Lyndle Kearns

Lyndle Kearns (born December 5, 1984), often known simply as Lyn is a South African R&B and Pop recording artist. Born and raised in Mitchell’s Plain, Lyndle started singing at the age of 6 years.  She shared a stage with big names such as Madegah Petersen and Taliep Petersen at 12 years of age.

Lyndle worked closely with artists such as close friend, Emo Adams, Loukmaan Adams and their father Boeta Maan, who was also a great contributor to her current vocal ability.

Lyndle studied music at Simon Estes Music High School.  She joined a vocal girl group called Just Us, which was created by Emo Adams and managed by Vincent Vee.  The group became extremely popular in the music industry.

Lyndle entered Idols Season 1 at the age of 17, where she left Cape Town after advancing to the top 100.  Her performances were captivating and she had the support of many South Africans.  She made it to the top 6 position and remains one of the favourite Idols contestants to date.

Idols was a life-changing experience and close bonds were also formed with Bianca le Grange and Brandon October.

Just Us went on to enter a national vocal competition called Voice Search in 2000.  They won the competition and were crowned the Best Female Vocal Group in the country.

Lyndle then received very valuable training from world-renowned opera singer June Kraus of New York, United States of America.  Lyndle moved with June in order to receive constant training to strengthen her vocally and mentally in preparation for her career.

Thereafter, Lyndle worked with the likes of DJ Fresh, Sipho Ngwenya and Gareth Cliff, who was also coached by June.

Lyndle has been blessed to have many doors opened and had the privilege of working with some of the biggest entertainers in the country, as well as the world.

Lyndle appeared on the Felicia Mabuza-Suttle show for a 50 minute interview as well as 3 Talk on SABC3.

Thereafter, she worked closely with the cast of Isidingo and Generations, as well as with Danny K and Patricia Lewis.

Idols produced an album called The Idols Album which featured a song called All The Man That I Need by the late Whitney Houston, who was her initial inspiration to singing.

Lyndle signed up with Adventure Music, an independent recording label in Durban, where her album was produced.  The song, Good Time Girl, was one of the hits on the album and reached the number one spot on GHFM for 2 consecutive weeks and also reached top 10 on Heart FM for a month.

It was a great honour for Lyndle to be part of the MJ production.

Lyndle continues to deliver great performances country-wide and invests a lot in charity work, which is close to her heart.
