Most people confuse Deborah Fraser with Rebecca Malope, also a South African Gospel artist who is more known outside of SA. Their music is of he same genre and sometimes it hard to tell their voices apart.
There is something about South African Gospel music and even South African music in general that makes one want to cry/become very emotional. I guess its because it has alot of that in  itself- soulfulness and whole hearted singing.

I came to know Deborah about 4 years ago and this particular song, Abanye Bayombona which also happens to be the title for her 2nd album. Her first Album is called Udlalile Ngabantu.

Deborah  started out working with composer, singer and gospel producer Mthunzi Namba who also hails from her province,KwaMashu. She rose to prominence after announcing that she is the voice being used in many songs that were only credited to the late Brenda Fassie.
