Anele, Lindelani And Rebecca Return To Judge The Second Season Of Clash Of The Choirs

The triple powerplay judging panel of Anele Mdoda, Lindelani Mkhize and Rebecca Malope return to Mzansi Magic’s Clash of the Choirs SA in its new season. The show, which was won by Khaya Mthethwa’s handpicked 20-piece choir from KwaZulu-Natal in 2013, gets underway on Mzansi Magic from Sunday, 13 April .

Already the choirmasters have been scouting the land for the voices that will make their choir’s harmonies rise above the rest. The choirmasters for 2014 are Liquideep’s Ziyon, Malaika’s Tshedi, HHP, Robbie Malinga, Moneoa, Simphiwe Dana and Lebogang 'Shugasmakx' Mothibe.
“We are thrilled that Anele, Lindelani and Rebecca are back for a second season of Clash of the Choirs SA,” says M-Net Local Interest Channel director, Nkateko Mabaso. 
“Their contribution during Season 1 produced some classic moments, and provided an invaluable opportunity for talented singers to work with the best in our industry.”
At this early stage of the competition, it’s always hard to know just which choir will win over the judges.

But if the first season of Clash of the Choirs SA is anything to go by, when it comes to emotional performances Anele Mdoda is the judge who will be most affected - especially after the tears that flowed from the 94.7 Highveld Stereo Afternoon Drive presenter during some performances in 2013.

Those choirs that are able to really work their technical side are likely to win the favour of Lindelani Mkhize, whose has been the force behind the successful careers of many South African artists, spanning across a wide spectrum of genres.

Perhaps harder to predict is Rebecca Malope – herself one of Gospel music’s most emotional performers as part of an unrivalled, award-winning career. The Queen of Gospel certainly kept viewers on the edge of their seats during Season 1 with her quirky comments, but Malope was also quick to show her motherly, nurturing side to all the contestants.

The judges will monitor every note sung by the choirs in the running looking for the most polished and nurtured voices as they are taken through their paces by their celebrity choirmasters. Only three choirs can secure a place in the final spectacular live show where South Africa votes for their favourite amateur choir.

M-Net's Mzansi Magic’s Clash of the Choirs SA is presented by the popular social media Queen B, Bonang Matheba, catching the eye of the trio of heavyweight judges and the South African music industry as a whole. The reality music show sponsored by Metropolitan has a R750 000 prize up for grabs (R500 000 for the choir and R250 000 for the charity of their choice).

Clash of the Choirs SA airs on Mzansi Magic, channel 161 on DStv from Sunday, 13 April at 17:30.
