"(The choir) has a cornucopia of remarkable voices: sharp, sweet, kindly, raspy and incantatory leads above a magnificently velvety blend.....the music was both meticulous and unstoppable.....the songs were both spirited and spectacular" - New York Times

They're back! With their vibrant dance and dynamic vocal harmonies, the Grammy Award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir is a worldwide phenomenon. The choir was formed to celebrate the unique and inspirational power of African gospel music. The twenty-six-member-strong ensemble draws on the best talent from the many churches in and around Soweto, South Africa. The choir has performed to sell-out crowds at major concert halls across the globe, and alongside such superstars as Bono, Queen, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder.
