Limpopo, South Africa (12 January 2023) – The Ndlovu Youth Choir has been invited back to America’s Got Talent this year, and we are so excited! They have been included in America’s Got Talent (AGT) All-Stars Show which will highlight 60 acts from around the world.
The choir members are very excited to head back to the stage that gave them global recognition and went on to change every single one of their lives.
“With more than 70 local versions of “Got Talent” produced across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas, “AGT: All-Stars” brings together the most beloved and memorable contestants from across the globe for one of the toughest competitions yet. The best of the best will return to the stage to showcase their talent.” – Simon Cowell
They travelled to America to audition for America’s Got Talent 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.
When hearing about the second opportunity to compete on AGT, we thought it would be nice to look back at their audition from 2019.
Take a look at the choir’s 2019 audition below. We loved watching it again, it brought tears to our eyes! As soon as the 2023 audition is released, we will be sure to share it with you.
The choir forms part of a more significant project which started in 1994. The Ndlovu Care Group was founded in 1994 by a Dutch doctor named Dr Hugo Templeman, in the rural village of Moutse, Limpopo. The care group provides innovative healthcare, childcare, education and community development to the area.
The Ndlovu Youth Choir was created in 2009 and has since, profoundly affected the lives of the young members. The choir demonstrates the potential of any human being when given a chance to achieve excellence no matter their background, education or place of birth. The youth choir has grown from humble beginnings to the incredible ensemble it is today.
The choir has taken these young South Africans from the rural streets of Moutse to an international stage to show off their amazing talent, and we cannot wait to see what else they have in store for the world!
Best of luck Ndlovu Youth Choir! You are going to make South Africa so proud.
