In October 2017, Lyla caught the attention of the media back home after a video of her leading the South African National Anthem at an expat braai under the Brooklyn Bridge went viral. The story was featured on 947, Jacaranda FM, SA People and other popular websites.
As a result, a dream came true for Lyla when she was invited to sing the anthem for The Springboks when they faced Wales in Washington, DC on June 2nd, 2018. The match which took place at the 48 000-seater RFK stadium, was broadcast internationally. The story was covered on multiple radio stations and news outlets in South Africa, including The Sandton Chronicle and an exclusive interview with People Magazine South Africa.
