Amanda Black is without a doubt one of the most successful musicians in South Africa, we first met the 24-year-old when she was a contestant on Idols and her career has been on an upward trajectory since her appearance on the show.
In a recent interview with Move magazine, the starlet opened up about why she believes not winning Idols was a blessing, “I gave it my all and it seems it wasn’t enough. With all that being said, I am thankful for the opportunity the show gave me.”
She then went on to say that she was glad that she was eliminated and even though she was really disappointed, it obviously was not the end of her singing journey,“if I had won Idols, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It was a huge blessing in disguise for me not to win the competition. Honestly, if you take a look at some of the Idols winners, they are far from reaching the peak of their careers, while some have faded,” she said.
