Mzansi Youth Choir usher in Christmas spirit

The Mzansi Youth Choir are known best for their ability to light up the spirit of any event. They have been widely regarded as the life of any occasion they are booked for.

After a show in Ontario, Canada, The Stratford Beacon Herald, an international publication, had nothing but praise for the choir.

“The joyous rhythms of the Mzansi Youth Choir are without a doubt a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Stratford. These singers are the best of the best,” the publication said, in high praise.

On tonight’s show, we will witness the greatness that is the Mzansi Youth Choir as they perform our favourite Christmas carols at Melrose Arch in Johannesburg.

Find inspiration in Grant Lottering’s story

Grant Lottering is a cyclist-turned-motivational speaker. This is because, after conquering the impossible, he felt it was a calling for him to impart his wisdom onto people who need it to get through their own adversities.

Lottering has faced death in the eye and, unlike most, he came out alive and has since done phenomenal things in his life.

Winning the Laureus Sport for Good Ambassador award was an achievement but not as meaningful for him as conquering the French Alp (a 1 000 kilometer course) in under 50 hours.

Tonight, Lottering will sit down with Derek Watts to impart some of the things he has learned sitting on top of the world and how he had to dig deep to make it out of the darkness he was enclosed in.

Nonhlanhla Joye, Kwa-Zulu Natal’s Mother Theresa

It was certainly over for Nonhlanhla Joye. At least that is what the medical books said. Joye was diagnosed with a devastating type of cancer that many do not overcome.

However, Joye’s resilience saw her overcome the illness. This must have motivated her to dedicate her life to helping others. Sure enough, her portable, eco-friendly gardening system allows her to harvest organic vegetables that help feed communities in Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Digital innovation gives the partially blind eyes to see

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a central part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Everything is automated right now and as scary as that is for the sustainability of the human race, it also comes with its positives.

One such positive is found in the sphere of optometry. Devi Sankaree Govender, on tonight’s show, will visit an institute that has developed specialised eyewear, fit with AI, that allows partially blind patients to see in incredible detail.
