Still working on that hot first release.



He will probably always be known locally as the first winner of South African Idol back in 2002, but this singer with his huge voice and witty, charismatic stage personality has a number of other significant notches in his belt including: 

4th place in World Idol, being a Disney soundtrack artist, 3 SAMA nominations, 3 People Magazine Crystal Awards, 3 Ghoema Award nominations, 4 Tempo Award nominations, winner of Bok radio’s Singer of the Year award 2014, Once In A Lifetime single release, 6 studio albums and 2 Live DVD’s (out of which he achieved Double Platinum, Platinum and Gold status sales), lead role in North American and Japanese touring production of  RENT, roles in the local soapie, Binnelanders and drama series, Getroud Met Rugby, continuity presenter on the Kyknet channel, and lead role in “Jesus The Musical” (Afrikaans) at the Pretoria State Theatre; a lead role in the hit romantic comedy, “Mooirivier” for which he wrote and co-produced the hit single “Meisie Van My Hart”; and 2015 saw him releasing his first book, “In Ritme Met God” - a testimony based book on identity and calling.

This singer, song-writer, actor, writer, speaker, music producer and business owner regularly hosts workshops for aspiring singers and produces music for up and coming artists. 

Heinz is the proud husband of Aletté-Johanni Winckler and father to three boys, Lian, Simeon and Reuben.
