#CEOSleepout: Vincent Bones' story of success

Idols SA 2014 winner Vincent Bones was in the #702Unplugged studio recently, where he performed his new single "My Lady" for the first time ever! 30 days ahead of the CEO Sleepout, Vincent shares his life story and explains his vehement support of the initiative.

After his stellar performance on #702Unplugged the Idols SA talent explained that he supports the CEO Sleepout because Boys and Girls Town changed his life.

Having lost his parents at the tender age of 11, Vincent Bones was an orphan on the cold, hard streets of Pretoria for two years before he was taken in by Boys Town, where he started school and began to rebuild his life and discover his dreams.

Boys and Girls Town is the organization that will benefit from the funds raised from the CEO Sleepout, where 250 CEO's will sleep outside on the coldest night of the year, 18 June.

Vincent Bones sat down to share his life story in an exclusive interview with 702 that you can watch below:
