Mother And Son Duo Sing Aladdin’s “A Whole New World” In Breathtaking Serenade To Each Other
South African singer Ashur Petersen asked his mother to join him for a duet singing “A Whole New World” from Disney’s Aladdin and the results were amazing.
You can really tell where this Cape Town native got his singing talent, because while his voice is beautiful, when his mother begins to sing it’s like a choir of angels just sent down their best singer to earth.
“A friend of mine messaged me to say: “This is HUGE for Cape Town” and then it hit me,” said Ashur. This video is far bigger than my mom and myself. This is for my people. The Capetonians. For my people who never gets recognized. For the artists who work their arses off with no recognition.
“If only the world knew about the talent that we breed in this land,” Ashur continued, “we’d be unstoppable. Slowly but surely, Cape Town is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. I will go anywhere in this world, stand for my people and say “I am Proudly a Capetonian… One of the most beautiful cities in the DAMN WORLD!’”
Most recently Ashur Petersen was a contestant on ‘The Voice South Africa,’ where he chose to join Francois Van Coke’s team. While he didn’t win the show, he did spread his love of music to the people of that great nation.
