In Late June, the first American National Netball Team went to South Africa to participate in the inaugural University World Netball Championships. As many of you know, Michael has been a huge supporter of Netball America and the team chose the fan favourite song, and Michael’s version of “River Of Life”, to be their USA team theme song!
During their visit to South Africa, the team visited the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls to give a netball demonstration and to inspire the young women at the school to follow their dreams.
In the following video, Sonya Ottaway, president of Netball America and friend of Michael, tells the beautiful and inspiring back story of “River Of Life”. The students and team sing along with Michael! What a wonderful experience for everyone and check out their gorgeous teeshirts!
So proud of the first American National Netball Team….congratulations and well done!!!
