapy should be a once-off thing.“Many of our seniors have difficulty with walking, and cannot really go out, that is why we go to them. We do it every day, it’s not just a temporary thing. “We do it for the love of it. I would like to thank Hubert Paulse fromthe CPOA for giving me this opportunity,” Mr Abrahams said.Mr Abrahams is a builder by profession, and Ms Abrahams is a teacher.When she is not teaching or on stage, Ms Abrahams is also the choir master at Timour Hall Primary School in Plumstead, where she teaches.“Zyboedien works with recycled teenagers and I work with teenagers. We love music so much, and we just want to spread the love,” Ms Abrahams said.The couple are originally from Mitchell’s Plain, but now live in Plumstead. They don’t want to give away too much about what the show is about, only hinting that the title of the show might be a bit misleading. “The show will focus on how a couple can disagree, but not in an aggressive way. It’s about how todo things together, in a loving way, even if you disagree,” Ms Abrahams said.Other artists that will join them on the evening, include Zale Titus and Osman Abrahams, known as Mr A1, among others.Tickets to the show, Loverz Kwarrel, at the Joseph Stone Auditorium, on Sunday December 29, at 2.30pm, are R100 each.

After the Impact Made Last Season, Wayne Rooney Looks to Guide D.C. United Further in 2019

first_img“We saw what Wayne is – a high quality, elite soccer player. He didn’t lose possession, made some key passes and got on the end of a few balls in the box. This is what he’s going to do for us,” said D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen to the media after that win. D.C. United was at the bottom of the MLS standings heading into the summer. Then by late June, news broke that the team acquired a major international superstar on the heels of the first true D.C. United home game of the season. Three nights later, Rooney had his first multi-goal game with two in a 4-1 win over the Portland Timbers. His scoring would become a regularity down the stretch. Rooney scored eight goals in D.C. United’s final seven games. In all, Rooney finished his first season with the black and red with 12 goals and seven assists. Rooney scored his first goal with D.C. United in his fourth game, a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids. A few weeks later, Rooney made the play of the year chasing the ball down after a clear, stealing it, and launching a perfect pass to Luciano Acosta in the final seconds of stoppage time. Acosta finished it and D.C. United stole a victory from the jaws of a draw. Three important standings points that could’ve been just one. Top photo: Geoff Burke/USA Today Sports Wayne Rooney has had success in his international soccer career. Now he’s the face of soccer in our nation’s capital. From the moment fans greeted Rooney when he landed at Dulles Airport to early-November’s penalty kicks contest in the Knockout Round of the MLS Playoffs, it was a memorable first season for Rooney in the MLS. “It was strange, we went from losing the game basically to winning in the span of five seconds. It’s great, they’re the best games of football to win,” added Rooney. Our weeklong D.C. United preview series continues Wednesday as we look back on how the black and red did during the 2019 preseason. D.C. United entered that inaugural home game with just two wins. That first game at Audi Field was the start of something special. From July 14 through the end of the season, the club finished with a 12-4-4 record to earn a home game in the Knockout Round of the MLS Playoffs. “He made a hell of a play and it showed what he’s about. I think we’ll see that more and more from him here. He’s a selfless winner and has come here to prove himself, even though he doesn’t need to. He’s here to raise level of the group, including myself. And today, that play is indicative of who he is,” said Olsen after the game. D.C. United’s magical season came to an end on Nov. 1 in a close, hard-fought defeat to the Columbus Crew that ended in penalty kicks. That round of PK’s could’ve gone either way but the defeat will make Rooney and company hungry for an even better 2019. Now that Rooney is entering his first full season with the club, he has the experience from 2018 under his belt and will look to use that home stretch success as fuel. There won’t be any schedule challenges for D.C. United of a road heavy first half. In fact, D.C. United is opening the new season at home against the defending champions, Atlanta United FC. Please follow and like us: On July 14 just after the second half began, Rooney took the Audi Field pitch for the first time as an official member of the black and red. He later assisted on Paul Arriola’s second goal of the game in the 80th minute to seal the 3-1 win. D.C. United entered the 2018 season with a strange schedule. With Audi Field not 100% ready, the team had to open with a majority of their games on the road. The few times they were home featured a game at Maryland Soccer Plex and the US Naval Academy. last_img read more
