Standing ovation for SA's Ndlovu Youth Choir on 'America's Got Talent'!”

The Ndlovu Youth Choir from South Africa gave such an wonderful and heartfelt performance on America's Got Talent last night.

Their rendition of "My African Dream", conducted by choir director Ralf Schmitt, composed by SA-born Alan Lazar, aired on USA television on Tuesday night.

The group took to their Twitter account to express their excitement about the responses they've received to their video. You showcased the beauty of that you represent and you're giving so much hope, I can't thank you enough, thank you "said Union". If you remember, we had them singing the Zulu version of Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" a while back. "Thank you!", said judge and actress Gabrielle Union.

"We've been waiting for a choir like this... your energy was bouncing off me".

Since its inception in 2009, the Ndlovu Youth Choir has been part of the Ndlovu Care Group's globally acclaimed childcare community programme and the choir aims to ensure that a child from a disadvantaged community enjoys the same level of musical tuition, care and opportunities as a child from a more affluent society.

So far, their audition clocked in over one million views on YouTube.

Numerous choir members are orphans who have to look after their siblings after their parents have passed away.

Earlier this year, the Ndlovu Youth Choir recently teamed up with South African flautist, Wouter Kellerman to film their isiZulu cover of Ed Sheeran's hit song "Shape of You".
