Beautiful Afrikaans music albums

What are some beautiful Afrikaans-language music albums? I'm looking for modern popular music that is not too folksy or religious, in addition to more timeless songs.

I have enjoyed certain songs from Laurika Rauch, Lianie May, Nianell, and Andriette, but I haven't yet found a whole album of Afrikaans music that I would enjoy listening to from start to finish. I love the style of Dutch singers Stef Bos and Pia Douwes. A Dutch or Afrikaans CD with classic songs and covers would be wonderful, but I'd also be pleased with a modern pop album, provided the lyrics are not too corny and it's not in the gospel vein. Do you have any suggestions?
