South African opera star PRETTY YENDE performed on The Wendy Williams Show where she received a standing ovation!
She is currently starring in Barber of Seville at the Metropolitan Opera and released her debut album “A Journey.”
Pretty Yende is a sensational young South African soprano whose career has risen to the top of the opera world with unparalleled speed within the past few years. Born in 1985 in the small town of Piet Retief, about two hundred miles from Johannesburg, Yende’s journey to become one of the world’s most sought-after singers is like a modern fairy-tale. She was initially introduced to singing in a manner familiar to many South Africans - in her church choir. Then at the age of sixteen, she heard the Flower Duet from Lakmé on a British Airways television advertisement, and was so enraptured by its beauty that she determined to find out what it was. On learning that it was opera, she decided at that moment to abandon her plans to become an accountant, and train to become an opera singer instead. Pretty Yende’s debut album A Journey is available now. She is currently starring in The Barber of Seville at the Metropolitan Opera. She will appear in Romeo and Juliet in March.
