"I'll be your voice"

Music and lyrics: Rozanne Visagie(Copyright)
Song: Written on 28 January 2012 in aid of the anti-rhino poaching cause

Chorus:
I'll be your voice
I'll speak for you
I'll make a way
that's good and true
When all seems lost 
I'll fight for you
This is my pledge
It's what I'll do

Bridge:
Your eyes I see
Before me now
Your silent plea
Becomes my vow
Who'll care for you
If it's not me
If it's not us
If it's not we?

Verse:
From the dawn of time
When the earth was new
And mountains rose
And tall trees grew

Your ancient paths have formed
Across the land
You only leave
Prints in the sand

Chorus:
I'll be your voice
I'll speak for you
I'll make a way
That's good and true
When all seems lost
I'll fight for you
This is my pledge
It's what I'll do

Verse:
How bleak it will be
A land no longer free
No roar of beast
No sound of bird
No creature great or small
To share this open land
Just empty cries that can't be heard

Repeat chorus a few times and fade to the end:
I'll be your voice
I'll speak for you
I'll make a way
That's good and true
When all seems lost
I'll fight for you
This is my pledge

It's what I'll do.....

Rozanne's CD's

Jesus se Soldaatjies by Rozanne
Hierdie album is ideaal vir die jonger kind ... vanaf geboorte en tot en met die ouderdom van so 8 tot 9 jaar. Hulle sal lekker saamsing met die bekende wysies wat hul ouers en grootouers geleer het en wat mens nie eintlik meer hoor nie ... Daar is 'n paar nuwe liedjies uit Rozanne se pen soos 'Sing 'n nuwe lied'; 'Klaasvakie' en 'Dis Kersfees' en dan ook die bekende 'Stille Nag' en 'Brahms se wiegelied' asook 'n hele paar van die ou pragtige halleluja's! 'Bethlehem stal se muis' vertel die storie van die muis by die krip in Betlehem en wat hy alles daar sien gebeur. Rozanne se eie seun en dogter ... toe 8 en 4; sing ook op die CD asook twee van die Tygerberg kinderkoor kinders. Die ou kleintjies behoort 'Jesus se soldaatjies' baie te geniet en oupa en ouma sal ook lekker saamsing!
 
Broken Fence by Rozanne
This is a truly Southern African gospel album with Afrikaans, English, Shona and Xhosa lyrics ... The title track (Broken Fence) describes the life journey of the singer and composer,Rozanne Visagie. The first track on the album 'I'll still be free' was written for Zimbabwe and the whole of Africa as an celebration of God's grace!Many of the tracks are songs of hope and tracks three and four have very deep spiritual messages. 'Heer U ken my' and 'Dis so stil' are both prayers. Rozanne has after 21 years since her first album, embarked on a new path of self and musical discovery with an exciting, yet thought- provoking new sound ... Some of the tracks are more traditional and cater for an older audience like 'Die Onse Vader' and 'Immanuel' whereas others have a more modern arrangement and sound like, 'I'll still be free', 'Saint's Lullaby' and 'He loved me'... Rozanne's son(16)plays the piano and her daughter(12) sings 'Give me Jesus'(a traditional African American track) with her, in a unpretentious way! This album is aimed at the slightly more mature and discerning audience and should give listeners much food for thought ... The album was recorded with many live instruments and over a period of two years ... This is truly Rozanne's heart poured out in music and her wish is that it'll bless those who listen to it.
 
Rozanne by Rozanne
This album with a mixture of Afrikaans and English tracks was recorded in 1989 and the arrangements were done by Tully McCully of McCully Workshop and Johan Laas (who now plays piano on most of the South Africa Idols series) Many of the tracks are original for the period in the 80's and the so-called "Luisterliedjie" era. The one track "Kan 'n man dan nie?"; sung with the Malayan choir, "The Golden strings", became an instant hit and was recorded by many other artists! Although this song was so popular, it was only available for a short period on LP and later on a compilation CD with "Goue Treffers" Many of the other tracks on the album are unique and Rozanne was much younger ... one can hear this in her voice. Some of the ballads and lovesongs on this album, like two of Rozanne's own compositions; "Duisende tree" and "Liedjie vir die jasgesigte"(about the beggars on Green market square); "Musiek van die liefde"(a lovesong with a sad twist) and "Krygsgevangene"(about the anglo Boer war) are not as commercial as "Kan 'n man dan nie?" and deserve their rightful place amongst the music of the late 1980's Afrikaans and English folk genre! Take a listen ... you might just be very surprised!

Feedback from various organizations where Rozanne Performed

“Ons het ongelooflike terugvoering gekry van Saterdag se gaste.  Die meeste het gese dat hulle nie kan glo dat die tyd so vinnig verby gegaan het nie.  ALMAL HET DIT BAIE GENIET EN WAG GLO AL BAIE LANK VIR SO 'N GELEENTHEID.  Baie dankie Rozanne vir jou optrede.  Ons mense het jou so geniet en wat die mense noem, is dat jy so gemaklik was ..... net soos ons wereld se mense.

