We were young, early 20’s forging rebellious careers with music made in bedrooms and garages. We had no idea what we were doing and Gloria was already a jazz singer. pic.twitter.com/4ydko7fQ2y

Sad to learn about the passing of #GloriaBosman. Got to know her thru @siphohotstix, when I wanted to featured young unknown talent on #FeliciaShow,
Sipho sent me Gloria who was studying at Pretoria Tech. She blew us away. Gloria became a regular on my show with @LalombaMusic https://t.co/zvMCdk4mCY pic.twitter.com/CihcHRfmOl
