The Ndlovu Youth Choir is back with yet another inspiring video.

Just weeks after releasing their version of Jingle Jangle's The Square Root of Possible and their A Million Dreams cover with P!NK, the group have now given us their rendition of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You

The music video for the track was filmed in the choir's hometown of Moutse, Limpopo and "tells the story of a lonely Gogo who is heartbroken at the prospect of spending Christmas alone," a press statement explains.

"When all of a sudden, she [Gogo] hears the familiar sounds of 'All I Want for Christmas' and looks out her window to find her grandson and his friends have transformed her garden into a wonderland of lights and music and merriment. She is overjoyed as she receives the best gift of the season: a reminder that no matter what life throws at us, we will always have each other."

As with all of their covers, the group gives the song that magical Nldovu Youth Choir twist, singing: "All I want for Christmas is you, Gogo."

A message at the end of the video reads: "Make this Christmas special for those at risk this year. Stay safe and reach out with love, care and a song of kindness."
