Bianca: Lead singer, Choreographer and Songwriter
I was born in Bellville in the Western Province and had my schooling at Mikro Primary School in Kuilsriver. From Grade 7, however, I received home schooling because we were full-time in the ministry. My matric certificate I received from Tswane South College, while in the same year, I did a course in drama. After attending Bible School for two years, I received a diploma in ministry. Thereafter I qualified as a beauty therapist in Potchefstroom.
Singing has always been my passion. I made my first appearance on the stage at the age of 2 years and 7 months when I sang “Deurgedra” (meaning: Sustained) at the Abracadabra Nursery School in Brackenfell. I took part in numerous singing competitions such as “Reach for the Stars”, “Gemini” and “Tehila”. At the age of 10 years I was the winner in my category when I sang “His Eye is on the Sparrow”. I soon realised that something happened inside of me whenever I sang about the Lord.
I also realised that it is the most wonderful experience to be able to depend entirely on the leading of the Holy Spirit while ministering.
One of the most outstanding years of my life was in 1996. In that year, three different people from different provinces in the country where we ministered, approached me as a ten year old girl and all three had the same message: “Take care of yourself, because one day you’ll marry a minister of the Gospel.” Today I can look back and say: “It is certainly worthwhile serving God with you whole life, because He makes good His promises.”
