MUSIC sensation Zahara has penned a new song - Hold On - which she unveiled to the public at the weekend.
The recording also includes a collaboration with American songwriter and singer Leroy Bell.
"She is an amazing singer who achieved success within a short space of time, a great singer and an accomplished songwriter.. I got hold of her music, and simply fell in love with her voice," Bell told Sowetan, ahead of the live recording.
Bell is best known for being a finalist in the reality programme The X Factor, apart from his other musical exploits.
Zahara, however, said she was initially nervous about the prospect of working with Bell as he is the same person who has written songs for music greats Michael Bolton, Sir Elton John and the O'Jays, among other big international names.
"But since his arrival, the chemistry between us has been great," she said.
