Ed Sheeran is headed to SA December 2 for the Global Citizen festival headlined by Beyoncé. And then he returns for his first tour next year, March 23 - 17.
The three shows are already sold out and if you're sad that you'll be missing out, this video will cheer you up. It's the Ndlovu Youth Choir together with Wouter Kellerman on the flute covering his famous track Shape Of You. The original is said to be one of the most streamed songs on Spotify.
And this version is so happymaking.
Who are these talented young women with so much passion?
Started in 2009, Ndlovu Youth Choir sing "Afro-pop classics to South African traditional music as a professional music ensemble.
Information below the Youtube video says that, "the members are selected by audition from the young people from the Ndlovu Care Group, a community program providing healthcare, early childhood education, after-school activities, and more to rural Moutse, Limpopo, South Africa.
"Program directors find that, because of the time commitment of the choir, as well as the values of self-discipline, self- confidence, and leadership that participation imbues, choristers have lower rates of drug use, delinquency, and teen pregnancy than their peers."
We can totally get behind that.
And has Ed Sheeran heard it yet?
We really think someone should organise that they join him on stage when he's here this year or next?!
