Jewels For Life .................. 2008 PUBLISHAMERICA
Jewels for Life: aPoetic Testimonialsa is a collection of soul-awakening poems that were created during what I call some of the darkest hours of my life. The times when I felt alone, confused, unbalanced and ready to give up on life. But I knew that I could not. Instead of reflecting on the challenging situations of life, which can be overwhelming, I began to tap into the positive energy buried within myself by praying, meditating and believing that I was worthy to receive all the goodness that life has to offer. Through the art of poetry, healing and growth began to take place, and I realized that there was more to this life than I had experienced. I want to share with you the jewels that I have learned in this creative collection of poetry in the hopes that you will be inspired and begin to see life from a different prospective. Be blessed.

Hierdie album was ook die beste verkoper van 'n Engels/Afrikaanse solo-album deur 'n vroulike kunstenaar in die geskiedenis van die Suid-Afrikaanse musiekwese. Die album het die derde posisie bereik op die amptelike SA Top 20 van albumverkope, met slegs Celine Dion en Titanic wat op daardie tydstip meer verkope gehad het.

***** KAREN ZOID ***** by vetseun http://www.karenzoid.co.za VIR DIE EERSTE KEER IN ENGELAND *FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ENGLAND * 14 SEPTEMBER 2002 Facts about Karen's career:Born in Brussels in 1978, as the daughter of a South African diplomat, Karen grew up in Belgium and JHB with the Beatles, The Beach Boys and Creedence Clearwater Revival. She was upset when she received her first guitar on her tenth birthday, as she was expecting a BMX.
Zoid's debut solo album, "POLES APART", was released by EMI in June 2001 - a personal, eclectic journey as a songwriter and guitarist. Delving into issues like love, philosophy, and day-to-day aspects such as waitress stress, the sound is indigenous with an aesthetically South African feel. Singing in English and Afrikaans with Zulu on a delightful bonus track, she arrived as a distinctively new sound on the music scene, with an acoustic, intellectual and sometimes satirical approach.The album immediately made a huge impact. In the authoritative SA Rock Digest (at www.sarockdigest.com) she shot into the charts. "Poles Apart" spent many weeks at number 1 and is currently still on the best SA album chart. Both "Set of Wheels" and "Engel" went to number 1 on the best song chart, whilst "Afrikaners Is Plesierig" reached number 4. The album has since been play listed on most Radio stations.

She has been featured with television performances and interviews on all TV stations, including the programmes Kwela, JIP, Smelt, Geraas, Dube, Craze, QTV and Mamela week.
Her first music video, "Afrikaners Is Plesierig", made a huge impact on TV, was shown at Aardklop and has been entered for a major international film fesitval in Finland. With a cast of more than 20 actors and shot on location on a cowboy ghost town set, this video is one of the best ever local music videos. The tv progamme JIP flighted an insert on the making of the music video. Karen Zoid was nominated for five awards in the "Geraas" music awards 2001 - Best Live Artist - Best Rock Album- Best New Artist- Best Songwriter- Best ArrangerShe won in the categories Best New Artist and Best Rock Album.Since the release of Poles Apart in mid-2001 her songs have been included on several rock and alternative complilation cds.
