The 22-year-old Denice Marais from Heidelberg in the Southern Cape,is currently the South Africa Karaoke Champion and will represent South Africa at the annual Karaoke World Championship Finals in Helsinki, Finland between 14-18 November 2017, if funding becomes available.
From very humble beginnings Denice has never travelled the world. When she was younger she would use her school holidays to milk cows and contribute to her family`s income. She now produces handmade photo frames which are distributed and sold across the province.
South Africa is the closets it has been in 11 years to competing in the Karaoke World Championships. The last time South Africa competed was in 2006, when Cape Town karaoke David September nabbed second price.
Denice hope the opportunity will materialise and is very excited about it.
