EAST London singer Michael Kruger released his 30th album recently.
Michael de Angelo, as he is affectionately known, started his music career in the early 90s and sings Afrikaans, Gospel, Country and Pop music.
His latest offering is a gospel album titled Yes, I know, which will launch later this month at the East London SPCA.
Kruger said he knows that he belongs to God and that his album will be a success, which is why he gave it a befitting title.
SPCA will have an open day on November 26, where they will have a Christmas market, clothing, jewellery, food and drinks stalls.
“This year we have added an extra. There will be a car boot sale, where people pack what they do not need at home in their boot. Pay R50, park your car and sell your stuff. You know, one man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure,” SPCA fundraising team member Margaret Pautz said.
Kruger will be entertaining the crowd with a hip hop group, known as the Blaq Verse. Originally from East London, Kruger moved to Johannesburg 17 years ago and he has been in the music industry ever since.
He has worked with many big names in the industry like Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels, Kurt Darren, Nonie Jackson, and Ray Dylan to name just a few.
He only returned to East London in March because his parents, who lived in Greenfields passed away recently, both from cancer.
Now the Gonubie resident said he plans to release a second album, an Afrikaans album after the gospel offering.
“For me, gospel music allows me to bring hope to people. It is the best way to preach the word of God. I love doing that.”
He said he has a dream for East London: “If we could have festivals, where people can just relax, enjoy great company, hold hands and just have a great time. I wish that could be arranged for our city.”
