AMAHLE Ntuli from Imbali Unit 15 is looking for R35 000 sponsorship to travel to Wales to compete in the Llangollen International Music Eisteddfod from July 3 to 9.

Ntuli is a member of the KZN Midlands Youth Choir that has been invited to the annual phenomena where choirs across the globe congregate and might also sing for the Queen Elizabeth.

Of the 17 songs that will be performed by the choir, Ntuli has been tasked to lead three African songs.

“This will be an opportunity for me to showcase my singing talent on a world stage.

“I have invested four years in my singing career, music is in my veins and I want to join the rest of the choir on this trip.”

The Grade 9 pupil at Alexandra High said he started singing for the Pietermaritzburg­ Children’s Choir and has backed musicians Dr Tumi, Nathi and Nkanyiso and Sbongiseni Mbhele. He also performed at Ukhozi FM’s 56th birthday anniversary.

“I joined the Midlands choir last year after going through an audition process, the choir has exposed me to many opportunities and it has helped me to express my feelings through music.”

He said the R35 000 will cover flights to and from Wales, accommodation, meals and travelling in Wales.

“I have approached local business people and the Department of Sport and Recreation for sponsorship but I have been unsuccessful in my quest.”

If you can assist Amahle, contact him on 079 334 8447 or 076 672 9349.
