In other Jerusalema news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on a young wheelchair-bound woman who took on the #JerusalemaChallenge. A stunning young lady has not allowed her disability to get in the way of her passion.
Charne Hugo from Cape Town is wheelchair-bound but showed the nation and the world that she can still bust a move. 29-year-old Charne uploaded a video of herself using her arms, shoulders and wheelchair to dance to the global hit Jerusalema.
Charne has never allowed her wheelchair to define her as she has entered beauty pageants, singing competitions and enjoys scuba diving. Charne has entered both South Africa's Got Talent and Idols SA in a bid to further her singing career. She was also crowned Top Model South Africa 2020 earlier this year.
