    South Africa’s beloved choir is always certainly the future of our beloved country. The Ndlovu Youth Choir is constantly on the go, travelling to various countries raising the South African flag high.

    They recently covered the Barbadian singer and founder of Savage x Fenty’s song and it was met with a lot of love and paraise on YouTube as they sang the song at Moutse Valley in Limpopo.

    The popular song marks the return of the singer’s first solo single in five years. Lift Me Up is a tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman who played King T’Challa in the original Black Panther.

    The actor sadly died of colon cancer at the 43 years of age.

    The video on YouTube received a lot of praise and some of the comments to the video included:

    “Every single performance is soul stirring. You never fail to bring tears to my eyes. I recently had the privilege of watching your show at Montecasino. You guys make me so proud to be South African,” one viewer commented.

    “So may layers in every song this choir touches. Superb as usual. Angelic,” another one added.

    It’s safe to say this choir’s future is brighter than ever.
