Terra Cox, Keegan Martin and Bevin Samuels have joined forces to form a boy band called ’15SIX’ and they are destined to be SA’s hottest boy band yet.
And what better time than the month of love to make their debut.
Their first stage performance will be February 18 when they take to the stage at the Boardwalk ICC in Port Elizabeth for a special Valentine’s Day-inspired show.
The trio will be joined on stage by Idols SA season 8 runner-up Melissa Allison, who, like Samuels, was also born in Port Elizabeth.

Cox, a former singer at Katzy’s Grillhouse in Rosebank, Johannesburg, and his two mates say the idea to join forces actually came from their millions of supporters.
“Because the demand was so big we decided to listen to the people and give it a try.”
And unlike other bands where only one gets to really shine, they decided to do things differently.
“All of us will be lead vocalists,” says Samuels, who has many female fans due to his Chris Brown looks,
Samuels says for now they will do cover versions and the like until such time that they have had enough time to work on an album.
“The group has just started and we want to give our supporters what they want, so working on an album will definitely be on the list of things to do this year.
“We are a versatile group. We cater for the old and the young by performing old Motown soul music to the most current, up-tempo, music on the charts.”
These three young men reached Idols SA top 10 last year, and millions of fans were devastated when they were voted out.
Martin, compared to Ginuwine and Teddy Pendergrass on many occasions, was the most shocking exit.
Next was Samuels, 19, the youngest contestant on the show.
Cox was touted to win, but lost his confidence in the last few shows, resulting in him being voted out.
But many have argued that he was the best talent Idols SA has ever had.
