Paxton Fielies, the young 17 year old from Bishops Lavis in Cape Town, captured the hearts of Idols viewers across South Africa.
This determined young songstress exceeded fans expectations, when she went on to grasp the title, hailing her as South Africa’s Youngest Winner of Idols South Africa. However, don’t try box this sassy young businesswoman into your general “She will fade away when the next winner comes along” sentiment.
Her fierce passion for her music and craft was shown when she insisted on writing her own album. She has surrounded herself with top musicians in the industry to formulate a tight music team, to assist in getting her music across to the commercial market. Her fans are eagerly awaiting the drop of her debut album, which is expected in June of 2018.
In the interim, Fielies has collaborated with Craig Lucas, on his hit song “Smother”. The song has gone on to dominate charts nationwide in South Africa, after its debut at number 1 on the iTunes Pop Chart.
When it comes to performing, she is superbly versatile, bouncing from a smooth and spine chilling ballad to dancy pop numbers, such as her hit debut single “Demonstrate”. In April 2018, Fielies was invited to Sweden as part of The World Children’s Prize foundation, in plight of raising awareness for Children’s rights globally. She was awarded The title of Ambassador for Queen Silvia’s “You Me: Equal Rights” Campaign.
When working with Paxton, her wisdom exceeds her age, impressing and leaving an impact on every stage she graces.
