Even if you don’t have your finger on the pop pulse, chances are you have heard the name PJ Pretorius.  Each year, the international talent television show The Voice SA rounds up the country’s most talented singers and brings them to our attention.  South Africa’s Season 2 contestant PJ is one such talent.

Born in Sasolburg and raised in the small town of Secunda in Mpumalanga, the multi-instrumentalist was destined for success, and within minutes of his blind audition, he had impressed the local coaches, securing his spot in the line-up.

PJ immediately became a fan favourite, ending his epic journey on the show as a sought-after Top 6 competitor. But what represented the end of the show for many, was only the beginning for PJ - the start of a flourishing and lifelong career. He's certainly got the tools to get there — serious talent, a keen ear for melody, narrative song writing and an intimate connection with his fans.

You see, PJ is not your ordinary pop star.  He is fluent in delivering contagious emotion and his talent is rooted in his DNA and his passion for what he does is obvious when he exclaims: “Music is the closest thing we as humans have to experience divinity.” He is what many would call a natural-born talent, his success written in the stars.

At the age of 16, he began playing percussion in a punk rock gospel youth band, and taught himself the guitar and piano. A year later he discovered he can also sing!

He entered the television show, X Factor in 2013, making it to the boot camp phase. While many were searching for their spot in the limelight, PJ just wanted to showcase his talent, believing that his vocal proficiency would speak for itself. The competition inspired him to push himself musically, growing not only as an artist but as an individual as well.

The singer songwriter has since gone on to perform on some of SA’s top festival stages, done various mall activations, corporate events as well as entertain and inspire youngsters at school events. Furthermore, his song writing skills were put to the test when the international charity, ‘Break the Barriers’, commissioned him to write two songs, one of which is being used for their introductory promotional video.

Ultimately, it was The Voice SA which put him on the map. Encouraged by his local community to enter the competition, PJ made his fans proud with 3 coach turns in the blind auditions. Despite Lira and Kahn's praises, PJ picked Karen Zoid as his coach.

PJ knows that the hard work and dedication is the only way to guarantee success in a competitive industry.  He worked tirelessly to produce his single “12uit10”, which was released in December 2018 and is currently playing on various radio stations nationwide.

His first album will be released in 2019 to great anticipation of his followers and loyal supporters. 

PJ feels strongly about motivating people and he wants to inspire them to become the best possible version of themselves. 

His favourite music-related quote demonstrates his passion for his trade:   “Music is the closest thing we as humans have to experience divinity”
