Yelanda first picked up a microphone at age three, and music has been one of her passions ever since. The young, dynamic high school student entered her first competition in 2009 “Goue Drome”. A year later she entertained 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup supporters at Kingsbeach in Port Elizabeth. In 2011 she won overall 3rd place in the WOW Star Competition and was elected Mini WOW Star winner for the day.
 
In 2010 and 2011 she represented Eastern  Cape at Rusternburg at the South African   Championships for Performing Arts. In 2011 she won 11 Medals and was chosen for Team South Africa to represent her country at the World Championships for Performing Arts, at Los Angeles, America. She wowed the judges in LA and came home with three medals!
 
Yelanda wrote her first hit song, Alleen Sonder Jou, in 2011. It was playlisted on local radio, BayFM and spent 15 weeks in the Top 5. Two other original songs (“You don’t even know it yet” and “You gotta be free”) are also becoming popular with her fans. 
 
Yelanda is currently working on material for her debut album.   
 
Not only is Yelanda passionate about music, she also loves reaching out to the community. She does regular performances at church, frail care centres, weddings, high teas, festivals and modeling competitions.
