The Virtual Braai

Twitter is like those newspaper headlines that you see on lampposts. Just a quick bit of news to encourage you to investigate more. Minute-by-minute information of what is happening right now.

Facebook is like a newspaper that you buy and scan through, picking out the interesting bits and throwing the rest away. Day-by-day information of what is happening in your world.

A Blog is like a magazine, that you read more thoroughly, and perhaps even keep for future reference.

A Website is like a coffee table book with lots of detailed information on a subject you are really interested in.

And all of this is so we can stand around our Virtual Braai and discuss topics that are close to our hearts.

Born in Cape Town, International Model, ELBE VAN, combined with her amazing achievements to date, is now ready to enter the world of music as a talented recording artist, fulfilling her passion.

She has graced the pages of fashion magazines and catwalks around the globe and has appeared in advertising campaigns for Revlon, Elle perfume, Sports illustrated, Jean Paul Gaultier, Speedo, and is currently the face of Wonderbra. Her established modeling career, dedication and professional work ethic will most certainly contribute to her success as a recording artist.

She is mid-way through her debut solo album “PAPILION”, which falls loosely under the genre of main stream POP. The first single “PLAN B”, produced by Graham Ward and written by L.A. based songwriter, Pam Sheyne, who penned “Genie in a Bottle”, is now available to download at Rhythm Music Store.
