The Ndlovu Youth Choir have become a popular group, wowing South Africans with their talents, now they are wowing an international audience.
United States – 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.
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.
CnandCo teamed up with the choir in October last year and are overjoyed at far they are making it. Considering they have travelled from rural Limpopo to America’s Got Talent stage is proof of their talent and dedication.
“We wish the choir the very best for their audition and let’s stand behind this proudly South African initiative as they continue to show us the power of music, passion and diversity.”
We can’t wait to see their audition video when it airs, holding thumbs for our proudly South African youth choir!
