The Ndlovu Youth Choir performers have embraced their inner Dolly and put on a stunning cover of her iconic song “Jolene”.


Moutse, Limpopo (30 April 2020) – Dolly Parton released Jolene in 1974, and it was a massive hit that has become a classic. Everyone knows the song but hearing it sung by the Ndlovu Youth Choir; we are left with chills. Now it is all we can sing; the song is on repeat!

The Ndlovu Youth Choir have been busy since their return home from America’s Got Talent. The choir have been working on music, and this cover is just one of may to come.

The Ndlovu Choir was established in January 2009 with the aim of affording talented, underprivileged teenagers and young adults (14-24 years) the opportunity to perform locally and abroad proficiently. The choir consists of 30 choristers from the beautiful Moutse Valley in rural Limpopo, South Africa.

The Ndlovu choir is part of the Ndlovu Care Group’s globally acclaimed childcare community programme. The choir aims to ensure that a child from a disadvantaged community enjoys the same level of tuition, care and opportunities as a child from a more affluent society.

Since their rise to fame, the choir has left many South Africans with smiles and pride. Their performances are fantastic! The last one we shared was their song about washing your hands and how we will beat the Coronavirus.

With tomorrow being a holiday, put the volume up, go outside for some sunshine, dance-along and enjoy their latest song.
