CAPE TOWN – The Ndlovu Youth Choir’s performance at the finals of _America’s Got Talent _will leave you teary-eyed and beaming with pride.
The choir, which sings in all 11 South African languages, had the crowd and judges dancing this morning when they performed Africa by American band Toto.
Shortly after their performance, the group took to social media and called on people to vote for them. Voting, however, is restricted to the United States. The winner will be announced later tonight and South Africans can catch that live on Thursday morning from 2am.
“Tonight we were proud young ambassadors of a united world. We just performed in the grand finale at America's Got Talent! Help us end our incredible AGT journey on a high, we need your vote,” the post read.
