The two-time Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir has been spreading sheer joy to audiences across the globe for nearly two decades! Hailing from the town of Soweto (South West Township, a town south west of Johannesburg which is now home to 1.5 million) and the birthplace of South Africa’s democratic movement's struggle for freedom, Soweto Gospel Choir continues to inspire audiences around the world with their powerful blend of African gospel, freedom songs, and international classics. Comprised of 20 of the best artists in South Africa, these uplifting performers have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music including U2, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Josh Groban. In this uplifting and joyous repertoire, The Choir will perform a rousing program celebrating the life of the father of their Rainbow Nation, Nelson Mandela and international gospel classics including a spine-tingling take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and an extraordinary rendition of “Amazing Grace” which has had over 15 million views on YouTube.
