Vernon Barnard

The Voice SA Season 1 finalist Vernon Barnard, who grabbed the nation’s attention in a big way when he had coach Bobby van Jaarsveld weeping during his first audition on the series, has released his debut single and music video today through Universal Music South Africa. Vernon, who has been blind since an early age, had his first audition on M-Net’s hit talent competition shared by none other than Hollywood celebrity Ashton Kutcher, garnering over 8 million You Tube views to date.

Today sees the release of his first single and video for the track named “I Like It That Way”. This upbeat song is driven by a spring-inspired groove and heartfelt lyrics about a special lady who captures Vernon’s heart through her unique style.

“I’m so excited to share my debut with the South African public! This single is a feel good song and a good mixture of catchy melodies and uplifting lyrics. I hope everyone will enjoy listening to the song just as much as I enjoyed making it,” says the young singer from Strand.

Filmed over the course of a day in and around Pretoria, the video shows Vernon and his band hijacking a broadcast tower and broadcasting their song out to the world.
