Cape Town - Jakkie Louw is so much more than a singer. He does valuable work for Cansa.

His emotive music video Een miljoen woorde made him realise that he can make a difference.

"The video made me realise that I have to help. As long as I have a mike in front of me, I will help."

Jakkie is doing 12 shows for Cansa's Relay for Life this year and will also help them in 2012.

'Army of fighters'

"I sometimes encounter cancer patients. Seeing the children breaks my heart.

"They just want to be healthy and play outside. It is for these little ones that I sing Drie Pikkewyne.

"I think it is important for us to help each other in times of need."

According to Jakkie he has a big platform to help people and he uses it.

"On the first night that I did a function for Kansa I said to them: 'Cansa is an army of fighters…  they fight for hope and life. That is why I joined this army.'"
