The World Cup Rugby kicks off tonight and while we only get to see our guys in green and gold on Sunday, we are so excited! The Ndlovu Youth Choir released their version of World in Union today to get behind the Boks!


South Africa (08 September 2023) – The Ndlovu Youth Choir is gearing up to get behind the Springboks just like the rest of South Africa and to do so, they have released their cover of ‘World in Union’ by PJ Powers.

In 1995, PJ Powers performed the song live at the opening of the 1995 Rugby World Cup in Cape Town for a worldwide television audience. It was the year we won, the year we will never forget!

In 2019, the Drakensberg Boys Choir added their voice to the song, in anticipation for the World Cup which South Africa went on to win!

Seeing the song performed once again sends chills throughout our bodies. We are so excited to watch this World Cup and have so much faith that the Springboks will do us proud!

The world-famous choir took to their social pages yesterday, sharing that they planned to release their cover today.

“Tomorrow, we will be releasing our own version of the Rugby World Cup anthem, ‘World in Union’. This special rendition of the anthem was first performed at Ellis Park with the players of the 1995, 2007 and 2019 World Cup Winning squads. We are right behind Captain Siya Kolisi and his Springboks boys. Bring it home!”

It is safe to say that ‘World in Union’ is our rugby anthem. It is synonymous with victory, national pride and unity.

“Today the world 🌍 is in union as we celebrate the start of the #RWC2023. We are behind the Springboks in their quest to defend their crown and bring the trophy home – where it belongs!” – Ndlovu Youth Choir
