The Blessing (South Africa)

A choir from South Africa singing of the blessings of God

During the April 2020 lockdown, people from across South Africa united to sing a blessing over their nation. Their song is a message hope and peace, and an encouragement to keep going through difficult and trying times. Throughout the lockdown choirs from many different countries have been singing this song in many different languages – uniting God’s family all over the world.