Groete

Marieta”
(Van Rhynsdorp)


Van Bejaardeklub in Welgemoed:
Baie dankie vir jou optrede vanoggend.  Die terugvoer wat ek gekry het was wonderlik.  Die Here het jou sonder teologiese opleiding gebruik om ons almal te inspireer soos min opgeleide teoloë dit kon regkry.

Gaan voort om jou kaas ook vir ons gehawende mense- voëltjies uit te deel.

Mag die Here jou dra om jou boodskap van Sy groot genade verder te versprei.

Etienne Lötter


Hello Estelle

Vanoggend was soos die bruilof in Kanaan.  Soos Jesus se water wat in wyn verander was die beste was wat vir laaste gehou was, het jy ook die beste gaskunstenaar vir laaste gehou.

Rozanne het met haar egtheid en onopgesmuktheid 'n boodskap gebring wat diep tot almal wat daar was, gespreek het.  

Baie dankie vir al die gaskunstenaars wat jy vir ons gereël het in 2013.  Dankie veral vir Rozanne.

Etienne Lötter


“Ek het net mooi dinge gehoor van die oggend.
Rozanne se verhaal en dit wat sy as kind moes deur maak en ook as getroude vrou, gryp 'n mens aan.
Die rol wat die Here in haar lewe speel!
Haar sang is pragtig en ek dink Jesus is trots op haar.”

Susan Smit
AGS Malmesbury


Rozanne het vir ‘n klompie mooi dames op ‘n fris en vars lenteoggend tussen die wingerde by Carpe Diem, Upington kom kuier.  Haar vriendelikheid en sagte oop hart het elkeen daardie dag aangeraak. Dit was ‘n baie geseënde en inspirerende oggend saam met haar. Ons het saam gelag, saam ‘n traan weggepik en net ons batterye herlaai uit die woord en sang wat sy gebring het.

Behalwe vir die bederf daardie Saterdagoggend, het sy die Vrydag  ‘n onderhoud op ons plaaslike radio gedoen, Saterdagnamiddag die bejaardes van die Ouetehuis trakteer met haar sang en geselsies en Sondagoggend het sy hierdie geseënde naweek afgesluit met haar optrede by die NG Oos Gemeente.
Rozanne het  ’n blywende prentjie van liefde en omgee agtergelaat en ons herinner om altyd biddend op die Here te wag, Hy is getrou.
Elkeen se pad wat sy daardie naweek in Upington gekruis het, het sy aangeraak en daardie herinneringe sal ons Kalahari mense vir ewig en altyd koester.

Interview  of Rozanne Visagie on Radio One fm/ 94.0 on Thursday 27 October 2016:



Testimony of Rozanne Visagie(Singer,songwriter,author and motivational speaker) from South Africa:

Clay-molded in His hand

"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us" 2 Corinthians 4:7
The truth that lies hidden in this scripture became very much a part of Rozanne Visagie's life in 2009.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in that year and because no one in her direct family was ever diagnosed with this disease, it came as a terrible shock..
It leads to many questions and soul searching and deepening of her relationship with her Heavenly father. In the months that followed after the operations and radiation she once again became very aware of her own fragility, mortality and Jesus’ amazing grace! She who was once the carefree girl and who had  a stable and  secure upbringing suddenly realized once again, how she needed God and His grace...

Conversations with God

"I already learned to trust   Jesus from a young age when I, as the fourth of five children and much younger than my three older siblings (before my younger brother was born) was able to talk to the Lord. I could play and dream for hours in the gardens of the homes where we lived and it was a time where I could enjoy nature and God and write songs and poems about life and living..These were really (without me knowing it at the time)..prayers and poems for and conversations with the Lord.."

"Another turning point in my young life was the serious motor accident in which  both my dad and I nearly lost our lives in April 1976.We were involved in a head on collision and the other two people in the other vehicle were killed instantly. They were under the influence of alcohol.

I was flung against the front windscreen of the motorcar and my spleen ruptured. Passing motorists took me to the nearest hospital in Mosselbay where I underwent emergency surgery and later on back in Cape Town also plastic surgery on my badly cut forehead. I remember that even as I walked into the hospital with terrible pain and blood streaming from my head, I knew that I was not going into the theatre alone- He was with me..I experienced the peace and presence of the Lord so intensely, that I just knew He would spare my life."

Very lonely at times

Although Rozanne enjoyed normal friendships at school, there were still times when she was very lonely. She was however honored to be chosen as headgirl of her highschool by her piers and teachers in 1977.She did a year voluntary military service in the South African defence force at the SA army woman’s college in George and at the Castle in Cape Town in 1978.

Rozanne received her BA degree in Philosophy and Sociology at the University of Stellenbosch in 1981.
Some of her happiest years were at Stellenbosch University and she still has close contact with her best friend and roommate from those days.
Rozanne performed regularly during the 1980’s, worked for a film company as production co-ordinator, wrote a weekly column in a newspaper, produced musical shows for TV and travelled abroad, but she never lost her dream to record an album with her own music. In 1989 she was finally able to release her debut album “Rozanne” with the well-known Afrikaans hit song “Kan ‘n man dan nie?”(a song about fishing, which she sang with a Cape Malay choir)The song was a later also recorded by many other artists..Unfortunately the distribution company removed the full album from the music stores just before it got a lot of radio airtime..Through this situation Rozanne had to learn that things often don’t turn out the way one would like them to! She had to learn to wait for Jesus’ time..He often does not say yes or no..just wait...She had to wait for the right season for further musical breakthrough..Something that would only happen much later...

