University Choir Enchants Passengers on Flight with Performance of Weeping by Bright Blue

Passengers on a flight were given a wonderful live performance when the Stellenbosch University Choir broke into song.

Corlie van Aswegen caught a beautiful moment on camera during her flight as the South African choir sang Weeping by Bright Blue.

Here’s the reddit version if you have difficulties viewing the Facebook version above.

Their conductor stands in the aisle and leads the singers in their impromptu performance.

Stellenbosch University Choir has approximately 80 to 100 singers and is one of the most celebrated in the country. They’ve earned numerous awards and performed all over the world.

The song ‘Weeping’ is significant for coming out at the end of Apartheid. It was written as a protest song by Bright Blue’s keyboard-player Dan Heymann and was voted as the “All-time Favourite South African Song” in 1999.

It has been famously covered by Josh Groben in 2006 with the help of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

This student choir’s performance reminds us of the time the cast of Lion King sang on a plane.
