Every couple of years, choirs from all over the world gather to celebrate the World Choir Games. This year 16,000 singers from 300 choirs, hailing from 60 countries have descended on Tshwane, South Africa for the 10th World Choir Games.
Although not crowned World Champions, one of the top performances in the Scenic Pop Category came from KwaZulu-Natal’s Kearsney College… and is a hot favourite on social media, currently going more viral than the other videos. (Watch below.) Kearsney competed in three categories and won two Golds and one silver.
