"An infectious blend of South African and American holiday tunes…Dumakude is a warm and commanding host, easy to be heard and felt as she kindly shares her love of country and natural skill for entertaining…Even if she weren’t a virtuosic performer, the sheer energy and determination to bring happiness to her adoring audience would shine through. As such, she sings richly and effortlessly, showcasing a beautifully seasoned performance style. "
"So musically thrilling that if you don’t feel uplifted and ready for the holiday season, you seriously have a heart two sizes too small…Dumakude’s powerful vocals are sensational and through the roof….I actually wish there had been more of a book because I was riveted…The music permeates your soul and will have you in your chair dancing. I found I could not keep from moving as the beats are so infectious...Here are the sounds of a nation bringing forth its soul."
"A heartwarming night of music that engages both the soul and mind…All six individuals in this ensemble piece create a truly unique holiday experience that is joyous, touching, and even educational…This is by no means a splashy spectacle, but it is not intended to be. With this group, raw energy and talent is more than enough...Regardless of your religious beliefs or non-beliefs, you’ll be hard-pressed not to leave 'Sing!' without a spirit of joy and gratitude."
"A wide range of music from the South African songbook performed with gusto and positivity…An emotional and uplifting production that will have you clapping, cheering, and ululating throughout…It’s a non-stop journey through the sounds of a country brimming with story…It is packed full of effervescent happiness, as well as touching reflection. It’s a gift from one country to another…I promise you it will get under your skin, pulse in your veins, and stir your dancing feet."
