The wait starts now for the South African group. The winner will be announced later tonight South African time.
The Ndlovu Youth Choir took the stage at the grand finale of “America’s Got Talent” and wowed viewers on Tuesday.
For their final performance, the Limpopo based choir did an arrangement of Toto’s song “Africa”.
Speaking to Jacaranda FM following their performance, the conductor of the choir, Ralf Schmitt, said that their unique opening to the song was written by one of the choristers.
