Make Way -Thursday Challenge
For Pat's challenge regarding space.
Shosholoza, a traditional miner's song, was originally sung by men of the Ndebele ethnic group that worked in South Africa's diamond and gold mines. The call-and-response style song expressed the hardship of working in the mines. As a sign of encouragement and solidarity, the word Shosholoza or "chocholoza!" means “go forward” or “make way for the next man.”
Mrs. Bronaugh, the choir director, chose Brian to sing the solo of the African folk song for the Fall Chorus Concert in 2011. The crowd silenced and sat in awe as a young, unassuming teenage boy filled the air with the strong, confident calls of the melody and the chorus responded in harmonious kind. In three minutes my son, my boy in eighth grade, transformed into a singer...a leader...a man. At the end of the rendition, an explosion of cheers, applause, and standing ovations confirmed the excellence of the performance. One woman even predicted that Brian would one day be President!
Shosholoza became a favorite of the chorus and they sang it at every engagement. However, Brian’s voice soon deepened so he “made way for the next man,” passing his solo on to another student.
