It has always been one of my dreams to record an album with my favourite and loved Christmas songs. I am so happy that it is happening now and so proud that I can present this unique album to my loyal and future fans.
Thanks to the Lord for blessing me with my voice so I can share my gift with you. Thanks to my dear friends - my colleagues Emo Adams, Broers, Soweto Gospel Choir and Bala Brothers for sharing their talent, spirit and wonderful voices with me on this album.
Elke oomblik wat ek die afgelope maande in die ateljee deurgebring het sal altyd vir my spesiaal wees. Dankie vir die span rondom my, my dierbare vriende en hulle geloof in my om hierdie droom te verwesenlik.
I am so excited to share a South African Christmas with you - a Christmas in my heart, my soul and that of my beautiful country.
Thanks for sharing "Christmas in South Africa"!

Her biggest hit to date has been "Kaapse Draai" in 2003. Nádine has won two platinum and four gold record acknowledgements. Today the popular singer has sold over 500 000 cd's in English and Afrikaans and with over 120 shows a year both locally and abroad she has established herself as one of the most successful South African popstars.
In 2008 her musical career skyrocketed. Nádine travelled to Europe, signing with Belgian management company King Entertainment and recording a new album with Swedish top producer Nick Manic. During the summer of 2009 she launched the first part of her European adventure with some accomplished showcases. In autumn she traveled to New Zealand for a successful concert tour.
Early 2010 Nádine won the prestigious World Peace Song Festival, following the likes of superstars like Robbie Williams and Céline Dion with the smashing hit song "This time I know it's for real".
