On that eve, Gloria was supposed to perform at the East London Guild Theatre for the 3rd Annual Restoration In Jazz Tribute & Fundraiser Concert, where many were gathered to honour late jazz bassist Lulama Gaulana.

  “When [I was] at Sheer [music label] we found and developed lots of talent through the 90s and 2000s and Gloria was really an amazing artist. It was an honour to have worked with her for six albums, many concerts and awards. Thank you to Gloria for all that she gave to all of us. May she live on through her music,” he told TshisaLIVE.
