Biographical Information
Tender Mavundla
(At a Glance)
Date of Birth: Feb/2/1982
Gender: female
Website: http://www.ten...
Place of Origin: South Africa

Tender was born in Port Shepstone, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, but grew up in a little village called KwaNositha. She completed her primary schooling in Durban whilst staying with her aunt but went back home to Gamalakhe in 1996 to start grade 6. During her high school years she was actively involved in stage plays and at one point, was part of a gospel choir. In 1997 she won SABC 1’s Jam Alley Megastar Competition and realised that she should pursue her singing career seriously. Tender moved to Johannesburg and sang backing vocals for various artists, worked as a waitress and had success in a Gospel Star Search where she made it top the Top 5. In 2001 she was diagnosed with HIV and decided to move back to Port Shepstone where she until recently, worked in retail for Waltons Stationery. When Idols arrived in Margate in June 2007, she jumped at the chance to enter and the rest, as they say, is history! Tender is in great demand as a motivational speaker, is a diva in her own right, and has recently completed recording her debut Afro-Pop/Afro Soul album 'Tender Moments'. Her favourite quote is ‘everything happens for a reason’ and she describes herself as: “outgoing, funny, strong, been there – done that – got the t-shirt!“ Tender is available for performances and to MC, and will add a touch of sultry soul to any event or occasion.
