The day has arrived for the world to see the Ndlovu Youth Choir on AGT and they did such an amazing job singing an original “We Will Rise”.


United States of America (24 January 2023) – Get ready to shed a few tears of joy, pride and heartwarming excitement! The Ndlovu Youth Choir gave an outstanding audition at America’s Got Talent (AGT) All-Stars competition and seeing their progress means everything!

Firstly, the choir shares how the first show has changed so many of their lives. They travelled to America to audition for AGT in 2019 and breezed through all the rounds while filling South Africa and the world with pride! Their first audition went viral and had many South Africans in tears; everyone was bubbling with pride.

That audition and their time at AGT catapulted the youth choir to international heights. The fame and opportunity have united the choir and their community has benefitted greatly. Many of the choir members now support their families. They have upgraded their homes so they can have access to electricity and water, children are going to school and the poverty level is shifting.

Being invited back to AGT this year has been a dream come true, twice! They have been included in the All-Stars Show, which will highlight 60 acts from around the world.

“We’re living our dream and are thankful for every opportunity to showcase our talents. Our dream is to inspire and showcase the boundless potential of young South Africans. We Will Rise! AGT, we loved being back and are honoured to officially be an All-Star”

We promised that as soon as their audition video was live, we would share it and here it is! What we love most is that as the choir takes the stage, Simon Cowell, a big supporter of their dreams, breaks into a HUGE smile. The judges may have also thrown around “best choir ever” statements before they even started!

For the audition, the choir sang their original “We Will Rise” which is such a homegrown feel-good, that the world deserves to hear. Oh and don’t forget to grab a tissue because you will cry!
