This is my little sister @nombulelo_yende, she’s a third born to our family. I’m so proud of her. Last night she won her first international voice competition in Vendome 🇫🇷 just outside Paris. Vincenzo Bellini Bel Canto Competition. She got the main prize, a special prize as well as the audience prize. Here’s a clip from her performance in the finals earlier this year at her first international competition as a finalist.
