[WATCH] Zarcia Zacheus lights up #702Unplugged with some smooth jazz songs

Eldorado Park-born musician Zarcia Zacheus has released her debut album, 'Therapy'.

At the age of nine, Zacheus began singing in the church choir conducted by her mom. When she was 13, she auditioned for and landed a role in her first professional stage production - 'My Girl' at Johannesburg's Gold Reef City Theatre.

She joins Azania Mosaka on 702 Unplugged to talk about the successful reception of her album.

Zacheus says 'Therapy' is an honest collection of songs written straight from the heart.

I found that the reception with my music is so broad and open and it's been played across stations.

Zarcia Zacheus, Singer and songwriter

I feel like my music is like a melting pot of all my influences - there is jazz, gospel and country music.
