Ndlovu Youth Choir will sing National Anthem at the Hollywoodbets Durban July

Durban - The Hollywoodbets Durban July is thrilled to announce the internationally acclaimed Ndlovu Youth Choir will be performing the national anthem at this year's event on July 1.

The choir's captivating and soul-stirring performances have earned them worldwide recognition and their participation promises to elevate the excitement and grandeur of "Africa’s Greatest Horseracing Event" to new heights.

The Hollywoodbets Durban July, known for its fusion of fashion, entertainment and horseracing, attracts thousands of attendees from across the country. This year's event, taking place on Saturday, July 1, at the Hollywoodbets Greyville racecourse in Durban, promises to be an unforgettable experience for all.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir, hailing from a small town in Limpopo, shot to fame during their awe-inspiring run on America's Got Talent, where they captivated audiences with their uplifting performances and infectious energy. Since then, they have gained a massive international following, becoming South Africa’s ambassadors for the spirit of unity and hope.

Stephen Marshall, Gold Circle’s Marketing and Events Executive is excited to have the Ndlovu Youth Choir on board.

“Singing the National Anthem before the running of the Hollywoodbets Durban July has become a tradition, and to have Ndlovu Youth Choir, who have been such an inspiration to so many South Africans, performing live at Africa’s greatest horseracing and social event is sure to be an iconic moment, not to be missed,” said Marshall.

Devin Heffer, Hollywoodbets Brand and Communications Manager, says the inclusion of the Ndlovu Youth Choir adds another proudly South African element to the raceday programme.

“The Hollywoodbets Durban July 2023 will once again provide a platform for showcasing South Africa's rich heritage, fashion and entertainment, all while celebrating the sport of horseracing." said Heffer. "The addition of the trailblazing Ndlovu Youth Choir to the event's line-up is a testament to our commitment to delivering an exceptional and “Out Of This World” experience to attendees.”

A spokesperson for the Ndlovu Youth Choir said they were honoured to be part of the famous event.

“To be part of such a momentous occasion is an honour for us. The Hollywoodbets Durban July is an event that is steeped in history and brings South Africans together in an amazing calabash of fashion, flair, colour and horseracing. It will be a day to remember and we are proud to be a part of it."

The Ndlovu Youth Choir, known for their unique blend of African rhythms, with a varied mix of traditional South African genres with pop, rock, jazz and EDM, promises an unforgettable performance that will leave the audience enthralled. Their dynamic harmonies, vibrant choreography and heartfelt performances have garnered acclaim on some of the world's biggest stages.
