The boys of Kearsney College Choir are back together after the lockdown and putting on new, colourful performances they are famous for.


KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (18 September 2020) – The choir released a hauntingly beautiful virtual performance of the traditional Zulu prayer ‘Avulekeli Amasango’, meaning ‘The gates of heaven have opened’ during lockdown and the performance gave us chills! Now they have a new one for us and they are back to putting on a show.

The multi-cultural Kearsney Choir won 15 Gold and 7 Silver medals at the World Choir Games last year (the Olympics for Choirs). Before lockdown, they were scheduled to compete at the World Choir Games in Belgium but that was cancelled due to the global pandemic.

The choir are happy to share their talents via video instead. The Kearsney choir is synonymous with vibrant, energetic performances and slick, professional productions.

The choir has developed a large international following, with its signature blend of classical, pop and indigenous music; and is committed to promoting the indigenous music of Africa.

Take a look at their performance of “Hello World (The World is Ours)” by Aloe Blacc. As the school said, this is the uplifting energy, promise and resilience of youth providing a wonderful tonic for us all during these difficult days.