She held on to these scriptures while waiting on the Lord: Romans 8:28”And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” and Philippians 4:13”I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”

The right man at her side

In 1984 Rozanne met Schalk and things in her life took a very different turn. They were married in 1990.There son (Schalk jnr) was born in 1993 and their daughter (Shanna) in 1997, just three months before Rozanne’s mother passed away.

She felt that God had blessed her with this little girl too, to make the loss of her mother’s a little easier to handle. When her dad passed away in 2006 at the ripe age of 90 years, Rozanne knew that an important part of her life was over...

The PAGAD (People against gangsters and drugs) year

During the nineties Rozanne focused on raising her children and being there for her family. Schalk (snr) was commander of the PAGAD unit in South African Police service with the rank of a colonel. They were investigating serious violent crime and especially the series of bomb explosions in the Cape Peninsula at the time. On Friday afternoon 19 February 1999 he was followed by three masked men in a kombi (van) they tried to assassinate him by firing 54 bullets into his vehicle on one of the busy highways, Blackriver Parkway, during peak hour traffic in Cape Town. Three pieces of shrapnel hit him in the neck and hands. When he jumped out of his vehicle he was wounded in the leg with a R5 rifle. The fact that he survived this attack was due to God’s grace and the prayers of his mother from Psalm 91 that same morning. A nursing sister used someone’s T-shirt who was also in the traffic jam, to stop most of the bleeding until a helicopter arrived to take him to the nearby Milnerton Medi clinic. Schalk (jnr) was released on the same morning from that same hospital after being on a drip for three days after contracting viral encephilitis.Shanna broke her arm two months later and both children got chickenpox at the same time while the family was guarded at their home for eight months. Shanna also got lost in a shopping centre a week before Christmas that same year and they found her twenty minutes later where she sat in a little car close to the movies!

“I was relieved when 1999 was over ..It was a very difficult year for our family. The verses in Corinthians 12:9 became one of my special scriptures in that period:”And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness..”

Preparation for what was to follow

It was this grace that carried Rozanne again in 2009 when she had to struggle with breastcancer.It was then that she realized that our Heavenly father knows exactly how He should prepare us so that we would be able to handle whatever comes across our path.

During the six and a half week period of radiation treatment she sometimes only had the strength to repeat His name over and over..She realized once again how much power there is in the name of Jesus!

For some questions in this life there are no clear-cut answers..Why did she develop this cancer? Was it perhaps partly the result of the very stressful year in 1999?

In this difficult time she learned that one should try to remain creative. The doors remained closed for further musical projects, but she kept her eyes on Jesus,because she knew that our biggest stumbling blocks sometimes become our biggest stepping stones.

She wrote a children’s activity book in 2008..”Melino Ant discovers God’s wonderful world” with an author friend and recorded an album for young toddlers “Jesus se soldaatjies”(Jesus’ soldiers) in 2002 and still performed countrywide wherever she was invited.

Shortly before being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009 she started with recordings of her first gospel album “Broken Fence “She had prayed for 21 years for this opportunity..She sent the demo music  of the album to five record companies and no one even replied!

Two weeks after her radiation treatment was finished at the end of February 2010 the news came that the one company will distribute “Broken Fence” Twenty one years of prayer was answered!

“The song in your heart is not only for a human audience, but especially a cry for and intimacy with God!”

Words of worth and wisdom

Her biggest wish is that she will speak words of worth and wisdom and that her deeds will confirm those of her words. It was during the time in hospital that she was able to speak to fellow patients and staff about Jesus and was able to hand out some Bibles. She asked the Lord to use the radiation treatment to destroy the bad cells in her body and protect the good ones..She knew that the Lord is light and that He does not need the photon light of the machines to heal her..But that we need to make use of whatever means that He provides to minister to others and to make use of medical doctors and natural treatments as far as possible for healing. God has also given humans wisdom to treat and help others in need..we are the extension of His hands on this earth and members of the body of Christ. She listened to uplifting music in her vehicle on her way to the sessions and God truly became her light during this time.
She was given a second chance in life back then..

In 2016 Rozanne’s breast cancer returned (this time in her neck) and she had to have bone removed from her hip and planted into her neck with a titanium plate and screws.(Neck fusion operation)

The operation was performed on 12 July 2016. This has become one of the most difficult times of her life, but she experienced the grace of Jesus in a totally new and wonderful way through very special promises in the Word and the love and prayers of friends and family. She completed her radiation treatment on 1 September 2016 and keeps her eyes on the King of Kings for the plans that He has for her life.  She was given a third and another totally miraculous chance in life....

God’s ways are sometimes not clear to understand, but His plans are often surprising and unique and He can use our biggest despair to His glory and our further growth towards a more intimate relationship with our Creator. Praise His Holy Name forever!
