Solo artist, Feo Charles' big voice started out small, as she'd hum herself to sleep at a young age. The humming led to concerts at kindergarten and Sunday school performances, as well as putting on shows for family members and friends, covering songs by her favourite artist, Whitney Houston. Her purpose was clear, her purpose in life is her voice, a purpose that would never leave her regardless of what was ahead. And there was so much ahead.
Young Feo ventured on to entering competitions, some unsuccessful and others very successful. In 2003, the artist won a voice search hosted at The Westgate Mall, her presence and victory sparked the interest of a record company. Feo went on to record an album of cover versions of songs by her favourite artists. A less successful competition, was her participation in the show Idols, where the 16 year old made it through the judges round. Feo says: 'Even though I wasn't successful, it was a great experience.'
Entering competitions and singing couldn't hide the dark side the artist was facing at the time. A drug addiction grabbed hold of her, starting at the tender age of thirteen. Thirteen year old Feo Charles ended up on the streets, living with strangers and would fight for her sanity by continuing to enter shows and gigs with friends and fellow industry professionals. 'I should have been dead.' She said. The journey that seemed to be a dark tunnel found light when the artist gave birth to her first son four years later, not too long after, Feo had her second second. It may have proven difficult but the singer says, having her kids changed her life. With her beautiful sons, a supportive family and a mother who only saw the best in her, Feo overcame every obstacle. In 2018, the singer entered another competition, Karaoke soos 'n Ster, hosted by the Newspaper The Tygerburger. She
recalls it being a great yet a nail-biting moment, but with shattered nerves and mixed emotions, the singer won the competition, giving her an opportunity to perform at The Grand Jol, which took place at the GrandWest. Feo got to perform with some of Cape Towns well-known artists Amy Jones, Jarred Ricketts and Robin Pieters. Smiling from ear to ear as she goes back to the night she describes as, epic.
Whether she'd ever be able to make her own music crossed her mind, however someone was always watching. The individual believed and believes just as everyone else she had ever met, that Feo was made for great things. He invested his time, invested in her talent and helped her find the right people to help continue her journey. They found the help they were looking for, and her response to the help she found: 'Thank God for Saul City.' The singer said. Saul City, a husband and wife songwriting and production team, took to the vibrant soul of Feo Charles instantly, and share in the excitement of her first release Gone. 'Feo is a light, her purpose is engraved on her life, her pain and joy and overcoming ever-present in her vocals, everything she sings she feels. We know that what she has to give is what so many people need to hear, her sound may make people move, but Feo has a story. And we're are so blessed to be a part of it.' Saul City
