Johannesburg, South Africa – October 2018 saw a beautiful collab between flautist Wouter Kellerman and the Ndlovu Youth Choir. Together they performed an isiZulu version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’.

We shared the happy news about their award nomination on the 11th of October and now we can proudly say that the Ndlovu Youth Choir and Wouter Kellerman have won!

The ‘Shape of You’ music video by South African flautist and Grammy winner Wouter Kellerman and the Ndlovu Youth Choir, has been won in the Independent Music Video category ahead of the 2019 Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

“Fantastic news!! We just heard we won the HMMA (Hollywood Music in Media Award) with the Ndlovu Youth Choir for ‘Best Independent Music Video’ for our Zulu version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’” – Wouter Kellerman

It’s been an exciting rollercoaster trip for Ndlovu Youth Choir and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon!

The talented choir shot to global fame during their time on America’s Got Talent, but the Ndlovu Youth Choir first caught the attention of the world when they performed an isiZulu cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” during an interview on Jacaranda’s breakfast show.

We are so proud of both the choir and Wouter, may this award bring them many more opportunities to inspire with their music.
