With a generation of musical influence, a charmingly sexy voice and a body that makes male and female audiences alike go gaga, it’s no wonder Michael Ferguson is set to becoming South Africa’s biggest musical bomb shell both on and off stage.
As a student of the prestigious Pretoria Boys High School, Michael had some of the country’s best music teachers available. During his high school career, he achieved his honours in Music – Classical Guitar, and formed part of the elite school choir. It was also here that Michael received an invite to join the University of Pretoria Youth Choir who later went on to compete in Bremen, Germany, in the 2006 Choir Olympics. The choir placed second overall amongst the world’s finest choirs. Being part of the choir for so many years had an incredible impact on Michael’s vocal abilities.
Before entering the world of Solo Artist, Michael and his then band, Allegra Street Theme, won the South African leg of the Global Battle of the Bands in November 2007. The Band flew to London to compete in the world finals and scored highly amongst the many talented musicians that featured from all over the world.
Having performed exclusive contracts, such as his 3 month stint at Sun City Resort in 2008, Michael had the privilege of being part of Kelly Rowland’s tour to SA as her backing guitarist during her concert in the Sun City Superbowl. An experience that will never be forgotten! During this time, one of Michaels songs co-written with an ex band member, titled “Maybe”, reached No. 1 on the charts on Highveld Stereo’s Homebrew channel.
Working alongside his father and Manager (Fergie), a member of the legendary group Ballyhoo, this B-Com Business graduate is pursuing his solo career with vigour. Michael has boosted his performance onto an elite platform for many Corporate Events & Global festivals (in both Southern and Northern Africa).
It has been 3 months since Michael released his increasingly popular TRACK ‘K.I.S.S.I.N.G’. His next track & Video “Rock n’ Roll Souljah” has just been released to Radio & TV …following this, will be the release of his long awaited Album “Rock ‘n Roll Souljah” on 31st March 2013 & the Album Launch will take place on the 9th May 2013.
