Boon (Gerrit) Boonzaier grew up with music. He has been singing since he was five years old and even wrote a book, called Die Singende Seun (The Singing Son), at the age of seven. After school, he had to choose between tennis and music and decided to follow his heart. The Pretorian studied music at the Tshwane University of Technology and has been singing professionally since he was eighteen. Before 2ndLife was founded in 2010, he was lead singer of the successful group, Movie 55, who enjoyed regular airtime on various radio stations such as 947, PukFM, East Coast Radio, KovsieFM, UJFM, KFM and many more.
After a tragic event brought Liezel and her two children into his life, they decided start over together and 2ndLife – a name that represents their family – was born, with Liezel as songwriter and Boon as vocalist. Over the years, music has become their soul food, recovery path and medicine and they want to share this journey with audiences. The group’s English album was an instant hit and was very well received, locally and abroad. However, their dream has always been to convey their inspiring message in their mother tongue, which led to the creation of their first Afrikaans album. “Our aim was to write the most beautiful Afrikaans music that this country has ever heard. We are pleased with our latest release. It took us seven years to get the inspiration for this album together and we hope it will make listeners feel good and touch their hearts”, they reveal.
