Just last week, the whole country was celebrating the amazing milestone that South Africa's Ndlovu Youth Choir reached on America's Got Talent.

Even though the young and talented ensemble did not win the competition, losing the title to Kodi Lee of California, we still celebrated because they did what many thought was impossible when they not only auditioned for AGT, but reached the finale.

They left a huge impression on all of us, including the American audience and the judges. But one judge  who is willing to take the choir to greater heights is Simon Cowell.

Speaking to 702's Joanne Josephs on the Afternoon Drive, choir director Ralf Schmitt confirmed that music mogul, Simon Cowell has offered them a recording deal.

"We are very excited that Simon Cowell and his company have exercised their option to sign the choir and together with Sony Music South Africa are working on exciting projects," Schmitt said.

The choir has been the talk of the town since making it big and on Monday, Thandi Moraka, Limpopo sport, arts and culture MEC, hosted a homecoming celebration for the group in which she awarded them a R1m cheque. Members of their community and government officials gathered at the Ndlovu Care Group Miracle Centre to welcome them.
