Cape Town – A Cape Town man has gone from being a jail bird to singing for the Queen of the Netherlands in a very short space of time.

Die Volksblad reported that Larry Joe referred to his new life as a free man as: "Every day is Christmas".

Joe was released on parole in December 2010 after serving half of his sentence for burglary and theft. He was released early due to good behaviour.
