Singing the traditional Zulu prayer Avulekile Amasango

In a previous video that went on to clock in over 30 000 views, the choir can be heard singing the traditional Zulu prayer Avulekile Amasango that was arranged by Ralf Schmitt (Kearsney Class of 2000). Last year, Schmitt became a household name in South Africa after he went on to reach the finals of America’s Got Talent with the now-famous Ndlovu Youth Choir.

The traditional prayer, that you can watch below, was also adapted by Kearsney Music Director Marshell Lombard.

About the Kearsney Choir

Back in 2018, the Kearsney College Choir returned home with two gold medals and one silver after a successful trip to the 10th World Choir Games. This competition, which is considered to be the world’s largest competition for non-professional choirs, is held every second year. Under the direction of Lombard, the choir competed in three categories in the champions section, winning golds in the Scenic Pop and Music of Spirit and Faith categories and silver in the Scenic Folklore category. With this win, the choir bagged 15 gold medals and seven silvers at the World Choir Games since 2000 in total.
