A memoir by South African musician P.J. Powers.
PJ Powers was lead singer for the rock and roll band, Hotline, formed in Johannesburg in 1980. Hotline was the first all-white band to find a receptive audience amongst black South Africans, who gave her the nickname Thandeka (the loved one). After Hotline disbanded in 1987 PJ Powers pursued a solo career. One of her biggest hits with Hotline was "Jabulani", written by bass guitarist, George van Dyk. In 1995, she recorded the Rugby World Cup official song, "World in Union", with Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
