Karin Kortjé has a new single out, called “Live out Loud”, and it is the first song from the pen of the former SA Idols winner. This song follows on the very successful single “Baby come to Me” that was a radio hit for Karin. But while “Baby come to Me” is a nice upbeat tune, “Live out Loud” is more like an anthem – with a definite message of hope to everybody finding him or herself in a tough situation.

Those struggling with the stark reality of dealing with Covid-19 and the lockdown would definitely find comfort in the lyrics that are so apt for our world that has irrevocably been transformed by the deadly virus.

The inspiration behind the song was Karin’s personal journey and the challenges she faced in her life, but she is cognisant of the fact that every human being faces different challenges, so the song speaks to overcoming life’s challenges in general.

The song is also giving hope to people battling to deal with the current Lockdown.

Karin does all the vocals on the song, but she has a surprise backing vocalist in her baby boy Joshua (5), who will melt hearts with his cute, sweet voice.

The song will be available on all digital platforms such as Apple Music, Google Play Music, Simfy Africa, Deezer and Tidal on 21 May 2020.
