In an arrangement written especially for Amira, the performance begins with the majestic Ennio Morricone composition ‘The River’ from the soundtrack to the movie ‘The Mission’. This is then followed by Amira’s rendition of Nella Fantasia which is based on the haunting melody known as ‘Gabriel’s Oboe’ from the same movie.
Honoured by the personal arrangement written for her and humbled by the standing ovation from an audience of 7 500 people, this performance remains one of Amira’s favourites.
Following her highly successful performances at the ‘Classics is Groot’ concerts held earlier in the year, Amira was invited back to the country to perform as a guest artiste at the eleven ‘Afrikaans is Groot’ concerts held during November 2016.
During the show, Amira sang a brief duet with Corlea Botha, together with other artists, during a rendition of a sacred piece known as ‘Die Onse Vader’ (The Lord’s Prayer) and she also joined the whole group in the Finalé. Nella Fantasia was the only solo number performed.
