The Ndlovu Youth Choir is the gift that keeps on giving! The group have done a proudly South African version of Lady Gaga’s “Shallow”, and it is goosebumps-worthy!


Cape Town, South Africa (04 June 2021) – The world fell in love with the story of “A Star is Born”, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, back in 2018. To this day, “Shallow”, sung by Gaga and Cooper, is a firm favourite on the radio and now the Ndlovu Youth Choir of giving the song their own flare.

The song was done for their album ‘Rise’, and they have now released an accompanying music video that will give you goosebumps.

On ‘Shallow’, the infectious energy of this 30-strong choir, ranging in age from 14 – 24 from the beautiful Moutse Valley in rural Limpopo, is clear. The choir, well known for their soul-stirring renditions of well-known covers, re-interpret this beautiful single with their own unique style, feel and breath-taking harmonies.

“For us as a choir, it is important that each project we take on has a strong focus on not only the performance aspect, but that it is an opportunity for us to upskill all our choristers where we can. We’re excited with the new direction the choir is taking in not only being a performing arts organisation but now also working in the writing space, creating new and original song content. – Ralf Schmitt, Artistic Director of Ndlovu Youth Choir
