“ON THE RISE: Kyle McDonald is making his name known. By Robin Erasmus Kyle McDonald has worked hard to become a household name in the music industry. Born and raised in Norscot Manor of central Johannesburg, this 25 year old is imprinting footsteps of success in the right direction. An interest for singing picked up when McDonald was six, and escalated into professional voice training from the age of 13. McDonald’s musical inspirations are far and wide, but when narrowed down, he looks for guidance from Usher, Beyonce and Michael Jackson. Tumi Tladi discovered McDonald at Danceweb Studios in Johannesburg, when he decided to learn how to match his dancing to stage performances. Four years later, Tladi joined forces with Juan Louw and Andrea Golding to form JTA Music Management.”
