Tia Herman, popularly known as Tima Reece, recorded her debut album, My Body’s Crying, under the international record label, Warner Bros, earning her a Sama Award nomination and she hasn’t looked back since.

She is currently working on a new album project set for release before the end of this year.

Her husband Kurt has many accolades across the wide spectrum of our local entertainment industry.

According to Dawson, he is instantly recognisable as part of the winning group 101 in the inaugural 2002 Coca Cola Pop Stars Competition, beating over 8 000 to this title.

Dawson explained that since 2011, Kurt’s entertainment company, BluBerry Entertainment, has successfully written and produced renowned shows for a variety of corporate clients and reviews including Fiesta Fever, Chix Rock, What Happens in Vegas and Electric Circus, Latinova and Perfect Pitch among others.

“Kurt is a regular back-up vocalist for the Idols reality television series and has recently been appointed vocal and performance coach for the hit vocal competition, The Voice SA,” added Dawson.
