Eyewitness News reporter Thando Khubeka shares the latest from the choir's hometown.

South Africans are now waiting to hear whether or not the Ndlovu Youth Choir will win the America's Got Talent competition.

The youth from the village of Moutse in Limpopo are the first African group to advance to the finals of the talent show.

Eyewitness News reporter Thando Kubhkea spent some time in their home village to capture their story and some of the excitement around the group's achievement.

I spent the day at the Nlovu Youth Centre which was a hive of activity...

Their work has even attracted local business people who have come to donate to this non-profit organisation.
