South African diva Mimi Coertse had the world at her feet. This autobiography is her story, as told to Ian Raper. It is the gripping, touching account of a singer who knew since early childhood that she wanted to sing; it is a story of obstacles and unstoppable passion, a tale of personal loss, fame and homesickness in a foreign country. While proudly bearing the honorary Viennese title of Kammersängerin, Mimi introduced Afrikaans songs such as O, Boereplaas and Heimwee, which became favourites with international audiences. Back in South Africa she applied her talent sourcing and indentifying young talent from disadvantaged backgrounds, training them for a life to sing.
