On Saturday, 27 May 2023, at Grand West Casino and Entertainment World, new and old fans will experience the Soul Sisters concert, featuring diva Robin S, as well as a stunning lineup of the Cape stars.

On the bill are Lady Zamar, Andrea Fortuin, Amy Jones, Ramaine Barreiro and Vuvu Khumalo where Robin S headlines the show with a 60-minute set filled with some of her many hits. Robin S will perfom all the hits fans have come to know and love, including
Show Me Love (which was her debut single) and Luv 4 Luv, and It Must Be Love.

With a career spanning over three decades, American singer-songwriter Robin S shows no sign of slowing down as a new album is in the works with a late 2023 release date.
