WC Draw: Closing Number

Found a lovely video of the closing number from the FIFA World Cup Draw yesterday (ignore the Korean commentary!).

The Choir performs with Tshepo Tshola following the Snake Dance from the Umoja cast.  A fun bit of information, but the lady reciting the poem at the beginning is Jessica Mbangeni; she is a former member of the Soweto Gospel Choir and is herald as South Africa’s best female Imbongi (praise poet).

Unfortunately, the video is no longer available to view.  If you have a copy of this video, please contact me.  Thanks!
