Hollywood, United States – Never having entered a talent competition, the Ndlovu Youth Choir accomplished several firsts with their trip to America. They have a message for every child living in rural parts of the world.

In 2018, the Ndlovu Youth Choir performed an isiZulu cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” during an interview on Jacaranda’s breakfast show. Since then, they have been doing some incredible things. Most recently, they travelled to America to go audition for America’s Got Talent.

Their audition went viral and had many South Africans in tears with their beautiful performance. It had everyone bubbling with pride. If you missed it, you can watch the audition here.

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 names Dr Hugo Templeman, in the rural village of Moutse, Limpopo.

The care group provides innovative healthcare, childcare, education and community development. 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.

After their breathtaking audition, four of the ensemble did an interview with America’s Got Talent and discussed what it was like searching for opportunities despite coming from rural South Africa.

They have an inspiring message for people across the globe. They hope to inspire every child to follow their dreams. “The sky is the limit”.
