Kristi Sings for Jenna
One of the blessings in Jenna’s life was her incredibly close and loving relationship with her sister Kristi. Kristi is beautiful, bright, gentle, fun-loving, empathetic, strong, capable and an incredibly talented young singer.
It came as a terrible shock for Kristi when Jenna was diagnosed. She spent many months (in fact years) supporting her, doing things for Jen that Jen couldn’t do herself, and sacrificing a normal teenage life to spend as much time as she could with her soulmate. Having witnessed Jenna go through months and months of diagnostic tests, innumerable hospital visits, and the need for expensive medications, Kristi decided to use the gift of her voice to help raise funds for Jenna.
Together Kristi and Jenna wrote a song. It was aptly called “I Need More Time”. Kim Kallie became a mentor for Kristi, giving her voice training and guidance throughout the recording. Jenna wrote the lyrics from her heart and together they joined forces with well-known local South African band Good Luck to produce the song. It was launched by popular Cape Town radio station KFM and internationally on iTunes in 2013.
Although new to the stage and the world of music Kristi, only fifteen at the time, showed a maturity beyond her years . We discovered she has a soulful and powerful voice and an extremely calm performing temperament. She performed their song live for the first time at The Table of Peace and Unity on top of Table Mountain, and was one of the youngest ever performers to sing before an audience of 30 000 at the Newlands Rugby Stadium at a Bulls/Stormers final.
