Fans of veteran American musician Regina Belle have every reason to smile - their favourite musician will be touring the country later this month.

The tour, dubbed Regina Belle and Friends Tour, will also see Glenn Jones and Phil Perry entertain their fans in South Africa and Swaziland.

The tour starts on November 28 with a performance at the Grandwest Casino and Entertainment in Cape Town, at Nasrec on Friday November 30, and then at Mavuso Exhibition Centre on December 1.

Born in New Jersey, US, Belle recorded her first solo album All By Myself, which featured the smash hit Show Me the Way. The album Stay With Me and the single Baby Come To Me hit number one in 1989.

Jones' singing origins are from the church, working with gospel greats such as Reverend James Cleveland and the Mighty Clouds of Joy.

Perry has supported artists such as Rod Stewart and Peabo Bryson. This tour promises to leave an experience to cherish to the followers of these great musicians.
