Upperhill High school Choir Shine again
19 August 2016, 19:40
Nairobi - The first time we heard the Upperhill High
school choir sing, we knew they were destined for great things.
They broke into
the limelight with their cover of Sauti Sols gospel tune ‘Kuliko Jana’, which
they executed so well that Bien, Savara, Polycarp and Chimano had to go visit
They followed that up with Amos and Josh’s Baadaye, Eric Wainaina’s Daima
and now Nearer My God to Thee by Sarah Flower Adams.
The hymn is based loosely on Genesis
28:11-19, the story of Jacobs dream.
The high schoolers have redone it so well
to the point that I think they have made it better than the original ever was,
mixing the English version with Swahili.
You don’t need to be a music expect to
know that these boys are onto something here and could very easily translate
this into a life changing career.
