WATCH Jubilation at OR Tambo Airport as Ndlovu Youth Choir Returns Home to South Africa

Sjoe, grab a tissue and watch the return of the country’s new heroes – Ndlovu Youth Choir – who have been flying the South African flag high on the world’s biggest entertainment stage, America’s Got Talent, and inspiring South Africans’ spirits to soar at a particularly tough time in the country’s history.

Proud and grateful South Africans from around the country travelled to OR Tambo International Airport to welcome the young musicians from Limpopo home.

The band’s conductor Ralf Schmitt said the journey had shown that “if you give people a chance and an opportunity – they can shine, and be the best versions of themselves.”
