1986 Press Release:-

"Passion" is Talk of the Town

A band known as "Passion" has, in recent months, been entertaining at the cool night spot Talk of the Town. I caught their act at the niterie and also at a Benefit concert at the Civic Centre. Petra is the band's lovely lead vocalist and is the only singer I know who does Dionne Warwick standards and sounds better than Dionne herself.

When she breaks into something by Diana Ross, your mind is immediately transported into the realms of the petite American singer, then again, she sounds like Barbra Streisand. She is a singer in many moods, one whom we are still going to hear alot about. Her full name is Petra Martine, of German extraction born in Randburg. After being discovered by an agent, she went on to audition for the big Johannesburg and international impressario, Don Hughes. She had arrived. Her first stint was on the Durban hotel circuit, the Wild Coast Sun, other 5 - star venues and as a solo cabaret performer in South West Africa, Namibia.

She then went on to perform on the "Astor," the luxury Safmarine liner, sailing between Cape Town and Southampton, UK. Petra's plans include continuing to entertain audiences in top - class venues around the world. Her kind of voice is rarely heard in the world of contemporary, pop, ballad music.
