- The DHL Stomers rugby team performed a wonderful rendition of Johnny Clegg’s smash hit ‘The Crossing’
- They were joined by other singers and celebs in a beautiful music video
- The collaboration was done prior to the nationwide lockdown, but recently started trending
The DHL Stomers rugby team pulled off a memorable collaboration with some star-studded friends.
The large group combined to perform a lovely rendition of the Johnny Clegg smash hit ‘The Crossing’.
The music video recently started trending and starts off with an introduction from coach John Dobson.
Dobson can be heard saying, "Choosing to learn the song of an iconic South African, taking our players out of their comfort zones and encouraging them to celebrate our diversity through music has been incredibly powerful."
The players team up with local singers such as former Idols winner Paxton Fielies and Freshly Ground lead singer Zolani Mahola.
Francois van Coke makes a cameo appearance as well. Briefly.co.za was surprised to see comedian Marc Lottering belting some impressive notes as well.
The collaboration pays homage to the late Johnny Clegg, who passed away last year.
TimesLIVE reported that 'The Crossing' was elected as the team song and was sung regularly in the change room after matches.
Although the song has been trending this week, it was actually performed at the beginning of March.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported on the tribute concert where Mzansi artists like Lira, Black Coffee, the Soweto Gospel Choir, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse and Francois van Coke would be performing.
