Australian Stage

Vibrant and inspirational, the critically acclaimed Soweto Gospel Choir from South Africa will sing, dance and drum to deliver a tour-de-force performance! “The vivacious mix of peerless voices and high-energy dance is fun, glamorous, dignified and deeply enriching.” (Nottingham Post) In this celebratory centennial, the Soweto Gospel Choir combines African gospel, reggae, American pop, spirituals and South African freedom songs to deliver a musical message filled with hope and joy. Winners of two Grammys, an Emmy and three South African Music Awards, the Soweto Gospel Choir has collaborated with music titans including Celine Dion, Aretha Franklin, Josh Groban, Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and Stevie Wonder. It has performed for dignitaries such as Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Presidents Clinton and Obama, and members of the British royal family. A “worldwide phenomenon,” Soweto Gospel Choir has transformed audiences of all ages across the globe. Don’t miss your chance to see them live!  www.sowetogospelchoir.com
