The Drakensberg Boys Choir is giving the nation goosebumps again. This time the famous South African school choir has posted a moving video tribute to healthcare workers around the world “for their selfless humanity in this very difficult time”.

Watch below as the Choir brilliantly and aptly performs an ovation-worthy cover of Queen’s “We Are The Champions”. Some of the filming took place at Milpark Private Hospital in Johannesburg, as well as at the school in Cathkin Park, Champagne Valley, KZN.

The school’s English teacher, Pamela Couzyn, told SAPeople the video is “a salutary reminder that we still need to honour our frontline workers, from our lovely boys”.

Unfortunately there will be no ovations in the near future for the boys, as South Africa battles to contain the Delta variant, and the country has today entered an adjusted Alert Level 4.


“Sadly, no concerts for us anytime soon, which hurts the fragile economic model of our school,” says Pamela. “Despite being a SA brand icon since 1967, we do not receive state funding. Hope we, along with all who are similarly afflicted, manage to survive and rise from the ashes.”
