At ten years old, Jean-Philip Grobler was a part of history. Along with the rest of the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir, he found himself on the field of Cape Town’s Newlands Stadium in his native South Africa, singing the national anthem in front of Nelson Mandela (and the entire country) at the opening of the 1995 rugby World Cup. Depicted in the film Invictus, starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, the matches represented South Africa’s first international play since the fall of apartheid, as well as Mandela’s ambitious plan for uniting a deeply divided nation.
