You can already see the video for the track at Heinz Winckler MySpace. or on his YouTube channel.
The first Afrikaans coverversion of Believe Again was recorded by Henri Alant. The track is called Ek Glo (I believe) and was planned to be on Alant's forthcoming CD (which seems unsure now). Ek Glo is already issued on a 6 track advance promo CD Sal Jy by Artists Warehouse.
Two other artists in the battle for Believe Again are Kobus Muller and Francois Marais.

Another singer from South Africa who has recorded Believe Again is Charl Stone. Charl is a policeman from George (on the south coast). He recorded the song in English for his debut album 'n Nuwe Geur (a new scent). You can listen to this and other tracks at his MySpace. The album is out on
