More amazing music news
In music news closer to home, the Ndlovu Youth Choir recently dazzled South Africa with their incredible rendition of Shallow, giving the pop song an unquestionably African flare.
A short clip of the performance has since gone viral on social media. The youthful singers took to the beautiful beaches of Cape Town to perform the song first popularised by international musician Lady Gaga.
The touching song has been completely translated into the mother-tongue of the singers but the emotion in the music is certainly not lost on us non-Xhosa speakers.
