Striking that perfect music note of an Angel of Beauty in looks and voice, as our MOLLMAG SOUTH AFRICA CEO Arne Schreuder interviews Music Artist / Song Writer and model from SOUTH AFRICA , MOLLBABE beauty Sunel van der Linde
Welcome Sunel ,
Tell us a bit more about yourself in a nutshell ?
My name is Sunel, I’m 24 years old and I’m a singer and songwriter from Mosselbay / Western Cape, South Africa. I have a huge passion for music, fashion and all things creative.
How did your passion for modeling start ?
Well, I wouldn’t quite say I’m a model, but I love doing spontaneous photo shoots and I have a big passion for photography and editing, so it’s something I quite enjoy doing , as my main focus is my music and song writing.
We also noticed that you’re also a music artist and singer , tell us about that journey a bit more please ?
Thats true yes …… I’m a singer and songwriter. I released my first single called – “Fickle Heart” along with the music video earlier this year and I’m currently working on my first Afrikaans single that will be released in 2018. Music and song writing have always been my passion, and it’s amazing that I can do it for a career.
As a music artist and model , how do you handle and juggle between the 2 in your busy lifestyle ?
I think it’s all about prioritizing and of course staying focused. If you love what you do, it won’t ever feel like you’re working a day in your life. It‘s all about passion in the end.
In music who is your music icon and idol you look up to in the music artist business that you find yourself ?
There is quite a few artists I look up to and whose work I admire, but if I can only choose two artists to work with, it would definitely be Ryan Tedder (lead singer of One Republic) he’s an amazing songwriter and producer, and then of course Taylor Swift. I love her uniqueness and the fact that she’s not scared to cause a bit of controversy when it comes to songwriting. I have a huge amount of respect for artists and people in general who’s not afraid to push the boundaries and be different.
As its festive season this December what festive music carol jingle is your favorite and why do you say so ?
Oh that’s easy, any Christmas carol by Michael Bublé . I love his voice, and also that bit of old school jazzy vibes he brings to it.
How did you feel when you got the news from our CEO Arne Schreuder that you will be one of our local and international MOLLBABE model features for our DECEMBER 2017 festive season feature ?
Well it was quite unexpected and I was very surprised. But I’m very excited to be featured in MOLLMAG South Africa and USA, I think it’s super cool! , and its a awesome feeling and perfect present for this festive season. Thank you so much.
Describe your sense of fashion style to us what would you say is your favorite outfits to wear for this season ?
If I can choose 3 words to describe my sense of style it would be timeless, effortless and classy. I think you should stick to with what looks good on you, and if you look great, you’ll feel great. If you have denim and something black in your closet, you have a wardrobe. I totally love my denims top to bottom and black tops.
Complete the sentence in your own words ” To be successful in what you do, you should be………? “
What’s your Christmas wish you have this festive season please share with us ?
My Christmas wish is for everyone to be able to spend time with their families and loved ones. I think there’s so many people out there that would give anything to be able to spend time with the ones they love over the festive season, and sometimes we take it for granted so easily. Cherish each and every single moment you have with the people that you love.
