The Ndlovu Youth Choir from Limpopo drew a standing ovation after last night’s moving performance on the world’s biggest talent show, America’s Got Talent.
Judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough were full of praise for the choir following a stirring rendition of Vicky Sampson’s ‘African Dream.’
“We’ve always been waiting for a choir like this, something we’ve never heard before. Your energy was literally bouncing off to me right there, it was great. You, I’m going to remember,” Cowell said.
Emotional choir director Ralf Schmitt shared that the kids come from one of the South Africa’s most impoverished communities and manage to uplift themselves.
For many of the kids, this was their first time travelling to the US and they all revelled in the moment.
The choir said they are humbled by the messages of support.
