An exhilarating super-choir filling venues with JOY

With two Grammys, an Emmy, and many other prestigious awards, Soweto Gospel Choir has taken the international music world by storm, packing leading concert halls worldwide since its establishment in 2002. Over the years, the choral sensation has shared the stage with star singers such as Bono, Diana Ross, John Legend and Celine Dion while those attending performances have included Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and the British royal family.

The Choir, famed for its members’ soaring voices, comprises the best vocalists from churches in and around Soweto, the largest black township in South Africa. Moving between African dialects and English, the Choir’s diverse repertoire ranges from spirituals and traditional hymns to songs of freedom from South Africa’s apartheid era and specially arranged pop classics such as Bridge Over Troubled Water. All are given a powerful new vitality through the group’s passionate renditions and amazing harmonies, enhanced by catchy improvised dancing and live percussion that encourage those watching to swing along with the performers.

Dazzling costumes add to the jubilant presence on stage, as Soweto Gospel Choir draws together audiences in an immersive atmosphere overflowing with exuberance and sonorous beauty!
