Thapelo Esau is 20 years old and comes from Vosloorus in the East Rand.
She actually fell off during Theatre Week in Idols SA Season 12 after she lost her voice.
But the aspirant singer managed to push through when the same thing threatened to happen again this season.
Her determination, from the time she auditioned in Pretoria, has seen her make the Top 16.
