South Africa’s Ndlovu Youth Choir delivered another top performance last night at America’s Got Talent (AGT) 2019, earning a standing ovation from the crowd and all four judges!

AGT said afterwards: “It’s impossible not to feel inspired as Ndlovu Youth Choir bring a Higher Love to Semifinals. 💕”

Back home in South Africa the thrill of watching the choir from Limpopo bring joy to the world has been a welcome relief “amid the ashes and sadness”.

Joburg publicist Georg Knoke said: “WOW! This is what we as South Africans needed – to cheer us up as a nation – following three days of mayhem, violence and looting in the streets of South Africa! Not a dry eye when watching this – take a hankie! Bravo and encore (Choir Director) Ralf Schmitt! You’re making MAGIC! Holding thumbs for the next round!”

Schmitt tweeted a few days ago that the performance – a spin on “Higher Love” by Whitney Houston and Kygo’s Steve Winwood – was going to be a “celebration of African talent, excellence and love! 🇿🇦”. And it was! Watch below (and if you’re in the US or know anyone who is, please VOTE and tell every American you know!).
