Elvis Blue became a household name when he won the South African Idols competition in 2010. Soon after this milestone, he released his debut album titled, Elvis Blue. The project was certified gold only 28 days after its release and reached the platinum status a few months later.
He has had the honour of opening for international artists such as James Blunt and Bruce Springsteen. In the past four years the Idols winner has toured extensively, playing approximately 600 shows. In April 2012, the album Elvis Blue was named Best Adult Contemporary Album at the South African Music Awards (SAMAs).
Blue’s second album, Journey garnered no less than three SAMAs in 2013, including Best Male Artist, Album of the Year and Song of the Year for Lifeline. His third album, Afrikaans reached platinum status in October 2014. The project also won Best Afrikaans Adult Contemporary Album at the 2014 SAMAs, Album of the Year and Best Male Artist at the annual Ghoema Awards.
