Woorde is the culmination of dedication and hard work to wrap up the year with the ten track album. The self-proclaimed “shy and quiet” Afrikaans superstar enthuses: “It’s been a life-long dream of mine to release my own music and now I can finally look forward to this dream becoming a reality with my own album being available for people to hear and hopefully be inspired by with the various musical offerings I have opted to showcase on this album.”
“Music helped me overcome my speech impediment and without music, there would be no Jodi Jantjies. Music helped me get through so many obstacles in life and now I have emerged as a confident, story teller through my music,” explain Jodi. Singing in both Afrikaans and English, Jodi’s talent as a writer and singer has already had many audiences in raptures during performances as part of the ATKV-Crescendo team, from Aardklop to Suidoosterfees and the #OnseFees.

She approached her idol, singer and songwriter Karen Zoid, to duet with her on the album’s lead single, “Gee My Die Woorde” – which dropped on digital platforms on Friday October 22. “Working with Karen was such a wonderful learning experience and a complete dream come true for me. She is an icon and I learnt so much from her while in the studio and even while shooting the music video. Growing up I always wanted to work with her and I was so honoured that she made my dream a reality,” explains Jodi.

The Jodi Jantjies story –how it began
On March 4, 2016 during auditions at Cedar Secondary School in Mitchells Plain, a very shy and quiet 16-year-old girl, sang an original song that she had written. in front of the ATKV-Crescendo panel. The four judges Hemel Besem, Mynie Grové, Danie du Toit and Anna Davel were wowed. They gave her an immediate and definite “yes”. That is the story of Jodi Jantjies’ journey with ATKV-Crescendo. Jodi sings in Afrikaans and English and is comfortable with both languages but is keen to focus and develop her Afrikaans heritage and also to continue writing her own material. She is giving fans to see her shine as a solo artist and enjoy her “deep and soulful music and arrangements with influences of jazz, soul, alternative and some Pentecostal musical vibes in the mix.”
