Keynote Speaking and Events
André Venter, originally from Welkom in the Free State, a skilled rugby player and like most Afrikaans men in South Africa dreamt about coming to fame as a rugby player for the Springboks, the current World Champions. Music, however, has also always been close to his heart, and from 6 years old he has been included in multiple casts and shows.
Music was the tailored suit that triumphed over the world of sports and rugby boots - something he has not regretted since ever then. Music is his calling and has provided André an excellent platform to enrich people’s lives.
As bass baritone of the vocal quartet ROMANZ he not only performed on national and international stages with the likes of Andrea Bocelli, Rod Stewart and Catherine Jenkins, but also performed at the royal wedding of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco. ROMANZ released eight albums in South Africa of which six went platinum and two reached double platinum status.
ROMANZ dissolved and André’s focus shifted after the split to his solo goals, TV presenting (kykNET JAM) and singing. Aside from his work as a presenter on television, he released his first solo album, “Die Man vir jou” (‘The man for you’), in August 2015 – a fusion of pop and adult contemporary for which he penned for the first time some of the lyrics himself. This album has since been nominated for a GHOEMA & TEMPO AWARD for the Best Contemporary Male Album & New Comer for 2016.
Topping all of this Andre’s Passion is to grow the Kingdom of God and invest in peoples lives.
