A proudly South African artist, launching into fame with Kyknet’s talent show Maak My Famous. You will recall the absolutely breathtaking rendition of Rustenberg High’s School Choir performing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody – Bernice West was one of them!
From humble beginnings in a small town in the North-West called Swartruggens to sharing the stage with South Africa’s top artists, Bernice West is a force to be reckoned with.
