Amy Tjasink Speaks Up Against Gender-Based Violence In New Single ‘I Am A Fire’

Local songstress Amy Tjasink has gone on to do incredible things since making the top seven on local singing competition ‘The Voice South Africa’. This year, she dropped both ‘Spiderman Kiss’ and ‘Game Over’ featuring Jimmy Nevis which went on to achieve moderate success on radio stations across the country. Now, in her brand-new single, the singer is making sure her voice is heard as she speaks up against gender-based violence in new single ‘I Am A Fire’.

“For years, I have had a yearning in my soul to create something bigger than my own dreams,” Amy tells us. “I have wanted to use my talent, music and various platforms to make a true difference, and that difference now comes in the form of the ‘I am a Fire’ Anti-GBV Campaign, which is intended to create enough awareness around the absolute devastation that is caused by Gender Based Violence.”

With its haunting lyrics, Amy and producer Colin Sher knew that they wanted to create a similar experience when it came to the song’s production. “The lyrical content already had a haunting feel and was calling for me to add a cinematic and epic production, which ended up being one of the most moving and empowering pieces I have had the honour of working on,” Colin explains.

The song also features a music video which embodies the feeling of the single and aims to bring attention to the ‘I Am A Fire’ campaign which is aimed at getting enough signatures on the petition to change the law in South Africa, that being, no bail, no parole and life means for life as well as donate financial assistance to Amy’s choice of GBV charity – www.thesafehouse.org.za.
