Bitton is a South African performer who has been using her vocal talent to lift her neighbours' spirits during the lockdown.

Over the last few weeks, she has had a few 30-minute performances from her balcony in the evenings, bringing cheer to Sea Point residents and paying tribute to essential workers.

Her balcony performances have also been streamed online, with much of the proceeds going to breast cancer support group Reach4Recovery.

But local authorities recently put a stop to her entertaining balcony concerts due to laws around amplified sound.

Bitton is now waiting on feedback from Sea Point ward councillor Nicola Jowell after submitting the signatures of her petition.

As of Tuesday morning, a total of 7,548 have signed the petition wanting Bitton to get behind the mic again.

If she is granted permission to perform again, her next concert will take place on Saturday 9 May around sunset.

We're just waiting on the ward councillor and the ratepayers association to sign off and allow us to do it and allow me to sing.

I started a petition to try and get as many people on board as possible in the Sea Point community.

Bitton was touring the world last year as a cast member of the hit musical production Evita.

She returned to South Africa in December 2019 after she was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer.

Even while undergoing chemotherapy during the lockdown, she still maintains a positive spirit.

I just want to bring some joy to my neighbours; they've loved it so much. They've written to me and told me I am lifting their spirits.

Last night was everything, it was so wonderful to sing again and have the privilege of performing for my neighbourhood Sea Point, Cape Town and honouring our front line workers that are working around the clock for us. This song is very special to me, I used to sing it with my late father, and haven't sang it in over 10 years. it is a song of hope, of faith that we can overcome anything if we just believe. I know I am going to beat this and I know as a nation we will overcome this too, and I pray we come out of it kinder, more compassionate and loving towards one another 💗 SEE THE FULL LIVE SHOW ON MY YOUTUBE www.youtube.com/divadlb and please Subscribe 🙏🏼 Share and spread the Light, Love & Hope during these trying times #Seapointserenadesessions #seapointserenade #BeatingCancer #Brestcancerawareness #Balconyboogie #WarriorWoman #lockdown #ChemoandCorona #livemusic #whenyoubelieve #hallelujah #seapoint #capetown #atlanticseaboard #spreadlove #love #spreadlight #light #spreadhope #hope #singtogether #united #proudlysouthafrican #coronavirus #covid19 #dontcryformequarentina #iwillsurvive #surviveandthrive
