The theme for the Top 9 performances for the next Live Show will be 'Inspirational Songs' – and to help our hopefuls do more with their performances will be musical guests, the 121 Selah Choir. They are an inspiring music band made up of several individuals led by PD Wallson. Africa got to witness their great style of singing when they featured in the second season of the Old Mutual Amazing Voices competition.
The competition was made up of different groups of singers from five African countries namely; Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Ghana and South Africa who sang with the aim of winning an amazing $100,000 to kick start a professional music career.
They were the first to win the ‘Golden Voice Award’ on the show, an award which is given to the group that gives the best performance for each show night. However, they eventually lost the main title to South African group ‘Hush’.
121 Selah has however continued to grow and has garnered quite a following for themselves on social media. Coincidentally, one of the members of the group Remii had auditioned for Nigerian Idol and made it to Top 35 but unfortunately could not make it to Top 12.
We can’t wait to see how their famous harmonies and arrangement give life to the Top 9 performances come Sunday.
