Garth Prinsonsky (stage name: Garth Prince) was born in Cape Town, South Africa and grew up in Namibia, Africa. After fifteen years of singing with African bands and touring with Namibia’s number one choir, Garth ended up in North America after marrying a music teacher whom he met on a Canada tour in 2006.
While in Africa, Garth was the lead singer of multiple award nominated and award-winning vocal group, “Afroshine” with whom he reached the number one spot on African music television charts. Their music connected the Namibian choral world with the contemporary scene and continues to receive airplay on African radio and television stations.
Since moving to Canada, Garth has been working on his debut album which is also his first solo project. His global experience led him to create a unique blend of African pop music with the intention of creating a basic introduction to the Motherland.
In 2010, Garth learnt that his close friend from Namibia had contracted HIV and had since passed away. This was a difficult loss for Garth, who decided to write a song to honour his friend. The song "God Bless Africa" was the start of Garth's fight against AIDS and against discrimination of those infected. and since then, a part of the procedes of all his CD sales contribute to the fight against AIDS in Africa.
His message, music, and live performances have since reached schools, festivals, corporate entities and many individuals around the world.
