The Drakensberg Boys Choir were invited to perform on the current season of the Voice South Africa, and their performances were incredible.
South Africa – The Drakensberg Boys Choir has made a habit of giving showstopping, encore inducing performances that provide full body chills. They have once again done so but this time on a massive stage. They joined multiple performers on the Voice stage.
The 24 boys were excited to work with the top musicians and industry specialists involved with the show. During the show, the boys performed the opening act of ‘Special Star’, with the final seven contestants, paying tribute to Mango Groove. Later in the show, the boys joined contestants performing Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Johnny Clegg’s ‘The Crossing’, and culminated in a performance with Fokofpolisiekar frontman, and The Voice SA judge, Francois van Coke. They sang the band’s song ‘Komma’.
Following on from this spectacular demonstration of talent, the boys have embarked on a national tour, stopping in at the towns of Bloemfontein (25 June), Graaff-Reinet (26 June), Port Elizabeth (27 June) and East London (28 June). Their exciting performances don’t stop there.
Later in the year, the Choir departs on its annual International Tour, this time to the UK. During the period of 11-20 October, the Choir will have several shows in London.
The Drakensberg Boys Choir School caters for Grade 4-9 boys from all over the world, who are musically-inclined. The school is nestled in the heart of the Drakensberg and is one of the only dedicated boys’ choir schools in the world.
