The world is standing united behind the global airline industry, saying, “We Will Travel Again”, and sharing a compilation of airline Jerusalema challenges.
Global (25 March 2021) – A video compilation of every airline doing the Jerusalema challenge is going viral as travellers around the world commit to the “We Will Travel Again” promise.
While Jerusalema was the upliftment song of 2020, it still carries as much power and joy into 2021. The last time we reported on the song, Austrian Airlines had used the challenge to kick off their 2021.
Jerusalema – a song by South African DJ and record producer Master KG featuring South African vocalist Nomcebo – became the hope that 2020 needed and united the world in a dance that has continued straight into 2021!
The upbeat gospel-influenced South African house song reached number one in Belgium, Netherlands, Romania and Switzerland while peaking in the top ten of multiple other European countries. Still, it was the viral dancing that really made our hearts sing!
It was the top song on Apple for a few weeks and landed Master KG with five award nominations for the African Muzik Magazine Awards (Afrimma).
The song also earned the proudly South African artist an international nomination for the “Best African Act” Award at the 2020 MTV Europe Music Awards. The award ceremony took place on the 8th of November 2020, and Master KG earned himself the award!
The “Jerusalema Challenge”, which has been compared to the Macarena, spawned thousands of dance videos worldwide.
In January 2021, ML Videography created a compilation video of all the Jerusalema challenges done by the airline industry. The video is currently being shared on Facebook along with the slogan “We Will Travel Again”. The video is being shared by people standing in solidarity with the global airline industry that was hard-hit by the pandemic.
