David Four established himself in South African music history with a platinum selling career. He started singing at the age of 6 and made his first professional appearance in 2002 when he reached the finals of the popular reality show, Pop Idol. In his native country, he is known as David Fourie, but after visiting New Zealand in 2014 he was so inspired by local influences and raw talent that he decided to change the trajectory of his career and leave behind the comfort of fame and commercial success.
David enjoyed several career highlights to date, including opening for Westlife on their South African tour and he was invited as a special guest to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011. He also recorded the winning song, Running Scared, which became a No.1 hit in South Africa. He has appeared on international television on several occasions, performing the South African, Australian and Scottish Anthems at rugby tests in 2007, 2011, 2013 and 2017. He has performed in the United Kingdom, USA, Germany and Australia.
