This year you can carols by candlelight from the comfort of home and enjoy 11 incredible musicians all while supporting the children of South Africa.


South Africa (27 November 2020) – The annual SPAR Carols by Candlelight presented by Jacaranda FM is doing things a little differently this year.

“No long bathroom queues, glass and bottles are encouraged, and the best part – you can dress in your comfy PJ’s. We’re live-streaming an incredible line-up to your home, and public event rules don’t apply.” Says Deirdre King – Jacaranda FM Managing Director. 

The concert is still free, but SPAR and Jacaranda FM are asking everyone to dig deep this year. All funds raised through digital donations will ensure that the Good Morning Angels team can gift vulnerable children across South Africa news toys of their own.

“Last year the event gathered 125 giant boxes of toys and R80 000 that reached children from six homes across South Africa,” adds King.

In true Good Morning Angels spirit, the event also collected 25 boxes of flood relief supplies for the Mamelodi residence who suffered from the 2019 flash floods. It goes without saying that 2020 could do with the hope and gees that this event creates each year – I hope South Africa will join us in making this year’s event the biggest yet.” Adds Martin Bester, Jacaranda FM Breakfast Drive Presenter.

Some of South Africa’s favourite musicians will be performing the Christmas carols we all know and love. Take a look at the line-up below.

“We couldn’t possibly break the tradition, and end the year without our SPAR and Jacaranda Carols by Candlelight, so we are delighted that we will still be a part of this wonderful Christmas celebration, but this time in the homes of our shoppers and Jacaranda listeners.” Said Pieter van Vuuren, SPAR Inland Advertising and Promotions Manager
