The Ndlovu Youth Choir have inspired the world with their story and their talent; now we get to watch them perform one last time on America’s Got Talent.
Johannesburg, South Africa – After weeks of cheering for the Ndlovu Choir on, the show has come to an end. Our incredible Ndlovu Youth Choir made South Africans across the globe, as proud as can be.
The Ndlovu Youth Choir believes that if you can dream it, you can do it. And for their final performance, the choir puts Limpopo on the map by singing “Africa” by Toto.
Before we get to their final, show-stopping performance, we thought we would take a walk down memory lane and share some of our favourite moments.
Our love for the choir started in October 2018, when they did an isiZulu rendition of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’. The song gave us chills, and we held our fingers and toes that Ed (a regular visitor to Africa) would see it and invite them to his show. He didn’t, but our love was cemented.
In December 2018, we wrote a story about the choir’s rendition of our national anthem. The impressive performance was part of the Anthem Project hosted by OUTsurance and News24. The choir didn’t win, but this performance was yet another that earned a place in our hearts!
Then in 2019, the choir were stuck on a grounded plane and decided to break out into song. The video was filmed by a fellow passenger who said he felt so much love for South Africa after hearing the choir sing during a frustrating time.
After that video went viral, the South African public’s love for the choir grew. It became evident that the choir was going places so when we announced in March of this year that they had plans to audition for America’s Got Talent, you, our readers, couldn’t wait to see their first audition.
Their audition video was released by America’s Got Talent in June of 2019, and South Africans were left in tears! They sang their rendition of “My African Dream” by Vicky Sampson. The choir had the judges on their feet, they earned a standing ovation from the audience, and the judges gave them high praise.
They had a message for the world, just because you are born into poverty; it doesn’t mean you are poverty. Their success throughout the show has become a beacon for every child across the globe, showing that no matter what, you can be anything you dream of being!
The choir has taken these young South Africans from the rural streets of Moutse to an international stage to show off their amazing talents!
Now after many outstanding performances, the choir performed in America’s Got Talent final show. Results are not out yet but we cannot express just how proud they have made us over the last few months.
