Cape Town – A South African choir from Limpopo had the audience on their feet after their performance on America's Got Talent.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir who hails from a small town in the province have been performing together for ten years.

For many of the kids, this was their first time travelling to the US.

Choir director Ralf Schmitt shared that the kids come from one of the most impoverished communities and manage to uplift themselves.

"To see them standing on the stage of America's Got Talent tonight you can't help but burst with pride," he said

The choir delivered a soul-stirring rendition of Vicky Sampson's song, African Dream.

Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough had high praise for the choir.

"We've always been waiting for a choir like this, something we've never heard before. Your energy was literally bouncing off to me right there, it was great. You, I'm going to remember," said Simon.

The Ndlovu choir got four yeses from the judges which means they move on to the next round.
