South Africa - On Sunday 25 April, Jerusalema hitmaker Master KG, and the Ndlovu Youth Choir, will be performing live on Robben Island for Africa Rising and the Live Love non-profit, along with international personality Maps Maponyane as master of ceremonies.
The performance will be live streamed for free and audiences will have the opportunity to win an exclusive VIP experience at the event on Robben Island by making an online donation of at least R30, benefiting the music and events industry, and charities in sustainability, education and conservation.
Africa Rising brings music and travel to the world by telling inspiring African stories through uniquely produced music experiences. These are brought to life by broadcasting live performances by Africa’s biggest artists, set in the most iconic locations on the continent. Through these stories and our platform, we aim to raise money to invest back into the industries decimated during the pandemic, and into African communities that desperately need it.
Master KG is a South African musician and record producer and his album Skeleton Move achieved acclaim including an AFRIMMA Award for Best Artist/Group in the African Electro category. He is also known as the pioneer of Bolobedu dance
The Ndlovu Youth Choir’s run on America’s Got Talent (season 14) made them the first choir in the history to reach the final. Their soul-stirring performances won hearts and minds around the world. Their first album debuted at number one on iTunes.
During the coronavirus crisis the choir continued to offer hope and inspiration with their enthusiastic COVID-19 musical public service messages which were shared by the WHO and the United Nations. They joined many of the world’s top A-list performers on a virtual stage when they were featured during the Global Citizens One World: Together at Home virtual concert.
‘We would like to honour all the theatres, venues, technical providers & events companies that ensure every show is a magical experience. We trust that our performance at Africa Rising will encourage you and give you hope that we will rise,” says Ralf Schmitt, musical director of the Ndlovu Youth Choir.
