Amazing South African youth choir wows US celebrity judges

A South African youth choir, set up to help young people boost their confidence, has made it through to the live television rounds of the US talent show America’s Got Talent.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir, from a rural part of Limpopo province, performed their take on Shakira’s version of the song Waka Waka, famously performed by a Cameroonian group called Zangalewa.

“Art and music are the greatest ambassadors for any country and you guys – it’s an amazing thing, it’s beautiful,” one of the judges, Brad Paisley, said.

The choir have been tweeting about making it through to the next round:
