Their performance of Toto’s hit Africa left the crowd in awe, but it was not enough to secure a place in the top five.

However, they did get the chance to perform with US rapper Macklemore and Norwegian DJ Kygo alongside the other youth choir in the competition, Detroit Youth Choir.

The choir say they are not discouraged that they did not win, but rather, they are excited for what the future holds.

“We are so excited for what lies ahead and we look forward to continuing sharing love, unity and above all hope,” they said on their Twitter page.

One thing is for sure – the Ndlovu Youth Choir will always be winners in the hearts of South Africans and they have not only placed Limpopo on the map, but they have made the province and the country proud.
