Our South African national anthem, Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika, was named the best national anthem in the world by The Economist at the end of 2018.
The Anthem Project received over 140 submissions. The project team described how “each video captured what makes this country so great – its people.” They also thanked all South Africans for their involvement, “whether you submitted a video yourself, shared the spirit on social media or simply casted a vote, thank you for playing your part in uniting our nation through song.”
The entries officially closed on the 19th of April and three finalists were announced today. We are ecstatic to see our partner, the Ndlovu Youth Choir listed as one of the finalists alongside Michael House and the Genesis Trust.
We need you to help us and vote for The Ndlovu Youth Choir’s version of the Anthem as your favourite, so that they can get the chance to donate a share of R1 million to their charity of choice!
Cast your vote here and remember to share it to gain extra votes for the choir.
2019 has been an awesome jam-packed year for the choir. Their energy and amazing voices continue to bring joy to people all over world. Their journey continues and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for them.
