The Vrede Foundation, which was founded by Herman Pretorius, who lost his battle to cancer eight days before his 30th birthday in 2009 is dedicated to raising awareness, early detection, as well as funds for young South Africans with cancer.
Blood Brothers recorded a heartfelt song in Afrikaans, English and Xhosa, Ek Sweer op my Lewe (I swear on my life) to raise more funds for the Vrede Foundation and as a keepsake for those who can’t make it to the concert. This gripping single can be purchased from iTunes, Bandcamp and the Google Play Store.
Herman’s brother, Henré Pretorius, coordinated and co-directed the music video for Ek Sweer op my Lewe, to whet fans appetites for the Blood Brothers’ epic show at Carnival City on 9 September 2016. Check the music video below:
The music video was directed by Henre Pretorius & Johan Beukes. “Ek Sweer Op My Lewe” was written, recorded and mixed by George van der Spuy (Taxi Violence & Crawling King Snake) and Nicolai Roos at Kill City Blues. “We gave the Blood Brothers a basic template which involved each band member’s contribution. Each member put their own feel and stamp on the parts they recorded,” says George.
