Other fan favourites include: “The Greatest Showman” and their unique spin on “Jerusalema”, the global hit by fellow Limpopo artist Master KG, that has taken the world by storm.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir, which started in 2009, has been on an incredible eleven-year journey that has seen them transform from an after-school programme for orphaned and vulnerable children to an internationally renowned group, touring the world and recording songs.

Through the choir, choristers gain a global perspective that offers an early pathway to artistic and professional achievement.

The choir uses their talents to share their inspirational story with the world through song and dance.

The choir’s repertoire is an exciting mix of traditional South African genres with pop, rock, jazz and EDM.

“We Will Rise” will be staged at Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace, from Friday, October 30, until Sunday, November 1.

Tickets are available at Quicket from R100.
