Clash of the Choirs is about more than just weekly epic showcasing of vocal prowess. It's about more than pitch perfect harmonies and tight choreography. It's about taking the lives of ordinary South Africans from all walks of life and giving them an opportunity to live out their dreams. People who have faced adversities and overcome them, some fighting demons in the bravest way possible. People like you and me.

People like Sinobom Vasi, a spunky lass from the Eastern Cape whose strong personality hides the fact that she was bullied as a child. People like Nomzangwa, who has contended with an ailing father and an abusive marriage. Both ladies used music to help heal them. Bucie paid them a visit ahead of the studio clashes. Watch what happened below:



Gauteng choirmaster Kelly Khumalo visited two of her choir members, Neo and Siyabonga. Neo was so determined to seize her chance to be part of Team Kelly that she traveled all the way from the Free State to Gauteng, not too sure where she was going. She arrived at the audition venue the afternoon before the day of the audition and spent the night at the audition venue, in the cold. But it paid off, since she was the first person to audition in front of Kelly, and the first to be given a Metropolitan blue ticket. Watch her tell her story below:
