Jerusalema", the prayer that became a summer hit

Are you in the mood for an uplifting, lighthearted moment or two? 

Jerusalema is a prayer for the protection of Jerusalem in the Zulu language  which has evolved into a global "dance challenge".

The song was written in December 2019 by a 25 year old South African named Nomcebo Zikode. 

Check out the original and two of the dance challenge versions on YouTube:
