SECRETS TO MY GROWTH, an inspirational album by former Miss South Africa and Miss World, Rolene Strauss has just been released!
This spoken word album is perhaps a little unusual for South African audiences, but the lessons shared on the album are universal and the perfect choice as a gift for the special ladies in your life this Christmas.
The album is available on all digital platforms and will be in all good music stores from next week.

“SECRETS TO MY GROWTH is a compilation of life lessons and stories that I would like to share with people; these are the things I wish I had known when I was younger. The album enabled me to bare my soul in way I have never done before, and to share parts of myself that people have never seen,” says Rolene.
The messages on SECRETS TO MY GROWTH are complemented by beautifully shot videos produced by Inhoud Huis Musiek and available for viewing on Rolene’s YouTube channel. She is quick to point out, however, that the images are there to support the words and, while each video is perfectly suited to its accompanying track, it does not portray stories in their entirety.
“While the videos offer some imaginative interpretations for the messages I’m trying to convey, they are there to plant a seed, not tell a particular story, and are therefore minimalistic. I want people to interpret each message as it applies to them in that moment, at that particular stage of their lives”, Rolene continues.

Spoken word as a genre is defined as poetry intended for performance and while popular overseas, SECRETS TO MY GROWTH is one of the first attempts at locally producing an album in this genre.
