Cape Town – South African singer, Jacques Terre’Blanche, is trying his hand at Afrikaans music for the first time.

Jacques is perhaps best known as a finalist on the second season of the M-Net reality television competition Idols, in 2003.

Now the 33-year-old is stepping into the Afrikaans market for the first time.

After the death of his father, Ettienne, last year Jacques decided to record his dad’s favourite song, Droomvrou.
