It is safe to say that South Africans are living vicariously through the Ndlovu Youth Choir’s epic adventures this year, the latest… Meeting George Clooney!


Düsseldorf, Germany (25 May 2023) – The Ndlovu Youth Choir is having an incredible year so far! First being invited back to America’s Got Talent, then having Stevie Nicks (of Fleetwood Mac fame) ask to be part of the choir, then getting the chance to meet and perform for Sir Elton John and now, meeting Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney – it’s kind of hard not to be a little jelly!

In late April, the amazing choir announced that it was taking part in several international and local tours and for this reason, was establishing a second choir, to assist in the travelling. The choir already has six international tours on the books however here at home, they are also in demand. One team will take on the international commitments while the other will raise the roof in South Africa. The best part is everyone will get a chance to travel overseas too.

One of the choirs is currently in Germany and the talented singers got the opportunity to meet THE George Clooney! He was in attendance at their performance and as we can see, he only had smiles for the choir.

The choir performed for a major contributor to the Ndlovu Care Group, that being the Deutsche Postcode Lotterie and Hugo Tempelman Stiftung.

The Ndlovu choir is part of the Ndlovu Care Group’s globally acclaimed childcare community programme. The choir aims to ensure that a child from a disadvantaged community enjoys the same level of tuition, care and opportunities as a child from a more affluent society.

The Ndlovu Choir was established in January 2009 to afford talented, underprivileged teenagers and young adults (14-24 years) the opportunity to perform locally and abroad proficiently. The choir originally consisted of 30 choristers from the beautiful Moutse Valley in rural Limpopo, South Africa, however, the opportunity has seen many more youths join the ranks as the choir started a second group.
