GLORIA Bosman, was born in Mofolo, but was raised in Pimville, Soweto. At no time did she consider that life would take her on a journey that would include stage and performing on as a professional performer.
In much the same way as most of her American contemporaries, she began her career singing in a church Choir.
Her first taste of the professional world came after she was approached by Felicia Marion of Joy fame to fill in for one of the singers in a production called SA Love at the Market Theatre in 1993. After this production, she was awarded a scholarship by both Nedbank and the Permanent Bank, which enabled her to study opera at the Technikon Pretoria.
From these early beginnings Gloria has amassed an impressive biography having performed and sung with the cream of South African musicians. Her stage career includes performances on various acts such as: SA Love, a musical of South African love songs produced by Christo Leach, Jubilation a gospel based musical directed by Ivor Jones, Woman in Spirit, The Lion and the Lamb, the award winning play by actor director John Kani.
