Choir conductor Ralf Schmitt says they have a lot of projects lined up including a partnership with Sony Music.

They may have not won America's Got Talent competition but the Ndlovu Youth Choir have won the hearts of many South Africans.

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

But, California's Kodi Lee was crowned the season 14 winner.

Ndlovu Your Choir revealed on Thursday that they have landed a deal with music and television mogul Simon Cowell.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph, the choir members say they are very grateful for the exposure and now everyone will know where they come from.

I am really proud of how far we have come as a choir.

Thulisile Masanabo, Ndlovu Youth Choir member

Choir member Sandile Majola says they did not expect to see so many people at OR Tambo International Airport when they arrived back from the competition.

We knew our families would be there but not the whole of South Africa.

Sandile Majola, Ndlovu Youth Choir member

We are very excited that Simon Cowell and his company have exercised their option to sign the choir and together with Sony Music in South Africa are working on exciting projects.

Ralf Schmitt, Conductor - Ndlovu Youth Choir

It is a wonderful compliment to these young people because he wouldn't do that if he didn't think there is a future for them and the work they have done.
